But you did not address the fact that the RDL starts from a hang and starts with an eccentric movement and that the SLDL starts from the floor and is a concentric movement. This is very important when explaining the differences.
In reality no deadlift should be done with the bar away from the legs, SLDL or RDL. That is dangerous and puts one in a mechanical disadvantage
