DB Single Leg Straight Leg Deadlift with Wall Support

Complete 10 repetitions

Buy Dumbbells
Primary
Lower Body
Hinge

The DB single leg straight leg deadlift with wall support is one of the best single leg hinging exercises in our exercise library.

Benefits of DB Single Leg Straight Leg Deadlift with Wall Support

The main benefit of this exercise is to build strength in the hamstring and lower back, but it also targets other areas of the posterior chain like the muscles in the glutes. It is a great exercise to transition from the more simple bi-lateral hinging movement pattern to the more complex single leg hinging. Using the wall takes away some of the balance aspects to the exercise and allows us to put emphasis on the hinging movement. This doesn’t by any means make the movement easy technically, keeping the hips inline is a real challenge and requires a lot of intentional thought from even very advanced trainees.

How To Do DB Single Leg Straight Leg Deadlift with Wall Support

  1. Place the hand one the wall with the dumbell in the other hand.
  2. Lift the leg closest to the wall off the floor and bend the knee and the hip on the leg that is grounded.
  3. Hinge at the hips, keeping the back straight and an arch in the lower back.
  4. Once you feel a pull in the hamstring return to the starting position.

Coaching Tips For DB Single Leg Straight Leg Deadlift with Wall Support

Follow these cues to perform DB Single Leg Straight Leg Deadlift with Wall Support correctly:

  • Keep shoulders and hips square
  • Feel the tension in the hamstring
