1⃣ Single-Leg Deadlift With Kettlebell
This exercise is perfect for your backside, but it engages your hamstring, glutes and core too. Here’s how to perform a single-leg deadlift with kettlebell:
Hold a 20 pounds kettlebell in your left hand, and lift your right foot slightly off the ground. This is the starting position.
Keeping your back straight, lean your entire upper body forward while raising your right leg. Maintain your right leg in line with your body. The kettlebell should be closer to the floor.
With your back straight, return to the starting position. At this time one rep is done.
(If you want to make this workout more challenging, don’t touch the floor with your right leg as you go through your reps.)
Do 3 sets of 15 reps on each leg.
