Trap Bar Split Stance Rdl
This exercise involves using a trap bar (a type of weightlifting bar) and performing a split stance Romanian deadlift (RDL) movement. The split stance involves one foot forward and one foot back, and the RDL movement involves hinging at the hips and lowering the weight towards the ground while keeping the back straight. This exercise targets the hamstrings, glutes, and lower back muscles.
