Exercise of the Week - Foam Roller Assisted Single Leg RDL

The foam roller assisted single leg RDL is an excellent exercise to teach someone how to correctly perform a single leg deadlift. This is a beginning level exercise to teach someone the movement prior to loading the movement with weight. The reason why this exercise works so well is it keeps the foot in contact with the hand via the foam roller. This keeps the torso parallel to the ground as a common fault in this exercise is rotating the hips and thorax.
