The Split-Stance Trap Bar RDL is a great lower body posterior chain exercise that we use at CDSF because:
✅ It loads the glutes and hamstrings with less spinal loading than bilateral deadlifts.
✅ It’s a good progression for working towards the 1-Leg RDL.
✅ Teaches proper posterior weight shifting.
To perform be sure to:
• Keep a vertical shin with your front leg
• Think about loading 80% of weight on front foot and 20% on back
• Push through your front heel
