How to do a Single Leg Romanian Deadlift (Dumbbell)

  1. Grab a pair of moderately-heavy dumbbells and stand tall with your feet hip-width apart and toes pointed slightly out.
  2. Bend your knees slightly, and bring your shoulders back.
  3. Lift one foot off the floor and bend the knee of your supporting leg a bit more for better gluteal activation.
  4. Take a breath and hinge at the hips as you keep your supporting leg in a static position. Your other leg should extend back, and your spine should remain neutral.
  5. Lower your torso until it becomes parallel with the floor. You should feel an intense stretch in your posterior muscles.
  6. Contract your glutes as you exhale and slowly raise your torso to the starting position by extending your hips forward as your back leg gets in line with the supporting one.
  7. Take a deep breath and repeat the motion. After that, do the same number of reps on your other leg.
