The Romanian deadlift is a great exercise to develop the hips and posterior chain. It is one of the foundational hip hinge movements and should be mastered to form the basis of any power development exercises. The Romanian deadlift can be a tricky one to pick up but it is always a good place to start for those newer to any form of deadlifting and always provides a useful tool for developing muscle and strength in the glutes, hamstrings and lower back.
