  • Sometimes for back thickness

    I have guys face the bench on this machine while standing up (with the seat lowered all the way)

    http://www.uc.edu/fitness/images/HammerShrug.jpg

    and without a great deal of knee bend like there is in a regular deadlift (not quite stiff legged either but the exact same knee bend you would use on bent over rows)

    you grab the very bottom bars (not the easier top shrugging bars--THE BOTTOM ONES--STRAP UP)

    You have to kind of find your footing (usually you quickly find it on the first rep) --(you will probably realize you have to have your feet closer to the machine than you originally thought)

    the first 4/5 is like a strict rack deadlift, the last 1/5 of the motion is you shrugging backwards (not upwards like a regular shrug)

    (if you stand up right now and stick your chest out with your arms hanging by your sides and then you try (the motion of trying, it cant be done) to touch your elbows together in back of you while shrugging your traps thats as close as i can explain it

    Hammer deadlifts (after warmups one set for 9-12 and one set for 6-8)

    no freefall drop or bouncing on the return, control it down and lightly touch and go. on the return if your face and head is passing right close to the top of that upright seat, you are probably doing it right)

    when you take the fear out of lifting, it then becomes just excersise.

                      biceps teckno

                      get a pulldown bar and attach it to a low cable pulley--grab the bar with a wide grip (grab it at the bends in the bar--yes i know thats wide)--thats how wide i want this to be

                      you know when you do a regular barbell curl and you curl it up and you kind of lean back and curl the bar in up over the hitch--in front of your delts--so its kind of a relief for a second-you dont do that here--there is no locking it in with your forearms vertical

                      you either put one foot in front of the other for balance or lean over slightly at the waist (im talking slight lean with chin out in front--dont overthink this and lean over too much). Everytime you curl up you hit your chin (or it doesnt count) and control the return. So there is no "oh thank god i got the bar up, now i can rest" hitch in this at all. Its curl it up to your chin while your slightly leaning forward (however you want to get into that stance) --and then control the return all the way down till your arms are absolutely straight and then curl again

                      15-30rp with 20 rp being the best

                        Dante, although it's a strength I would love to hear anything regarding quads...and maybe some tris as well.

                            with you future because you are a damn beast on quads and are highly advanced i would probably have you do your favorite 3 exercises in your rotation

                            probably squats, hacks, and maybe panetta squat machine, or box squats, or front smythe squats or a different leg press than below --whatever you want to do for your 3rd exercise

                            and then i would make your widowmaker the best leg press in your gym

                            on squat day i would have you do the leg press for 20 reps
                            on hack day i would have you do it for 25 reps
                            and on the 3rd exercise (whichever you chose) i would have you do the leg press widowmaker for 30 reps

                            (and you have to beat those everytime they come up--and im talking as deep and full presses as you can safely do)

                            (knowing your power thats probably going to be about the weight of an African elephant)
