    The lifter doing the “deficit” RDLs was doing them with normal ROM, but was standing on a couple of plates, one of them a bumper plate.

    This is pretty common in China. A friend of mine asked someone why they chose to load five tens on a bar instead of using the big plates, and he essentially said, “It feels cooler this way.” Fair enough.

    I’ve actually never seen this before. How would that even work?

    All the guys at my gym upright row with the curl bar. You can’t load upright rows too heavy, so it’s a good way to get some plates on it and feel cool.

    Again, how? Had they tied knots?

    Yeah, I actually saw the same thing and made a post about it a little while back. Adam Skillin replies, and I guess this is something legitimately strong people do sometimes to get a little extra range of motion on their RDLs, and then all our friends at the gym go to copy it.

    Glad to see this thread making a comeback. I’m going to try to figure out how to attach a bar to the cable station between my sets tomorrow.

    That was the confusing part, even though she was standing on plates, there was no added ROM. Just an RDL while standing on plates.
