How to Do Kettlebell Romanian Deadlift

The kettlebell Romanian deadlift should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the kettlebell Romanian deadlift.

Beginning

Beginning Kettlebell Romanian Deadlift

Begin by standing with your feet hip-width apart and the kettlebell handle in the middle of your feet. To tilt forward and hold the kettlebell with both hands, use standard KB deadlift form. Exhale at the top of the movement as you drive your hips forward to full extension. The kettlebell should be near to your thighs and in front of your torso.

Movement

Kettlebell Romanian Deadlift Movement

1. Draw your right toes behind your left heel somewhat. Take a deep inhale and tighten your core, causing tension to spread throughout your entire body.

2. By extending your right leg and making your body parallel to the ground, you can locate your hinge position. As you hinge, visualize a straight line from the top of your head to your right heel. Keep your spine in a neutral position.

3. To keep your hips straight to the ground, make sure your right heel is pointed up.

4. As you drive your hips forward to full extension, maintain tension in your core and lats, standing tall and exhaling at the peak of the action. Throughout this action, the kettlebell should follow your left leg.

5. Send your hips back, hinge forward, and place the kettlebell back in its starting position to return it to the floor.

6. Carry on with the movement on the opposite side.
