absolutely. It is very hip dominant and resembles a good morning. Usually I have a 'rest' with the bar on the thigh. It is that I just lately use a rack, and formerly I always deadlifted the bar up then you have to get into the zercher position and tense up again. The first movement is the butt going up and knee extension and upper body going down. It is then when the hamstrings are about parallel when the hips and back are fully loaded when hips, knees and upper body extend simultaneously.Strong work.
Your zercher squat has a lot more bend at the hip than I've seen before. Is that a conscious choice?
