How to Perform the Split-Stance RDL

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
