Cool

Okay, I have a couple or three Questions for you:

"Straddle Lifts" or "Jefferson Lift"...

I've seen a couple of Huge Strongman Types attempt this for Heavy Singles.

It looks like a Deadlift done with One Leg over the Bar simply to be Arbitrary.

Then I saw Kai Green doing them on a Tutorial.

{Yes, I'm fully aware that he's a Bodybuilder and not a Strength Athlete.}

It took me back to when I was 14 years old and did Straddle Lifts in my Garage Gym.

It looks as if, the way Kai does them, they are very heavy on Quad, Hamstring and Glute with a minimum of Erector involvement.

Any thoughts on the Straddle Lift—done as an Actual Straddle Lift—to relatively High Reps—say 8–12 or even 15—as a Squat or Deadlift Assistance Exercise?

Any hints at proper Technique (Green was a little short on Detail)?

I'm big on the idea that a Demonstration is not an Explanation.

Second,

What do you think of Pull-Overs?

Can they really Expand The Rib Cage, or is that an old fable?

Third,

This is just a Phun Question,

But,

What well-known Lifter and/or Strongman active today, Is the Closest in Physique and Training Methods to Paul Anderson at his Prime?

Undoubtedly I'll think up more Questions as time goes on along.
