One of the most prescribed (and most favorite) exercises I give to patients is the single leg Romanian deadlift. It is such a well rounded exercise that can be easily progressed and regressed, works on multiple muscle groups, challenges balance, and emphasizes proper lifting mechanics. I give the SLRDL for most lower limb injuries and even low back pain when appropriate during the course of treatment.
Repeat 10x 3 sets. Try to not let your swing leg touch the ground throughout the set.
Too Easy?? Too Hard??
