Kettlebell Deadlift variation
An underrated movement that needs a lot of attention because it provides a lot of benefits that can go towards your compound lifts & also provides a means of working on balance & coordination, stability, core strength, hamstrings, and mobility of the hips, back and legs. In the above video, I am demonstrating this workout utilizing a 12kg kettlebell.
Now because I have a harder time with my left leg keeping its balance, I tend to add more reps to this side to help build it and focus in on it, but naturally I usually do between 12-15 reps on each side.
One thing to keep in mind, is this exercise is not meant to be fast paced, take your time and really focus on keeping your balance and utilizing the proper muscles with good technique/form. I tend to move a lot quicker in this video but if you are a beginner, do this exercise with little to no added weight and either hold on to something until you get more comfortable not having to do so, or touch the floor with the moving leg between reps (allowing you to keep your balance).
