Single-Arm Deadlift

The single-arm deadlift increases strength and stability in the entire body, while correcting muscular imbalances. Single-arm deadlifts demand more balance and engage different stabilizing muscles from a standard deadlift.

    Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes pointed completely forward, placing your shins up against a barbell. Bend your knees, push your hips back and grab the bar with one arm using an overhand grip.
  2. Single-Arm Deadlift
    Push your chest out, thrust your hips forward, and stand up while lifting the bar. Pause, bend your legs, and lower the bar back to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Be sure to pull up explosively in a controlled motion.
  • Be sure to keep the barbell close to the body throughout the movement.
  • Don't let your back round or body lose alignment. Be mindful of proper posture.
