Single-leg Romanian Deadlift
Stand on your left leg with you knee slightly bent. Pick your right foot off the ground. Without changing the bend at your knee, bend at your hips and lower your torso until it’s nearly parallel with the floor. (You can put your arms out to the side for stability if you like.) Your right leg should be off the ground, making a straight line with your body. Return to the standing position. Do eight reps on your left leg, then eight reps on your right.
Side-to-side Leg Swing
Stand tall and hold onto a chair or other object with both hands. Keeping your right knee straight, swing your left leg as high as you comfortably can out to the side. Swing it back toward your body so it crosses in front of your right leg. That’s one rep. Swing back and forth until you complete eight reps on your left side. Repeat with your right side for eight reps.
