We have called the SLDL a top priority auxiliary exercise for at least 15 years but have not really discussed it thoroughly for awhile. We do however explain our position in detail in our Auxiliary Video and have Stefan Fernholm demonstrate his SLDL technique. Stefan should be regarded as the fastest big man in athletic history as he ran a 4.3 forty many times weighing 270 pounds. <br>Thirty years ago when I was into competitive Power lifting my lower back would get quite sore, especially after contests. The regular Dead Lift was the third and final event which meant you went all out and hoped you d recover in a week or so. I discovered that the SLDL was, for me, a lifesaver. I went light at first and then just kept adding weight until I would do sets of five reps with 505 pounds. I kept my knees locked which worked the lower back muscles. I found that I could then do between 600 and 700 pounds in a contest and not suffer any low back pain. The only difficulty I had was the stress it put on the back of my knees. I tried the SLDL with my knees slightly bent like some lifters suggested but it did not seem to strengthen my lower back quite as well. What was my objective? To win the power lifting contest
