Well, ultimately the arc of the bar is going to be the same no matter what.
And the degree to which one’s force can be lengthwise (towards the unweighted end) is limited if, as I do, one is using for example a V-handle that is in no way physically attached to the bar.
But there is friction and so some force can be in that direction without the handle sliding.
It’s just an experimentation thing, noticing when it works and when it doesn’t, trying the pull differently.
Shorter guys can have more problems with this movement because being closer to the ground, their force applied can cause the back end of the bar to raise up as well.
Someone taller should actually find this easier to handle than that.
I don’t believe Dexter Jackson even uses 45lbs plates on these because it would reduce his overall range of motion.[/quote]
That makes sense. That’s partly what I mentioned earlier and what i experimented with today with the angle in which i have my body. I think previously my angle was too low and it caused the back end of the bar to come up.
