Exercise 3: Romanian Deadlifts

When it comes to targeting your hamstrings, quads, and of course, your backside, this beginner-friendly move can't be beat. Grab your dumbbells for the next two moves!

  • Stand upright holding a pair of medium-weight dumbbells in each hand, arms at your sides, with your knees slightly bent.
  • Keeping your arms straight and knees slightly bent, slowly bend at the hips (not your waist) and lower the weights as far as possible without rounding your back, which should remain straight.
  • Now squeeze your glutes to slowly pull yourself up (don't use your back).
  • Do as many slow controlled reps as you can for one minute.
