Romanian deadlift

One of the most effective workouts for strengthening your glutes and hamstrings is the romanian deadlift. When performed correctly, it involves a hip hinge movement and uses the muscles that are vital in performing other excerises in lifting, jumping and sprinting.

While your glutes and hamstrings are engaged- You’ll find that the muscles in the front (quadriceps) are also being used, as well as the upper back muscles, which is an effective way of strengthening your back muscles and posture (along side other back exercises). 

Technique

  • Hold the bar with an overhand grip approximately shoulder-width (your thumbs should brush the outside of your thighs).
  • Place your feet approximately hip-width apart, with knees soft and your feet straight ahead.
  • Maintaining a flat back position, bend forward at the hips lowering the bar towards the floor.
  • Reverse the position, extend your hips and return to the start position. 
  • Perform 8-10 reps (3-4 sets) 
  • Safety tip: keep your shoulder blades engaged as you lower.

👉🏼 Don’t make it your goal to be fit....
Make it your goal to be disciplined and being fit will follow. Being fit reflects hard work, you can’t obtain it without patience, passion and practice. You can’t inherit it.. You can’t borrow it.. You can’t hold on to it without constant dedication. Exercise to be the best version of YOU!! Eat to be healthy and nourish your body. Along the way.. Ignore the haters, the doubters, the nay-sayers and the unhealthy examples that were once feeding you. Always remember the same water that softens the potato, hardens the egg. It’s about what you’re made of! Let self motivation run through your veins... Now let’s do this! 😤

For me, my motivation comes from within.
I am a non-stop learner, non-stop experimenter, non-stop quencher of my curiosities, and a non-stop yearner to become better as a person. Life is about finding your passion and living within that dream! My passion is to improve the lives of others, by giving people the tools to boost their self-confidence, to learn how to live a healthy lifestyle and to chase their own dreams without the thought of fear or failure. My motivation comes from within but is boosted by my surroundings. You are who and what you surround yourself with. So hang around people who make you hungry for life, touch your heart and nourish your soul. Ultimately you are who you choose to be. You are not what happened to you in the past.. so let go. YOU ARE NOW! You are in this very moment. What will you do with it.. Who will you choose to become..
