Romanian Deadlift



To perform the romanian deadlift first set a barbell with desired weight on rack. Grasp the bar using a shoulder width overhand grip, with your hands exactly outside your legs and dismount it from the rack. Step away from the rack, position your feet about shoulder wide apart and stand completely straight, with slightly bend knees and your head looking forward. This will be your starting position.


Take a deep breathe and start lower the bar by leaning the torso forward at the waist and pushing with the hips way back. Continue to lowering the bar until you feel a good stretch in your hamstrings. Then carefully change the direction of the movement and bring the bar up by driving the hips forward and straightening your torso to the upright position as you breathe out.
