Romanian Dumbbell Deadlift

Step 1

Step 1

Please watch the video before attempting for first time. DON’T BEND OVER. Instead, bend your knees so that your thighs are almost parallel with the floor and pick up the dumbbells with your palms facing backwards and your arms touching the outside of your knees, with your palms facing towards backwards. Look in a mirror and check that your back is slightly arched. At no point must you round your shoulders.

Step 2

Step 2

Straighten your arms and fix your gaze straight ahead (not the floor). Stick your chest out and then begin to lift the weights by standing up and pushing your hips forward. DO NOT bend your arms, or round your shoulders. As you stand up ensure the dumbbells stay close to your body.

Step 3

At the top, your arms should be straight, your glutes nice and tight and your gaze forward, then lower the weights reversing the process.


This exercise requires real concentration and if performed incorrectly can lead to injury. I suggest everyone starts with very light weights , until you find your form.
