A whole session to find your MAX on a couple of these:
Fat Bar Deadlift
Fat Bar Clean & Jerk
Trap Bar Deadlift
Dead Ball Toss Over Shoulder
Had a go at a couple that I’d never tried before and have been wanting to.
Was really curious about the Trap Bar Deadlift and if I would lift any different to a normal Deadlift. I managed 160kg reasonably comfortably. I was somewhat surprised.
Next I tried the Log. Which on it’s own weighs 40kg. You deadlift it up, then hunch over the Log and use a bit of a hip thrust to roll the Log up your chest to your shoulders as you straighten out. Not a Clean! You can’t let it leave your body. Then you press out from there. Maxed out at 70kg. Really awkward movement.
Tried the sled pull last and only got to 60kg (excluding sled weight) before running out of time. This is so much harder than it looks too. Really have to get low and almost crawl to get it moving. Have to make sure to maintain a steady pace too so you aren’t jerking the weight because that throws you off balance a bit. Also really have to make sure you maintain a straight line, because any deviation just loses momentum and you’ll find yourself wandering off to the side in no time!
Whilst waiting for the sled pull, I had a go at the Dead Balls. Managed 65kg with not much fuss, but the 75kg was horrendous. Got it into the hip crease to try and roll it out over the shoulder, but just couldn’t quite get there. Really awkward.
