Exercise of the Week – Sandbag Single Leg RDL

Exercise of the Week

The sandbag single leg Romanian Deadlift is a great hip extension accessory movement. It loads the glutes and hamstrings while working the lower back as a stabilizer. 

Make sure there’s a slight bend in your knees, shift your hips back and keep your chest up tall. If you don’t feel it in your hamstrings your chest might not be upright or you may be rotating your hips too much. Also keep the bag as close to your body as you can. 

Shoot for 3 sets of 8 reps per side. 

**The sandbag is a great teaching tool since you can drag it down your body without scraping up your legs. You can always use a dumbbell or barbell (using no additional weights actually make it a bit harder)
