How To Perform Exercise

The romanian deadlift exercise is similar to the regular deadlift but differs because you keep your legs straight throughout the workout and bring the bar all the way to the ground at each rep.

Steps :

1.) Start off by placing a barbell in front of your feet on the ground and grabbing the barbell with a grip a bit wider than shoulder-width apart.

2.) Bend your knees slightly, keeping your hips and back straight.

3.) Lift the bar straight up concentrating on using your hips as you stand.

4.) When you are standing the bar should be resting against your thighs.

5.) Lower the bar to the floor with a slight bend in your knees flexing your hips back for stability.

6.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
