Purpose of Exercise:
TO WORK THE LEG BICEPS.
This movement gives the maximum possible stretch to the leg biceps.

Execution:
Take hold of a barbell as for Deadlift and come up to a standing position.
Keep your legs locked and bend forward from the waist, you back straight, until your torso is about parallel to the floor, the bar hanging at arm’s length below you. Straighten up again, pull your shoulders back, and arch your spine to get the spinal erectors of the lower back to contract completely. Without your legs to help you as in regular Deadlifts, you will use much less weight doing this exercise. If you use Olympic weights, it is the best to stand on a block or a bench so that you can lower the weight to the maximum extent without the large end plates touching the floor.
