Staggered Stance Deadlift – Band

  • HOW: Start in a standing staggered stance position with a band anchored under your front foot, hold the band in each hand. Begin the exercise by hinging at your hips and pushing your butt back, then push through your heels and push the ground away to return to starting position and repeat.
  • FEEL: This should feel like a lower body workout, specifically your glutes, hamstrings, and entire posterior chain. You should feel your front leg working more with at least 80-90% of your weight on the front leg. Think of the back leg as a kickstand to help with balance. Depending on the amount of resistance, you will also feel your upper back and shoulder blades working with this exercise.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not excessively bend or arch your back, perform a good hip hinge with proper form. Do not shift too much weight onto your back foot. Perform a hip hinge, not a squat
