Reverse Stiff Leg Deadlift?

Hello guys! Check out the second exercise this guy do in the video. You probably won’t understand what he is saying because it’s in portuguese, but he calls it a “reverse stiff leg deadlift” and says it’s good for people with pre-existent lower back problems or people whose lower back tire before hamstrings during stiff leg deadlifts.

Never seen these before, so I’m sharing with you.

(the bar is about one centimeter above the floor during the exercise)

I’m not getting the link right, how do I upload youtube videos??

That’s the spirit bro. I’m shure you know everything and have nothing else to learn about building legs.

yeah i said this^

I looked at all that guys leg training.

He’s got pretty huge legs when looking at them from that reverse deadlift angle, yet all he does is;

1). Leg press
2). Lying hamstring curl
3). Walking lunge
4). ‘Reverse deadlift’
5). Leg extension
6). ‘Single-legged sideways hack squat’

No conventional squats or deadlifts in there.

Perhaps he must have built his ‘base’ using the bilateral squats and deadlifts, then switched over to his current routine…?

I don’t see why you couldn’t build big legs with the exercises listed there

So he got his legs up to the size they are now (the ‘base’ I speak of) with bilateral squats and deadlifts, and then was genetically gifted enough to switch to his current leg routine without losing much leg mass?

I’m just speculating…

I heard Jay Cutler does 5x5 squats when not on camera

Dude I could seriously be 1000lbs Deadlifter using that exercise.

Anyone know how much weight is on the bar?
