    Great odd lift for balance, grip, and multi-directional core work. Anti rotation exercise that should be a base exercise for trainees interested in all around strength as well as stability in their sport. This is a peculiar and may feel weird at first, but if you stick with it you will see a lot of progress towards your strength and even physique(obviously if the rest of your program is geared towards physique enhancement as well.)

    This exercise teaches total body tension(irradiation) and can help with grip issues concerning dropped dead lifts. Most easily used as a heavy exercise with lower reps, about 1-6. Keep the bar balanced and lower it gently. Practice with an arched back if you are a beginner. Advanced trainees will benefit from a flat back same guidelines as the conventional dead lift.

    Grip the barbell slightly off center, about half an inch in either direction. This helps with counter balance and is based on the current strength and use of your individual fingers.

    I would not replace the conventional dead lift with this one, however I would place more emphasis on this one in training depending on your goals.
