Building Blocks: The MB Building Block Day 3

Posted by Nick Folker on Oct 20, 2015 10:12:15 PM

Find me on:

The MB RDL is a good teaching tool for developing athletes to learn the hinging movement before loading them with the bar. We also like to use it with athletes who struggle with hamstring flexibility.


Start with feet hip-width apart, toes forward, slight bend in the knees and holding the MB comfortably in front of you. Keeping your back flat, hinge at the hip to take the MB toward the ground. Keep your arms relaxed and MB close to your legs during the movement. Work on range of motion until your technique breaks down, pause, then return slowly to the start position without locking your knees out.
