    Is a straight-knee deadlift really a thing?

    https://exrx.net/WeightExercises/Ham...ghtLegDeadlift

    I remember trying this exercise years ago and thought it blasted the hamstrings with the hams stretched at the knee joint. Any time I've searched for "straight leg deadlift" though, it's always conflated to stiff-leg deadlift.

    Is exrx the only source that this exercise exists?

    I don't like it because the bottom half of the movement is all lower back - so you have to keep the weight down to avoid injury risk - but then the weight is too low for hamstring activation nearer the stop.

    Stick to Romanian deadlift and do separate back extensions if needed IMO.

    I do them as part of AP, but as Suffolk mentioned, using more modest weight. At one time I could flat-palm the floor with locked knees, so now they're as much a stretching movement as anything. On the upward movement, I can feel the exertion on my core.

    Actually this exercise is a light weight hamstring and gluteus stretch exercise You need to perform tis exercise in order to lengthen and tone your muscle ,At the same time go for heavy weight hams curls (machine) to provide them a sweep/peak.

    The only part of this comment that was true was the fact that it's a hamstring exercise
