Hip-Dominant Exercise

Lower body exercises are typically divided into two groups, "Hip-Dominant" and "Knee-Dominant." The former usually includes exercises like Stiff-Legged Deadlift variations, while the latter includes exercises like Single-Leg Squat variations. The above video shows a fantastic called "2-Arm/1-Leg Stiff-Legged Deadlifts." The participant is using Kettlebells, but Dumbbells work just as good. Remember to keep a flat back, a slight bend to the knee of the grounded leg, and hips squared toward the ground at the bottom of the movement.
