1. Dumbbell Romanian Deadlift
Why it works: RDLs are great for building the proper activation patterns in your hamstrings and glutes while also strengthening your back. Since you likely spend much of your day sitting in the car and at a desk, RDLs help activate these areas at the start of the workout.
How to do it: Start with a light set of dumbbells. Form is especially key to getting full benefit from the RDL. Don’t think of the exercise as bending forward but rather as sitting back with your torso moving forward instead of staying upright.
Prescription: 10 reps
