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?

The straddle lift is worth a try. I would go moderate weight, 12-15 reps per set. You can do them the old school way, or with a squat belt like this:

Any hints at proper Technique (Green was a little short on Detail)?
I have only tried them once. I would post a thread and ask other members for tips. You're sure to get some good advice.

What do you think of Pull-Overs?

Can they really Expand The Rib Cage, or is that an old fable?
Here's a thread on the topic:

I've never tried them much myself.
