When you miss a deadlift, do you fail near the floor? If so, try this.
The value in this exercise isn't so much that it makes an exercise hard, but that it forces you to:
- Better engage your lats to provide more stability to the spine.
- Learn to keep the bar close to the body and not allow it to get away.
- Build explosiveness through a sticking point.
It's the first two that are more important because they address a more important issue... a technique weakness!
