The Mechanical OX


#1

now you can push and pull at the same time

or you can do it with free weights


(he talks in kilograms not pounds so he is )

im gonna give this a go with my safety squat bar and farmers walk handles


#2

Here's one where I guy uses bands

Either way, I doubt I'd do it because I'd be paranoid about the bar falling off my back.


#3

interesting. never seen that machine before. would love to try that someday


#4

In fairness now, and I'm not trying to be a dick, do you not think there's other lifts you could work harder on that might have a carryover to increased strength better?

I've no doubt of the quality of the machine, and Ox is a beast, but I think it's another one of those bandwagons people are going to jump on without stepping back and exploring all the options!
