Today we are talking about one of my absolute favorite movements, the single leg deadlift! I have heard this move referred to as the "instant butt lift" and that is NO lie.
This movement helps you gain balance, flexibility, glute strength and coordination, all at once! So how do we do it?
If you are brand new to the exercise, or need a refresher, start with NO weight. This is a hard move, so master it without weight before moving on.
a single leg deadlift is a "functional movement"
All the exercises I explain in my exercise library are what trainers like to call "functional movements". This means that they require a whole muscle GROUP to be activated, rather than just isolating one muscle. These exercises tend to get your heart rate up more, and they help to burn more fat and build more muscle!
I use these functional movements as the primary exercises in my workout plans. If you want a workout plan that is quick, effective and works well at building your curves and confidence, then make sure to check my workout plans out! There's routines for every schedule, and you will never get bored from doing the same thing each week!
If you want the workouts PLUS in depth coaching for other areas of your life like confidence, healthy habit creation, goal setting and mindset, make sure to check our my confidence coaching that includes the workout plans along with everything else!
