To do the 1/2 Squat, 1/2 Deadlift, start by standing on one leg, say your right leg.

Then start to bend your right knee as you hinge over and let your left leg kick back. Keep your back flat as you hinge over at the hips, pushing your butt back as you bend your knee to squat down. Really sit your butt back, don’t just lean forward.

You are going to hinge over as you also squat down on your right leg. Try to touch the ground with your arms, which are hanging straight down, but don’t round your low back just to touch down. Make sure to push your butt back as you sit back in your heel and squat down.

To make the move harder, add weights or take a 3-5 count to sink down.

Once you’ve gone as low as you can, drive back up to standing. Try not to touch your left toe down until fully standing. You can even make it more challenging by trying not to touch down between reps.

Hinge back over, sitting your butt back as you bend your standing leg to squat down. Touch the ground and come back up. Go as low as you can each time. The more you bend your knee as you hinge over, the harder the move will be.
