The Romanian deadlift is a very effective and great muscle building exercise which works both on your lower back muscles, but more significantly and primary used muscles when it comes to this exercise, are your hamstrings.

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a barbell at thigh level. Your hands should be about shoulder-width apart.
  • Keeping your back straight, bend at your waist and sit your hips back to lower the bar.
  • Keep the bar close to your shins and lower as far as your flexibility allows.
  • Forcefully contract your glutes to extend at your hips and stand up. You should aim to do 3-4 sets hitting around 10 or 12 reps.
