Powerbag Exercises – Single Leg Deadlifts

By September 30, 2011Fitness

Over the next few days Lynsey, from Eqvvs Training in Knightsbridge, will share some of her favourite Powerbag exercises.

The first in this series, Powerbag single leg deadlifts, are an advanced exercise, but it is great for training your hamstrings and glutes.

  1. Stand holding the Powerbag horizontally by both of the handles
  2. Take your weight onΒ one leg and hinge the body forward without lowering the leg that is lifted.
  3. Ensure the body remains straight and hinge forward to work the hamstrings
  4. Once you have lowered as far as possible whist keeping the leg on the floor straight, slowly rise up back to the upright position

Give it a try and share your comments and thoughts with us. If you would like more help and advice get in touch with us at the studio.
