Single-leg Romanian deadlift

Level

Outer Unit

Variations

  • The single-leg Romanian deadlift & row is a compound exercise (combining the single-leg Romanian deadlift with the one-arm row) that emphasizes the cross-body connection even more. This exercise targets the entire posterior chain: hamstrings, glutes, the lower and upper back muscles. It is suitable for intermediate and advanced levels of training.
     

  • The staggered-stance Romanian deadlift targets the entire posterior chain and is suitable for all fitness levels. The staggered-stance Romanian deadlift & pull requires less balance and stability than a single-leg stance and is therefore a good progression to master the single-leg Romanian deadlift & pull. Due to the more stable staggered stance, more weight can be lifted, emphasizing more the strengthening of the upper back, compared to the single-leg Romanian deadlift & pull.
