Romanian Deadlifts (RDLs) are a significant exercise for developing maximum strength in the posterior chain, consisting of the hamstrings, glutes and back, which are crucial because downhill skiers are usually in a flexed position, leaning forward from the hips. Developing strength in the posterior chain is very important for preventing ACL injuries, especially in female athletes.
