any feed back on this lift i hear its suppost to be an amazing lift for adding muscle
they are tough I can tell you that much. I'm going to be using them heavily over this next year.
Great lift, they helped my conventional deadlift a bunch.
A outstanding lift. Can't go wrong by adding it to your routine.
i do them off a step and they really help develop the glutes and hips. One thing thought, make sure to stay upright at the beginning cause if you are going heavy, the load will tend to pull you forward, especially off a step cause you dont have that initial drive since you are sitting so low. Really focus on keeping your chest up and keep that back tight. Otherwise your hips are gunna shoot up right off the bat and you'll end up using way too much back!
ima try usin the step
I'm a big fan of doing them off a platform...they're a fantastic lift, you really can't go wrong by adding them to your program.
It's a great lift...really taxes your entire body. If you want to mak it more challenging, perform the lift standing on a 4 inch box.
I did these for 9 months thinking it was how you did deadlifts. Worked out really, really well for me when I got my form corrected.
really tough on the entire body (especially the grip)
what about walking deadlifts as good?
i've tried them before and man they are hard. i think i might start using them again
deadlift noob here. So what is the major difference between these and normal deadlifts. Is the stance and the grip wider?
Basically you are deadlifting using a snatch grip which means you will have to pull from a lower position. That will result in a harder pull since you will have to use your glutes, quads and hams alot more, not to mention the distance of travel for the actual pull will be farther.
How much was your max with these?
can you do these with a mix grip?
Doubtful, unless you're a freak and have incredibly flexible wrists.
It would probably be safer to just use straps.
