Really? Because everywhere I read, it is a shoulder exercise… Even looking at it, I cannot fathom how I’m gonna use it to target my hamstrings. It will take me a while to the hang of the technique.
The only type of speed work I’ve done so far is high rep speed deadlifts to target the fast twitch muscles. Never done any running or jumping, or even Olympic lifts.
I actually have snatch-grip deadlifts on my Back + Biceps day, because I believe they target upper back more than legs.
Why not? I don’t do conventional deadlifts anymore to save my lower back. Which is why this exercise was split-up into two: a Quad dominant TBDL and a Hamstring-Glute dominant Sumo DL.
Oh man, I’ve never done any Olympic lifts, to be honest. It could take a while for me to learn the technique, let alone use those exercises to target my legs. Plus, I don’t think I will be able to to heavy weights with these exercises from the start, so I don’t think they’ll be effective for me.
Yes, that’s a good idea, I can do some heavy sled-pushing.
I am 22. Getting old, but still on the younger side. I will check out those programs you listed.
Thanks for the reply, much appreciated. I will see if this split works and adjust it accordingly with time.
