This week's movement of the week is a RIP Trainer Single Leg Deadlift.
Moving slowly & prioritizing your very best posture will be the key to your success this week! Creating tension through your upper back is crucial to the overall stability you will be working to develop while performing this movement.
Be sure to pull the 'dowel' apart with your hands and keep the center of the 'dowel' in line with your sternum. This should help you keep the resistance balanced throughout the body.
You will also want to make sure the resistance band is on the same side as the leg that extends off the floor & behind you. This will create stability on each side of your body. The lower body will be engaged with the floor & the upper body engaged with the RIP trainer = Cross-Connection!
Here's your checklist:
1. Strong Unilateral Stance
2. Pull the 'dowel' apart with your hands with a lot of strength.
3. Hinging from the hips allowing the back leg to raise off the ground.
4. Maintain neutral hips, strong abdominals & mid-back.
5. Control your body as you move.
