How’s your balance? Fitness trainer Tim McComsey is here to help you out with balance with this single leg deadlift.
This workout is also great for strengthening your core, legs, and upper body. But it does take coordination and stability, so start out slow, and try not to take a tumble.
Tim takes two traditional workouts, the deadlift and the side lateral raise, and combines them into one powerhouse of an exercise.
Begin by standing on your left leg, holding a weight in your right hand. Keeping your back flat, bend at the hips and stretch the back of your left leg. Tighten your core as you straighten up, directly into a lateral raise. Perform several reps, then switch legs and give this single leg deadlift a try on the other side.
