Hey! This is Dany J. in Southlake, Texas at Camp Hero Fitness. Today, I’m going to show you how to do a one arm deadlift. Deadlift exercises are normally known for strength, and people try to lift as heavy as they can on a deadlift. But, we’re going to do a one arm deadlift, which is a little variation. It works your core a lot more, and your right and your left side. So, you’re going to stand with your feet a little wider than shoulder width, like a regular deadlift. You’re actually going to bend over and reach your hand in the middle of the bar, your other arm out for balance. And, you’re going to keep the bar close to your body, stand right up, squeeze your butt. Make sure your form is great, look straight ahead, lower to the ground, and bring it back up. You want to try to do at least 10 on each side. Switch arms just to practice your balance and practice both sides well. It’s really important when you’re doing any deadlifts to have proper form and a straight spine. You never want to bend over and round your back. Your chest is always up, and that’s going to help you keep a nice straight back. It’s especially important when you’re doing one arm deadlift, because you’re putting more pressure on one side. So, a good tip is to keep your head up, never curl your neck, and never bend over at the waist. Hips are always back, chest is up, and back is flat. Go lighter if you have to. You never want to sacrifice form for weight. Again, this is Dany J. at Camp Hero Fitness, and I just showed you how to do one arm deadlifts.
