In this HOW TO I will be showing you how to do a kickstand deadlift, with some tips, tricks, and common mistakes I see. Please complete the basics of Deadlifting before this video!
Props Needed: IF you like using a dowel, broom stick, or mop to give you some feedback, you can also use it in this one.
Why I love kickstand deadlifts? They are a fantastic exercise for developing full body stability, while working unilateral (single sided), posterior (back of your body) strength. Because they have a single sided feature to them, they have a great carry over/cross over for cyclists, runners, and hikers. They can be a great alternative to the single legged deadlift if balance is a factor in you successfully completing them.
What to Keep in mind: Kickstand deadlifts can be done body weight, weights, or offset weighted (if you only have 1 heavy weight). IF you use 1 heavy weight, that weight is always held in the hand on the side with the heel lifted.
