Single-leg kettlebell deadlift

The kettlebell single-leg deadlift is a variation on the kettlebell deadlift where one foot stays planted on the ground while the other raises into the air at the bottom of the movement. It's popular in lower-body training for strength and muscle building, but also trains balance, grip, and the core muscles.


  1. Targets each glute individually to strengthen both sides equally
  2. Builds back and glute strength and size, as well as grip strength
  3. Teaches and enforces the hip hinge movement pattern for deadlifts
  4. If balance is a challenge, the movement is still effective if you hold on to a post or other stable object
