Difference between traditional deadlifts and Romanian deadlifts
Both traditional deadlifts and Romanian deadlifts are effective exercises. One type of deadlift is not completely superior to the other. However, there are some differences. The choice depends on what feels appropriate: your fitness goals, strengths, limitations, and comfort. Romanian targets the hamstrings more than the traditional deadlift, making them more effective for those who want to strengthen this area. Romanian deadlifts also exercise the glutes (buttocks) and forearm flexors. They also put less pressure on the low back; hence, it is ideal for people with back pain. Romanian deadlifts also help to increase hip mobility.
