Exercise Workshop – Romanian Deadlift (RDL)

17/06/2010

 

The Romanian Deadlift (RDL)

What does it do?

Romanian Deadlift (RDL)

Romanian Deadlift (RDL)

This exercise strengthens the back, bum and back of legs.

Why do it?

  • To strengthen the back half of your body.  A lot of us are over-strong in the front and weak at the back of the body.  So this can help redress the balance.
  • Can help improve your posture (only when done correctly).
  • It is a great first step to learn the harder, normal deadlift.
  • Teaches people to use the strong, powerful hip joint, instead of the weaker, more delicate spine.

This is one of the first exercises we will be covering in my Exercise Workshop here in Skipton on Sunday July 4th.  If you are at all interested in learning how to do safe, efficient and effective exercise, click here and book yourself in!
