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.
