Hmmmm....So I'm clueless here... What's the primary muscle worked with a standard deadlift? I always feel it in my mid-lower back, as well as some good tightness all over as needed to deadlift. I would think using a TB would prevent RDLs, because you're not bending so far forward as you said, but this is almost a squat/deadlift hybrid....

Edit: Just read you saying it was a hybrid type of move...

Still hmmm... I don't have one at either gym I could use. They both say the HS Shrug machine is better, but if that thing is not bolted down it moves on lift off...
