Single Leg RDL Steps

1- Starting with a dumbbell in each hand, shift your weight to one side, balancing on one leg.

2- Keeping a slight knee bend on the down leg, hinge forward lowering your chest towards the ground.

3- Make sure you maintain a straight line from your heel through your shoulder.

4- Lower until your chest is parallel to the ground, making a T with the body.

5-Keep the shoulders back and do not reach the dumbbells towards the ground.  Repeat for 5 repetitions each side, moving slowly on the way up.
