Any thoughts on this exercise? Good/bad/indifferent?

I just tried a one-legged straight-legged deadlift and found it incredibly difficult. Start with a light dumbbell and lower it to the floor while keeping your back in a plane. Requires balance and the use of your entire core to lower and raise a very light weight.

It's really hard for me so I like it. Try Bulgarian split squats too.

OK, good. Haven't really seen it much around the site, so just wanted to check.

Great exercise. Just make sure it looks something like this:

You should not look like you're doing an old-fashioned toe-touch calisthenic.

Also do a search of the boards. There are some really good threads about SLDL vs RDL. (Stiff-leg vs Romanian DL).
