hey guys I had a few questions about rack pulls, I think i know the answer to most but I thought I would make sure.
1-when doing rack pulls where do most people start, at or below knee level and whats the diffrence.
2-do you contract and squeeze the glutes at the top like in conventional deads?
3- would you classify this as a lower back or back thickening excersises in a back program?
Everybody’s different and you could start whereever you like.(as long as its around the general knee area)
I would recommend starting above and then a few weeks later moving it down a pin.
i don’t even bother thinking about it. i focus on using my back and hams to move as much weight as possible.
its mostly working the erectors, but if i had to choose i guess i would say thickening. i have never split my routine in that way.
for your info i used over six hundred pounds for rack pulls and i can do 405 for a triple, easy, in a conventional dead.
