When you click on the link below to see what is meant by Romanian Deadlifts (RDLs) you will see a video demo of the movement done by the soon-to-be legendary Sean Waxman, weightlifting coach. You will also see what it means to don a red sweatsuit and simply OWN it!
More importantly, he also owns and operates Waxman’s Gym in Lawndale, CA- about 15 minutes south of LAX. He was a competitive weightlifter on the US national team and his girlfriend Ashley is still competing on the national scene. Sean offers clinics and coaching- both web based and also live and in person. The latter is much preferred- but if you cant make the drive to Lawndale… at least check his blog for his commentary and for some technique pointers. Go to Pure Strength.
