Work Your Bum and Legs While Lifting Dumbbells

Get Lifted: Romanian Deadlifts

Looking for a new move to work your lower body? One exercise you may want to try are Romanian deadlifts. They're a great way to work your hamstrings while also working your quads and butt.

Here's how you do them:

  • Stand upright holding a pair of medium-weight dumbbells in each hand, arms at your sides, with your knees slightly bent.
  • Keeping your arms straight and knees slightly bent, slowly bend at the hips (not your waist) and lower the weights as far as possible without rounding your back, which should remain straight.
  • Now squeeze your glutes to slowly pull yourself up (don't use your back).
  • Do three sets of 12 reps.

New to this? Then use a lighter pair of dumbbells until you get stronger — you don't want to strain your back. Already a pro? Then try doing it on just one leg.
