The Romanian Deadlift was named after the Romanian weightlifter, Nicu Vlad, an Olympic medalist in 1984, 1988, and 1996 who was elected to the International Weightlifting Federation Hall of Fame in 2006. According to Jim Schmitz, a former USA Weightlifting Team Coach, Vlad was seen doing these flat-backed deadlift like exercise following a clean & jerk session doing triples of 250kg. When asked by other lifters what the exercise was called, Nicu and his coach Dragomir Cioroslan, had no name, stating that they did it because it made Nicu’s back strong for the clean. Therefore, it was given the name, ” The Romanian Deadlift.”
