Deadlift day at OTG Athletic.

79kg Tomas Inch Replica Dumbbell just arrived at OTG Athletic, With Compliments Terence Mitchell - Strength Coach at OTG

The one arm dumbbell sumo deadlift. Using good deadlift form, bend down and pick it up with one arm. This is yet another classic full-body movement that's been forgotten by the new generation of gym rats. That's too bad because the one-arm deadlift will hit your muscles in ways no other exercise can match. Not only will it work your legs, traps and shoulders, it will also make your torso rock hard as it trains the obliques and other deep back and abdominal muscles.

A great addition to your strength training to develop explosive strength is the use of Accommodated resistance training, we have used chains here for the tricep extension as it has great effect on the intermuscular coordination because of the ability of the stabilizers, neutralizers, agonists, and antagonists to work together. The use of the chains has to do with the force velocity curve. A very simple definition of this would be "the more velocity developed, the less force needed to move the object." If you lift a weight with great speed, the less force is needed to complete the lift. We've added in the use of grip balls to strengthen the hands, wrists and forearms.
