Zercher DL


Level 3 Valued Member
5 foot 8 inches, 165 pounds.  Just tried zercher squat for the first time for fun, got 3x5x135, it was hard but I can definitely up the weight... What are some respectable numbers I can aim for and keep in mind?

Also, I finally got around to trying the zercher DL, 2x135, I'm not sure it felt good and not sure when I'll do that one again.

Daniel, here's a thread from not too long ago about the Zercher DL.



For some reason, my YouTube links aren't showing up for me, so here they are separately

Hope that's helpful to you.  Please feel free to post a video of yourself doing this if you want some feedback on your form.

Steve, I've known of the zercher squat for a while, but it was your thread that went a long ways to inspiring me to try the zercher dl!
