In the 70s and 80s very much the norm.

It's a movement I really, really hope makes a comeback.

I know Damminga and his kid do stiff legs from pins, about mid-shin, with tons and tons of chain.

I'm too lazy for the chain part.

The list of people who've done, and do, stiff legs as a main movement for the 1st half of a cycle is pretty small.

Kuc, Kazmaier, Lilliebridge...

Why did it fall in disuse?

It seems like a nice way to pull from the floor frequently in a less taxing way.

Think it got to be a much too strict straight leg. Like in the video you just set the hips higher. As i got older i found just pulling off blocks was enough.

Or you could split the difference and do RDL's out of a rack. For many peeps, that's not that far off an SLDL but with a less extreme ROM that can get ugly if you're not very focused. The nice thing about blocks is they require your full attention and they can be done heavy. The nice thin g about RDL's is they reinforce good mechanics and you can get a lot out of a modest weight..

Are we talking a hybrid'ish RDL/SLDL?

Or a very strict RDL?

Can you clarify, with reference to human movement and kinesiology?
