· I love using this exercise with my wrestlers because it enforces a PROPER HINGE PATTERN in a movement that is similar to their sport. It teaches them how to SELF-ORGANIZE and handle large IMPULSES while maintaining strong body positioning. Also, the means of overload with this exercise is VELOCITY (due to gravity) causing it to have a higher transfer to sport performance.
