Dumbbell Romanian Deadlift

Target Area: Lower Body 

Equipment: 2 x Dumbbells

  1. Begin with the dumbbells in front of your body with a slight bend in your knees. Ensure you maintain an upright and tall posture by positioning your shoulder blades backwards and downwards. Engage your glutes to stabilise your hips. 
  2. Hinge at your hips, allowing your waist to travel behind your heels and your upper body to travel over your toes. Slowly lower the weight until you feel a stretch through your hamstrings. Ensure you sit back on your hips. 
  3. Raise the dumbbells vertically upwards by pulling them to your hips. Ensure you maintain tightness through your torso and lock your hips at the top of the movement. This is one repetition.
