Unilateral Single Stiff Leg Deadlift
This will be the first exercise in a series of five exercises that The Fitz Factor will be highlighting.
All are highly effective and beneficial and can be easily modified slightly to benefit the most elite athlete, a later-age senior or an exercise novice just beginning an exercise program.
By far, in my opinion, the unilateral (single leg) stiff leg deadlift has to be one of the best and underutilized exercises not only for good strength and conditioning at all levels but for balance work for the older population.
And probably one of the only exercises that can be easily modified to fit the most elite athlete or later age senior.
Why do I like this exercise so much?
If you’re a beginner stay close to something you can hold onto with your opposite hand until you are able to perform the exercise without holding on with perfect balance.
