Hey guys, just here to ask some of the powerlifters what you guys do for the initial pull on the deadlift.
Ive dropped conventional deads for a couple months and replaced it with rack pulls and my numbers increased quite significantly. The only thing I’m having a problem with is the first part of the lift, getting it off the ground. I feel if I can get it off the ground, I can lock it out eventually as I never missed a lift on the lockout.
And for the squats, I’m currently doing box squats and loving it. Just to get a better understanding, you are supposed to sit and stop at the bottom then explode up right? I also feel it more on my hamstrings more so than on the quads.
Thanks for any input.
