The RDL is a great exercise to target the low back, glutes, and hamstrings!!!! When performing the RDL you want to setup the bar at a height easily removed from the rack, once the bar is in your hands you want your knuckles down, scaps engaged, elbows out, knees slightly bent. Slowly lower the bar keeping your knees slightly bent focusing on your hips going back, while keeping your back staight, the bar should glide along your body. Once the bar reaches mid shin focus on your hamstrings and glutes firing, pulling the bar to starting position. Create a great day and get after it!!!!!! -Coach T

    Awesome video, great exercise and cute trainer lol… seriously it’s a very simple and easy to follow exercise but Im wondering since I don’t have time to go to gym how can I do that at home what do you call that metal he is holding? Can buy one of those or is there an alternative that can be found at home?
