    Romanian Deadlift vs. SLDL

    Ok, I know the difference ... but what's the difference?

    How does keeping the knees bent throughout the movement as opposed to more rigid make a difference?

    Any added benefit of one over the...

    Yeah, I found the specs on the amounts and type of chain, but I'm looking for a diagram of what the setup actually looks like.
