Romanian deadlifts


Lock the sledge so that the bar is at mid-shin level.


Stand with wide stance close behind the handle bar. Grasp the handle bar shoulder-width apart in an overhand grip with legs not fully extended. Upper body is fully extended, arms are straight and lower back forms a slight hollow back. The gaze is directed forward.


Straighten the fully extended upper body over the hip joint in a controlled manner with the arms always extended. The head forms the extension of the spine. Push the buttocks back and then slowly return to the starting position.


To learn the movement, the sledge can be set higher (e.g. bar below knee joint). When you have mastered the movement, you will fix it deeper step by step.




During the entire exercise, keep the torso elongated and slightly arch the lower back (no bending).
