ROMANIAN DEADLIFTS - SAVE & comment if you include these in your workouts ?? Or comment if find them tough & hard to get the form right! .
⬇️BELOW ARE OUR TIPS to help with your form that we have learnt along the way 😁⬇️
1️⃣ Drive your hips back & lower your chest, keeping your upper body completely in line & controlled!
2️⃣ With a slight bend in your knees bring the bar down just below your knees - don’t go too lower that your lower back bends! ⚠️The tension should only be in your hamstrings & glutes - going too low will move the tension to your lower back & cause injury, esp if you go too heavy!
3️⃣ At the bottom of the rep- concentrate on your glutes contracting, pushing through the hells to drive you back up! You should NOT be pulling the bar back up with your upper body!
⚠️ Think of this like a hinge movement from your hips & and your body should be tight, not moving & in line throughout!
Both of us complete this exercise at least once a week for hypertrophy reps (8-12) to build the muscles! This is also great to complete at volume at the end of your working sets for a burn out - 15-20 reps at a lower weight!
