The Kettlebell One-Leg Deadlift
- Take a kettlebell in your left hand and allow it to hang by your side.
- Bend your left knee, allowing your left toe to rest on the floor.
- Lower the weight as though you were reaching for the ground. Keep your back flat as you lift your left leg out behind you.
- Reverse direction when the kettlebell comes into contact with the floor.
- Perform this exercise on both sides, performing 8-10 repetitions on each
This is an advanced level kettlebell routine so if you're not yet to that level, don't try this exercise. We always advise that you work with a fitness professional to ensure that you're employing proper form and execution of your kettlebell workout, at least until you have progressed to the intermediate stage. It's important to avoid injury as well as to prevent the development of incorrect weightlifting habits. This is particularly crucial for beginners in kettlebell exercise.
