Suitcase Deadlift Exercise Tutorial

This is an awesome exercise I recently started to include with my deadlift training. Here is a video of how to do it.

Special notes:

I would do it without straps in order to get some grip work in.

Keep your core stable. If you can’t stop from leaning to one side, lighten the load and work your way back up.

You can do the same movement with a dumbbell, kettlebell or any other object you can grab with one hand. With that being said, the barbell wobbles more and forces your core to engage more, which is why I recommend using the barbell variation of the one arm suitcase deadlift when possible.

I personally use this as a supplemental lift during a lower body workout (toward the end of the workout or even the very end). I like it a lot. Give it a try, if you haven’t!
