I love this exercise. I first tried it long time ago when Coach Davies had it in one his programs and have been doing it more or less ever since.
Four reasons why it’s my favourite exercise:
Hits the upper back and medial delts hard and in a kind of unique way. (try to lower the beginning of the eccentric phase under control. Good for medial delts)
Hits the posterior chain without frying the nervous system
Is good for posture
Is fun to do
If you haven?t tried it yet I urge you to do so. You won?t regret it!
