Sometimes you see an exercise that makes so much sense, you have to steal it. Unfortunately, I can’t remember who I stole this from. It’s either Smitty from Diesel Crew or Mike Boyle from Strengthcoach.com. Either way, this is such a great exercise. I’m not ready to put a bar on the backs of my current crew, so this is the next best thing. The video is a few weeks old. Currently, they are holding a 50 lb dumbbell now for sets of 8 reps. Holding it in this fashion makes the torso remain in a vertical position, so no forward flexion of the spine and a healthier low back, no axial loading of the spine either. Give it a shot for your knee dominant exercise in your program and let me know what you think.
