EDIT: Video now available for your viewing pleasures.


Another repost from the olden days:

"Start the mower" (which is a bit modern, so you could just as easily call it "pulling weeds" if you like) occurred to me last weekend while starting my weed eater, which is always a trial and usually involves some harsh language.

Basically it's a rear deltoid row - I go down on one knee, bend forward slightly and pull the SG back as if pulling the rip cord on my weed eater, but note how the arm doesn't come back alongside the body like with a standard bent-over row (although I suppose you could do it that way if you wanted to). I was thinking this morning (post-workout, unfortunately) that if you straightened your elbow at the peak of the backward motion you'd get some nice tricep recruitment (kind of like a kick-back, I guess) and you could say you were "tossing the weeds" as you "pull" them. Haven't tried it yet, but I'll play around with and let y'all know.

Edit: Upon further research, I think it would probably be better to do the standard bent-over row - it involved all the same muscles as the other verison, plus several others.

Cool! Thanks. Both images are very clear (the links help too). "Pull weeds" is more traditional, but the dear old mower should get some credit as the source of your inspiration.

Don't tell, but I'm using an electric weed trimmer now. No more starter cord!! Sshhhh!
>_>

<_<

I still have the trusty (and rusty) old push-reel mower for the main bit, though. Wink
