The Romanian deadlift (RDL) works the muscles in the arch of the back, glutes, and hamstrings. (Its emphasis on the hams is slightly muted because the knees remain bent throughout the movement.)
People also ask, what muscles are worked in Romanian deadlift?
In the Crosshairs: Hamstrings and Glutes. One of the best exercises for hitting the glutes and hamstrings is the Romanian deadlift. This deadlift removes the knees from the equation, so the emphasis is all on the hamstrings and glutes. To do this exercise, stand over a loaded barbell resting on the floor.
What muscles do single leg RDLS work?
The single-leg Romanian deadlift strengthens the posterior chain. The gluteus muscles, hamstrings and adductor magnus are strengthened dynamically while synergistically working together to extend the hips. The lower back extensors function as stabilisers and are strengthened isometrically.
What does the good morning exercise work?
The good morning is not simply a “low back” movement. Done properly, the good morning works the entire length of the erector spinae: It loads the deep core muscles of the lower back. It trains proper hinging and requires proper firing of the gluteus maximus and glute-hamstring tie-in.
