ACL Injury Prevention Series

ACL Injury Prevention – Video #8

 

Hey guys, Dr. Shawn Rennick here from Action Sports Clinic and we continuing on with our ACL Exercise prevention program and so in this one Sofia is going to demonstrate a single leg deadlift.

So, the set up for this is we are going to have the kettle bell just slightly in front of the foot that she is going to use.

She is going to use her right arm to grab the bell and at the same time as she goes down to do that she is going to contract her core and she is going to pivot in the hip and then come up using her other leg and arm as balance.

 

Single Leg Deadlift…

She is keeping her core tight as she does that and as she comes up she is keeping the core tight and her glute is doing all of the work, you can see how she is doing that.

So for this one, this is a 35 lb bell, you can start off with a 20 or 25 lb bell or something like that, something that is manageable and you want to aim for probably 3 sets of 10 on each leg.
