Romanian Deadlifts

September 9th, 2014 by

Romanian Deadlifts: Great exercise for the posterior chain. 

1. Set up with a hip-width stance.

2. Keep your chest up.

3. Push hips back to hinge at the waist and start your descent, keeping weight on the heels. Normally I would place small plates under my toes to help keep weight on the heels, as well as to better target the hamstrings.

4. Drive hips forward to come back to the starting position, while squeezing the glutes and locking out the hips at the top of the movement.
