This is a client who has gotten up into the 250-300lb working range for Hatfield BSS, here doing his finisher set at 250. I now have three people knocking on 300’s door. It’s fascinating to see how transformative this particular movement is. At first, I find that people are just working hard to feel stable at all with the yoke bar, or even just being on one foot, then fighting to balance once they take their hands off the yoke bar handles. Subsequently, however, once they learn trust, they explode with power and stability.
Between this exercise, bottom-up dumbbell split stance, and sissy squat, if you don’t yet have them incorporated into your program, figure it out. IT WILL BE WORTH IT.
