We’ve talked before about the importance of doing unilateral exercises. They help you find muscle imbalances, target weak spots, and focus more specifically on certain areas.
And here’s the cool part. You don’t need a ton of weight to make a difference. Grab a moderate kettlebell (or dumbbell) and try the single-leg RDL. Here’s a demo from Brooke Ence.
It’s slow and low-impact, but don’t be fooled. You’re going to feel the burn on this one. Focus on form and the quality of movement, and really work to keep your hips squared.
The single-leg RDL is an excellent accessory exercise to add into your programming. Give it a shot!
