usually i am not a fan of naming exercises after athletes, but “round back deficit snatch grip deadlift row” is just too long. this hits the lats and rhomboids a lot, try bending over like that with a 20kg on each side and let it pull your back muscles. disclaimer: as rob notes in his post a lot of you will probably try this variation and i can’t blame you. lu is only using 90kg, so around 50% of his best snatch. it would be nice to have a few more frames on the sequence to tell. it looks like he pauses at the top contracting the lower traps pushing the bar into the hips. looks like another exercise to strengthen the back without using any leg power. works lower back without the need of much weight on the bar.
maybe the top part of the pull is for trap development (combo exercise). funny thing that came to my mind after watching: i love it how we are seriously discussing the exercise just because lu is doing them. this hits the lats and rhomboids a lot, try bending over like that with a 45 on each side and let it pull your back muscles. a coach might be a good idea for these if you are snatching for competition but i’m going to replace regular shrugs with these for 12 weeks and see what happens. i personally saw a guy at one of the gyms i go to try a wtf-to-sots, fall behind with the bar and (i don’t even know how he managed that) break a tooth in the process. only thing i regret is not having a camera on me at the time! having said that, it is a potentially useful exercise when you are very experient and know what you’re doing. as long as you stick to 30-40kg it looks like a pretty nice exercise that both works the back muscles and reinforces keeping the bar close throughout the pull upright partial shrug-row already exists, generall called a kirk shrug in honor of kirk karwoski who did a crapton of them: -nation.com/forum_images/2/a/2a58c_orig-kirkkarwoski.jpg. so this is basically a roundback snatch-grip kirk power shrug/power kirk shrug :p cool exercise thanks for posting… true story i tried these last night with 95# and blew my low back out.
