Position of the Week: The Single Leg Cross Deadlift

Stretch, lift then bend over…

The Single Leg Cross Deadlift
An excellent move to prep for ski season!

1. Stand with your feet together and your arms stretched out to your sides, in a ‘cross’ position.
2. Lift your left leg straight out behind you, leaning your torso forward until it’s parallel to the floor. Your body should be in a straight line from your head to your left heel.
3. Hold for five seconds, return to the starting position, then repeat with your right leg. This is one rep.
4. Perform 2 sets of 15-20 reps.
