    One Arm Side Deadlift, does anyone do this exercise?

    Does anyone here do this exercise regularly?

    Video


    Lately, I've been interested in building a powerful thick waist and this exercise seems like a great way to do it.

    I've tried doing side bends with a 70 lb dumbell (that's the highest it goes in my gym) and it was too light for me so I was thinking if I should just do it with a bar instead. Would it be okay if I remove the leg movement in this exercise to focus more on my waist?

    Lastly, do you think it's a good alternative to weighted crunches?

    If you guys have other tips, feel free to post your ideas.

    How would removing the leg drive focus more on your waist? You'd use less weight...thus less work for your torso to not bend. This is also a good grip exercise, btw.

    Hold the DB over your head (not with a 70 though).

    i couldn't imagine going to a gym that only goes to 70 lbs in dumbells... that would suck.

    Suitcase deadlifts. Yes, I have done them from time to time. Great exercise. The point is to keep the upper body stable - so, if you're not going to use your legs, you might as well call them side bends..
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Well I don't necessarily think more weight = more growth, at least not all the time. But yea, I'll just do it the way it was originally intended to be done.
