    Default Straight leg dead lift.

    I love this lift single leg with dumb bells or standard with a straight bar. Good exercise for lower back glutes and hams. Dont need to use a lot of weight and good form is necessary for full affect.

    Anybody else do this lift?

    I've been using it pretty steadily for the last year and a half or so. I kind of rotate back and forth between them and good mornings.

    Nop, and can't do it because my gym only invested in smith machines.

    Use dumb bells they work fine. With dumb bells you can do single leg straight leg dead lift. Balance on one foot.

    To add to that try using off-setting weights. Use a 25lb dumbell in one hand and 35lb in the other. This will force your core to really engage and focus on balance.
