How do you perform RDLS?
Are RDLS better than squats?
So, while you’ll certainly get a great leg workout from both exercises, the answer to whether deadlifts can replace squats lies in what your goal might be. If you want to improve strength in your quads, the squat is still a better choice. And if you want more gains for the back of your legs, the deadlift wins.
Whats RDL stand for?
The Romanian deadlift (RDL) is an exercise commonly performed with a barbell and is used to develop strength of posterior chain muscles including the erector spinae, gluteus maximus, hamstrings and adductors.
