The Single Leg RDL (Romanian Dead Lift) is one of the most beneficial exercises for many reasons.
It can help with balance, posterior chain activation and strength, back and leg health, and helps with guard passing for BJJ.
In this video we look at a basic “X-Pass” which has many similar movements and components as the Single Leg RDL.
Although this exercise has many benefits, can be difficult to perform properly. I use a modified approach using a PVC pipe which has been extremely beneficial in training and teaching this movement.
This technique has also been a great benefit in improving my balance, base, and stability with standing guard passing in Jiu-Jitsu.
