I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE deadlifts! I start with 8 reps, and work my way up to heavy singles. (I'm a powerlifter, lol). Then I either hit a variation of good mornings or my second love.........ZERCHER SQUATS



If you use proper form, your back will be ok. And if you're lifting big, wear a belt.


And third, Vikes are weak, Percs are where it's at

What are zercher squats?

At least once a year I like to do a synthesis of bodybuilding and powerlifting, so work from about 10 reps down to sets of 4-6.

It was doing this when I realised how important it is to keep a training journal.

I found my old 'heavy training' and I am using the same weight now during high volume comp diet training!

What is your max dead lift Shawty?

Zercher Squats.....

http://youtube.com/watch?v=gJbgnW80mWk

Ed Zercher (a powerlifter) originated them. He did not have a squat rack, so what he actually did was put the bar on the floor as if he was going to do deadlifts, and he would squat all the way down, place the bar in the crooks of his arms and squat it that way. Most these days just pick the bar up from a low setting on the power rack. It works all the deadlift muscles. It's a form of specialty training that alot of the Westsiders use to train for deadlifts. They're AMAZING, and I've found them to help with explosion from the floor when doing deadlifts. In fact, I NEVER do speed work on deadlifts but have awesome explosion.
