Reading Time: 2 minutes
Most lifters (especially men) only train what they can see.
Training the mirror muscles (chest, biceps, shoulders, and abs) make up the vast majority of the average trainee or meatheads’ workout.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with training what you can see, the problem arises when you do not train what you cannot see in the mirror.
The average trainee seriously neglects their glutes, hamstrings, back, and calves.
When was the last time you went to a commercial gym and saw more guys deadlifting instead of curling?
You can always tell who is a real athlete and who is a charlatan by looking them from the back.
Appearing as Adonis from the front and Patrick Pancake from the back has no value.
Your back, hamstrings, glutes, and calves need love too!
Of all the movements that target the posterior of your body, there is one exercise that has stood the test of time: Romanian Deadlifts which are also known as RDLs.
RDLs will build incredible strength and muscle when they are performed with the correct form.
The only things you need to do this move are a barbell, plates, clamps, the right mindset, and an understanding of how the exercise is supposed to be performed.
Doing RDLs with bad from can literally end your lifting career if you were to suffer a major lower back injury.
I’ve seen guys get hurt while doing their version of RDLs. The movie always ends poorly when you have no script.
Knowing how to do Romainian deadlifts (RDLs) correctly will allow you to add serious muscle to your posterior chain.
Check out my video above to learn about how to properly do Romanian Deadlifts.
Your lower back will thank you tremendously.
I’ll holla at you next time.
