    I second the Supple Leopard book. Anybody doing any kind of lifting or dealing with mobility, back or other muscle problems should have a copy. Is that good.

    These are usually done with better machines or barbells, with the big 5 movements. You can do other stuff like dead lifts to complement, but don't try to do them in slow-mo.
