Shovelglove legs exercises – Quadriceps (side)

Here you'll find a discussion thread for each of the canonical and major non-canonical shovelglove moves. If you have questions or comments about any of these moves, just update the existing discussion for it. If you have a new move, add a new discussion (preferably with the name of your new move in the title). Ideally there will be just one discussion thread per move that everyone adds to, but it's no tragedy if a little bit of redundancy creeps in.

Shovelglove legs exercises – Quadriceps (side)

Post by filipe » Thu Mar 24, 2011 1:22 pm

I've been using this for the last 2-3 months to increase my legs strength, and it works for me.
:?: I don't recall seeing this anywhere (I didn't spent much time browsing the forum...). If it already exist, forget this.

:idea: Principles:
Keep your back straight.
Keep your elbow angle steady, in order to let the lower back and legs muscles do the job.
Rise the sledgehammer in simultaneous with the the legs straighten. Both movements (legs and shoulders) should begin and end simultaneously.

:!: Caution: If you have issues with knees, it's better not to start at all.


:wink: Comments, critics, improvements, are welcome.
