Exercise of the month: Romanian deadlift

This exercise is my fav at the moment. Basically like a regular deadlift but you just bring the barbell to the knees instead of all the way to the ground.

I usually use a 25kg barbell and do 3x 10reps. It works the quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings as well as back and arm muscles.

To carry out the exercise successfully aim to bend from the hips keeping the legs straight and also your back as straight as you can.

I’m also so happy that I found a gym just five minutes away to go to whilst on my uni placement!

Happy lifting!
