Single-arm side deadlift

The single-arm side deadlift is a compound exercise that strengthens the glutes, quads, hamstrings, back, and core. It has more of a core stability and anti-rotational component than other deadlift variations. The side deadlift is usually done for low to moderate reps, such as 5-8 reps per side, with a focus on posture and movement quality.


  1. Develops full-body strength and coordination
  2. Serious core challenge to resist tipping to the side
  3. Significant challenge to grip
  4. Excellent accessory movement for the deadlift
