Romanian Deadlifts

Tonight I want to talk about Romanian deadlifts (RDL). These are amazing for your glutes and hamstrings.

To start off stand up straight with a moderate weight dumbbell in each hand with your arms at your sides and knees bent slightly.

Keep your arms straight and knees slightly bent, slowly bend at the hips (think of a hinge) and not at the waist. Lower the weights as far as you can without rounding your back, which should remain flat. Think about scraping the weights down your shins.

To pull yourself up, squeeze your glutes and slowly pull up. Do not use your back!

When first trying an RDL start with a lighter weight and work your way up. And enjoy the tight backside you will be rewarded with!
