Booty Busting Series--Best Exercises to Build that Butt#24: Cable RDLs

Romanian Deadlifts (as we saw in #23) are brilliant for helping you to build serious glutes and hamstrings, but this exercise changes it up slightly. Instead of using a barbell (which pulls directly downward), you will use a cable. This alternates the angle of the "pull", changing the part of your glutes that do the work when you lift. When the cable is set around mid-level, the work is mostly done when you are nearly erect. When the cable is low, the work is done when you are in the middle range of your lift. When doing it with barbells or dumbbells, the work is done at the low range of your lift. By changing it up, you alter the workout.

Cable Romanian Deadlifts

Stand facing the cable machine, gripping the bar just beyond shoulder width apart. Keep your back straight, your knees slightly bent, and your chest up.

Stop at roughly knee level, and stand back up--feeling the burn in your lower back and glutes.
