STIFF LEG DEADLIFT (RDL)
THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN A TRADITIONAL DEADLIFT (watch closely)
The only thing that separates the stiff RDL from the traditional is in the knees. If you are looking to destroy your hamstrings in one move.....well this is it.
* Choose a close stance with the feet and an overhand underhand grip at the bar.
* Keeping the bar close to the shins start to hinge at the hips (see our hinge video).
* Keep back flat and chin tucked to the chest to maintain good posture.
* Keep knees straight or with a soft bend. The point is to get as straight as possible for maximum hamstring stretch.
