Audio for Single Leg Deadlift with Overhead Reach Exercise
Right. Now we’re on to the single legged deadlift with the overhead reach.
A great exercise, again works the back of the body.
And because we’re going to balance on one leg, it involves a little bit more stability as well. So, good for your balancing skills.
This is how it looks like.
So, from the side, to pick one foot up softly on this side, so don’t lock the leg out. Just keep it nice and soft.
From here, keeping the chest up and not bending from the lower back, we’re going to reach down towards the floor, bending this knee. Keep looking forwards. Fingertips to the floor. Stand up. Push the hips through, and reach up, still staying on the one leg.
So you come down, touch and back up.
Down, touch and back up.
Touch and back up.
A tough exercise, you’re going to really feel that working into your hamstrings and into your glutes as your one leg really works hard to stabilize. But it’s a great exercise to practice.
You’re going to perform 10 repetitions on each side for a total of 20 reps.
