Let’s talk about Rack pull deadlifts
Rack pulls are a deadlift going from above the knee, much shorter range in motion then a regular deadlift , but serious benefits.
Rack pulls work the whole back, and the posterior chain(Glutes ,hamstrings)and forearms like a motherfucker! You can put on serious weight , it will also help with your deadlift extension lockout at the top of the movement
It will help you develop a thicker back if you do them regularly.
Since it is such a short range in motion compared to a full deadlift, it is a lot less stress on your central nervous system
I started doing rack pulls when i was working with my strength coach @itsbenmehl and have tried to incorporate them since. ben knows his shit, so i decided to learn more about them and try to add them into my routines , at least occasionally
These videos are a series of rack pulls ending in a barely executed 475lb at the end, i didn’t hold long enough in my opinion so I’m not counting it , but adding into the video to show when you miss a lift too. Can’t all be perfect executed reps,.. people fail sometimes, it’s ok. (**Note- this is slightly higher then above knee cause the rack wouldn’t go lower, problems with being tall!,. Also i usually don’t wear gloves, but had to put one on the left hand cause it was cut already, i mention because i don’t like to wear bitch-mittens)
