How to Perform the Single-Leg Deadlift

Today’s post is a clip from Episode 3 of our monthly series PT to the Gym with Suarez Sports and Orthopedic Physical Therapy . In it CDSF coach Mike Sirani and Pat discuss how to perform the single-leg deadlift and why it’s a smart option for rerouting your lower body training when experiencing hip or low back pain when squatting or doing other bilateral exercises.

To Perform:
