Isometric Deadlifts

Post by Kenny Croxdale » Mon Jan 18, 2010 9:38 am

Here's a great exercise.

Carl Dietz's Isometric Deadlifts. http://stacktv.stack.com/video.aspx?vid ... 369962_364

As per Dietz:

1) One leg places less spinal loading compared to the use of both legs.

2) The Isometric Deadlift will increase strength out of the bottom position.

Isn't it more an isometric split squat?

Some of the logic behind it appears earily familiar...

Isometric Bulgarian! He says to keep the shoulders, hips and bar in a straight line. Probably impossible. The guy in the videos certainly has his hips well back from the shoulder-bar plane. It looks like a useful exercise, but I always get suspicious when I here someone say "this is the best exercise...." Probably much more supportable just to say it's a good one.
