Single Leg Deadlifts. Why should you train them? 
I train single leg deadlifts one time per week. Usually I use double 22kg/97lbs, double 24kg/106lbs, or double 26kg/114lbs kettlebells for 5 sets of 5 reps.

On Monday I did my first two sets with double 22kg to warm up and then did sets 3, 4 and 5 with double 24kg (see video below…)

Single leg deadlifts carry strength over to many movements like lunges, Turkish get-ups, pistol squats and even bilateral (2-legged barbell or kettlebell) deadlifts. If you can single leg deadlift your bodyweight on one leg for reps, imagine how much you can deadlift with two legs for reps??

Learn more about the single leg deadlift, as well as the kettlebell basics listed below, at my StrongFirst Kettlebell Course on September 23, 2018 in Las Vegas at Life Time Athletic – Summerlin.
