Some folks swear by them but unless I find myself in prison, they are not for me.

Not as much as more deadlifting and regular squatting. But they help develop the primary movers in those lifts, so sure, they do help. Years ago, I used to do them all the time, and my lifts were going up. I stopped doing them, and my lifts kept going up. That’s not the only factor of my training that changed, so I can’t quantify how much Zerchers were helping. This is just my experience with them.

Now I can see the video. Wow. That looks ridiculously painful. But it also looks like great functional strength.
