Try to imagine this. Get in a squat rack. Put the safety pins at a little over knee height like you’re going to do a rack lockout. Now, put the bar on the floor, UNDER the pins. Put some weight on it, and pull it so it hits the underside of the two bars. Once there, keep on trying to pull anyway. Idea being, like I said, to teach yourself to keep on a-pullin’ even when the bar isn’t a-movin’. It was in an article here on T-Mag some time ago.[/quote]
isotonic-isometric deadlift, this technique can be used on a lot of lifts- ive tried it with bench, dead, and squat- the point is to exert maximum intensity on an immovable load, but moving the bar a short distance before hitting that point (the pins). I think I read about them on the starting strength site in an article by bill starr. I havnt kept them in my regular routine but did like them when i used them, just something different.
