Kettlebell Eagle Loop deadlift

Posted in: Sport

I need to strengthen my back and legs for the heavier weights I'm working on. This got me thinking...

Kg Kettlebell Eagle Loop Deadlift

The red ones are 32kg, and the green ones are 24kg. (Total=112kg / 250lb / 17st9.) The blue straps are called Eagle Loops from Ironmind, designed to develop "talons of steel" or something like that.

Good for climbing training. Not that I'll be doing much of that any time soon... ;-)

This looks awesome dude, I have never come accross the eagle loop, I am really into my kettlebells and climbing though, where do you get the eagle loop from?

That is not a deadlift though - that is a static hold and a damn good one too. To do a deadlift with Eagle loops - you would need to be on a platform (like a step plat) as the ELoops are long and the weights need to clear the floor. Also your legs would not be spread for a dead lift - that would put your spinal erectors in prime position for injury. Try doing curls with ELoops - THAT is grip work you will not soon forget. BTW - for the above poster - ELoops are only sold at - they are about $40 shipped (not cheap ;-()
