I have two questions relating to specific lifts. First is about the deadlift variation, the split leg deadlift. For those that don’t know what it is, it’s a dead with the lifter straddling the bar. My question is: is this lift safe? (assuming good form is kept of course) It seems as if it would put a ton of pressure on the knees.
Secondly is on wood choppers. What exactly is a wood chopper? Does it have another name more commonly used? I looked it up and couldn’t find anything helpful.
