I’m sorry if an idea like this has been posted, i’ve never read about it.I was thinking about DB Squats (a kid in BB forum mentioned them), and wondered if this would be a practical idea.
You squat with a heavy DB in each hand(this won’t work if your rack only goes to 70’s), and as you reach the bottom of the lift, you shrug up your shoulders and pull the weight upwards in a way resembling a BB row before beginning your ascent.
Seems to me like you’d work quads, traps, lats, and grip, assuming you didn’t use straps and did at least a moderately long set.
I understand that for the bigger/stronger guys this is impractical, because most gyms don’t have dbs up to 200’s (though some lucky people’s do), but i think it’s worth a try. I’ll prolly try it in my evening workout tomorrow.
No worries of getting stuck at the bottom, you can just drop the dumbells.
