How to: Single-Leg Romanian Deadlift & Crunch
Primary Muscles Used:Upper Legs, Glutes, Hamstrings
- Plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.
- Bend your left knee slightly and set this as a fixed angle. Without changing the angle of your left knee, hinge forwards from your hips until your torso is parallel to the floor, extending your right leg behind you, ensuring that your toes point towards the floor. At the same time, extend your arms directly in front. Ensure that you keep your hips level, maintain a proud chest and that your head is an extension of your spine. You should feel tension in the back of your leg and glutes.
- While maintaining the bent-over position, draw your elbows and right knee towards your chest in a crunch movement before reaching back out and extending into the full single-leg romanian deadlift position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side.
