Here is Oxana Slivenko doing some Deficit Romanian Deadlifts.
Notice her form. Her flexibility allows her to have enough hip flexion to maintain a tight back throughout the entire range of motion. So don’t try unless your body is ready for it.
This looks like it is from around the same time she did her 200kg x2 Squat.
Here is how you can build your own DIY T-Handle.
Update: Here is Apti Aukhadov doing his set
And of course these are not done only in Russia. Here is Fernando Reis doing his set.
Great exercise for strengthening the lower back and the back of the legs.
Konstantins uses the same piece of equipment but with more knee flexion in this video (1:38): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCuTId4t99E&t=1m39s
That is some serious flexibility.
Yeah, you better have the Pancake Stretch down before attempting this.
I just googled that. My heart sunk a bit.
Her body is ready…
Klokov would love these, works grip and is a stiffleg deadlift which he’s doing all the time anyway
if he could fit enough weight on.. hehe
