Dumbbell Romanian Deadlift instructions
Step-by-step instructions
1
Start by holding the dumbbells down at your sides, standing with your feet about shoulder-width apart.
2
Slightly bend your knees and push your hips and butt back as though you're going to sit in a chair.
3
Lower your torso towards the ground, letting the dumbbells slide down the front of your legs. Stop when your back is parallel to the ground.
4
Stand up straight again, with the dumbbells hanging in front of your body. Use your legs to power the movement, not your back.
5
Remember to keep your back straight and the weights close to your body, to avoid straining your back. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
