Tip: Romanian Deadlift With Band

Use this to fire up your hams, glutes, and upper back before deadlifts. It's great for grooving the hip hinge pattern.

Romanian or stiff-leg deadlifts with a band are excellent for "grooving" the hip hinge pattern and waking up your glutes and hamstrings before deadlifting.

Use this exercise as part of a warm-up for 2-4 sets of 10-20 reps. Or use it as a high-rep finisher. Time how long it takes you to complete 100 reps and then try to beat your time in the next workout.
