The Mechanical OX

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

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.

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

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!
