High Pull, How High?

How far should the bar travel on the high pull? Should it go to you chin level or rib/nipple level?

personnally, i go as heavy as i can, while still getting around shoulder level
-(if you’re doing snatch grip)if you go a bit to high, it feels like you should just compete the motion…and you should be able to use more weight than you can catch in theory, so go a bit heavier

Snatch high pull: To the height your nipples are at when you’re standing straight up.

Clean high pull: To the height of your navel when you’re standing straight up.

I go as high as the sternum keeping the bar as close to my body as possible.
