Exercise Technique Tip – Dumbbell RDL

Exercise Technique Tip of the week – Dumbbell RDL

Dumbbell Romanian(What do the Romanians have to do with it? Not sure…but it sounds bad ass) Deadlifts are one of our deadlifts variations (hence the name). This movement strengthens your glutes, hamstrings, lower back and a little bit of the lower leg. The execution of the exercise is not particularly hard but there are some fine points that everybody should know.

Deadlifts/Romanian Deadlifts are one of the best exercises to lose weight or gain muscle mass. Oh and maximize your booty!
