I know without a doubt this is superior way. I have done it both ways. The results, in my mind, are not even close. There is no danger to the lumbar spine area simply because of the very light weight involved. When we trained the Utah Jazz, the players really liked the feel of our method. They felt the SLDL was their second most favorite lift.<br>As far as endangerment to an athlete s spine with our method, our research shows that it is non-existent because of the light weight that is always used. Our BFS Clinicians have collectively trained perhaps as many as 20,000 student-athletes over the last ten years using our SLDL with zero problems. Our BFS SLDL is probably the safest lift we teach. The Hex Bar may be used on the SLDL to even further increase safety.<br> Those of you who have not tried our method, why not give it a shot with yourself and with some of your athletes? You should get some spectacular results. Thanks again to Coach Van De Zande for an 11-type inquiry. Good luck!<br><br><br><br><br>What about the Straight Leg Dead Lift Platform?<br><br>BFS suggests to begin doing Straight Leg Dead Lifts from the floor and then as athletes become more flexible, instead of increasing the weight, they can try it from a box or platform. This will allow athletes to get the maximum stretch possible which, according to Stefan, is the whole idea of this great auxiliary exercise that can be done quickly, in any weightroom with excellent results.<br><br><br>The BFS Straight Leg Dead Lift Platform is available from Bigger Faster Stronger for only $79. It is very solid and stable. It also is constructed of solid steel with a diamond tread top plate to prevent slipping. It is painted with a wrinkle black paint.g. <br> If you look at the gymnasts who compete at the junior Olympic level, continues Ayars,  the problems described in that book really don t take place with any greater frequency than they do in other sports. And if you look at college gymnastics, you re not going to see a bunch of emaciated little girls they re athletic, healthy-looking young women. Further, Ayars believes that all athletes can benefit from participating in the sport at some level.  It doesn t matter what sport somebody plays, gymnastic training will help them be a better all-around athlete. <br>The Sandhills Academy of Gymnastics offers a variety of gymnastic programs, holding classes for those as young as 16 months all the way up to competitive junior Olympic teams. They also have popular recreational and tumbling classes. Ayars says that gymnastics usually costs more than most other sports, which he attributes to a lack of support from taxpayers who are more willing to subsidize main-stream sports such as baseball.<br>Ayars is vocal on the subject of how public support affects gymnastics in this country:  Men s gymnastics has been hurting at the international level because it s really developed at the collegiate level, and over the past 10 to 12 years the college men s gymnastics program has really been gutted. At the last Olympics our teams didn t do too well, but since then our international women s teams have been doing much better. <pHh,cH ?0ZZEOq(pj~/[6yYQrѲȱFT;0_Q+_-*0_?C@G5| wP - ЃCQazOqӮfVGro_H9[]:ZZꈪ`+׃FGO/S/4sBvY*<ܥo#|iu_6"&i(JO5Ų*$X$?0Vbv¬3;jyYLL|9~.Cd{{)@ƕZzW^|GǵGj5;.A;NqHՉ4g\UZC5[y63EODbA+l_$~^ԍZ8vh? bYR6̫튧PeOSEn uk;_Q-=)ٗWl!hb&jEg" JH\YzK }:"} Xf%¡J_^ c~/yYʲ%?4jۮJ0%6f{Y,KuW)pX aaVՖ(!3p̱Kĭ U&wcR־=k;K{Y(ncxAߋS<-i$N.Ͼ5ڞwb%h'ln,.N-mTV'U-~, Z}gJ M2petoѼ'oj Yb4ODT S*}/IsyOFԴմv2/ CD\J7éj@N+xDaɑ/&Z $H7zEVR8j||pܬk?RuKhyPB 2gSΗ[ٝ2W{-Nt#,K c' ;qP㩮p~UJf$#ք # 6#y2*܂@T?*K=ͻY@(%7n_[&0HN rvDV\*ExL\ߛ}/?UkEcVs'}XyiPq̌^K&[y [#Y`#ⵝd~/籸MǸW$i_Yњ%2IyQ~$2s{ZD)@"]T_[f+QЩ-iOKGI,!C L|k*7>#`ԼXzyw*58HԦzخm5)&7nAn8v@.Wөx'u@2Tt|[qJnO|j9U *9ql @Ui>&ώlUV7 -jVXث Е^8W`._NJQ/9~_KZ|>SdR/kF+ >G,h~^U7/r\JRΏ7ogMy Pjڥ8#$Wwb qRZIk LjV:W(BM]f_H#ztۯ{bVIygy) FdGQ[BDŹ;k}[?jt_zus.*}gTKդU@$_G4%[ ܛI"$2As}C۟\*_O?mUߠ@W#zTupt{wnJlQ;` Zu>G`WsoOꕧb/CiO@n)׍
