Perfect Your RDL Movement Pattern

Perfect Your RDL Movement Pattern

The movement required for any deadlift or deadlift variation (including RDLs – Romanian deadlifts) requires you to perform a hinge movement pattern. Perfecting your hinge pattern will massively improve your lifting technique for deadlifts!

This is a tried and tested drill that requires minimal equipment and you can even do it at home. Watch the video and try it out, don’t worry if you don’t get all 3 points of contact straight away, just keep working on it!

Watch the video - how to improve your RDLs

Be sure to keep an eye out for more youtube videos appearing on my channel and blog page! I’ll posting lots of fitness videos and exercise demonstrations this year. A big focus of mine is getting people to perform exercises properly. So, I do have pretty long explainations in my videos. But it’s worth learning the correct movement patterns from the get go!

Your Romanian deadlift challenge!

Try out the exercise drill above and let me know how you got on! Even better, if this video helped you nail the movement then tag me @barefacedfitness on Instagram in your story or post.

Remember the tips I mentioned in the video – focus on the 3 points of contact, the head, between the shoulder blades and lower back. Tilt forwards and try not to maintain a constant gaze as you move, let your head come down with you.

Once you feel like you’ve nailed this drill, try it out by doing a weighted Romanian Deadlift and notice the difference!
