The dumbbell kickstand deadlift is a movement targeting the muscles of the hamstrings, glutes, and back. The kickstand position can help focus the stretch and contraction on each individual leg, similar to a single-leg Romanian deadlift, while presenting less of a balance challenge. It can be performed in low reps, such as 5-8 reps per set, for strengthening the posterior chain, or for higher reps for muscle growth.
May allow a greater stretch in hamstrings than two-legged Romanian deadlift
Great accessory movement for the barbell deadlift
