Iron Asylum (soon to be Old School Iron) has a Zercher harness, I never used it, so I did today. Pretty damn hard. You can’t have much bend forward or even a shift unless you want the bar to careen off of the harness. Plus getting to parallel was hard with the bar in the bar since it holds it lower than if you were cradling it. I probably won’t do them again as I don’t see the point in this harness unless you have the mobility of a wet rock. A nice little tool, but I don’t see it being a tool in my arsenal.

I wanted to go heavier than 315 with these but the awkwardness of the harness prevented that for me.

Good workout today, been sticking to the cardio plan and trying to get my cardiovascular conditioning up to a level where I can actually live a longer life.
