90 DAY CHALLENGE: THE DEADLIFT (MMA SPECIFIC DEADLIFT VARIATION WK 2,DAY 3)

23 May
  • Q) What is 90 day challenge?
  • A) 90 blog post aimed to teach you the basics of working out…. take the time to understand all 90 posts and you should be able to navigate your way through any gym

Today we will be looking at using the Deadlift as a conditioning tool; more specifically we will go over an exercise called the Sprawl Deadlift.

This exercise is especially beneficial to combat athletes (Wrestlers, MMA fighters etc) as it serves to be a conditioning tool and a sports specific movement.  I first learned about this move from the great strength and conditioning Coach Martin Rooney.

NOTE: This is an advanced movement… make sure your efficient at the Deadlift itself before trying this

The movement combines two separate exercises chained together

  1. Sprawl
  2. Deadlift
