One-Legged Deadlifts

Be Graceful

One-legged Deadlifts will also greatly improve your balance which will translate into how you carry yourself day to day. These kinds of balance exercises not only build muscle but also will have you carrying yourself in a more graceful manner. You want a sexy strut…these will help you with that as well.

Be sure to do this exercise slowly going down and coming up. It’s easier to do them quickly but you won’t get near the value out of them versus doing them slowly. Much like a ballet dancer doesn’t rip aggressively through their exercises, you are practicing control, not just strength, with this move.

Be Long & Tall

Keep your body long as throughout the movement. When you begin to bend over feel as though there is a straight line from the crown of your head to the heel of your foot (of the leg that is going up and out). Reach out with both your head and heel to stretch that length. Do not cave over at the abdomen. This will make the exercise harder but will allow you to get so much more out of it. In other words, keep your back straight as well.

Again this will translate with the way you carrying yourself. Standing taller and straighter will give you the beautiful posture you want.

All told this exercise has the ability to not only improve your legs but it will add co-ordination and grace to you as well. Give these a try and let us know below what you’re getting out of One-Legged Deadlifts.
