ROMANIAN DEADLIFT X STIFF-LEG DEADLIFT. I get so many questions on the differences between these two! I know I see these getting confused a lot on social media! Going to show you them side by side so you can see👏🏼 Tag a friend to help them out!
Romanian Deadlift is more hip extension and different knee placement, and you aren’t lowering the bar as low as you would for a stiff leg deadlift. You are also bending your knees more for a Romanian deadlift and sitting back into the exercise. These exercises are also based a lot on your flexibility level! These exercises target hamstring/glutes. Stiffleg is like the name! You aren’t going to be bending your knees as much, and this exercise really focuses on flexibility. There are slight differences, but now that you see them side my side, you can spot them!
