Hip Snatch Grip High Pull

Hi CT,

I was wondering what your thoughts were on the snatch grip high pull but performed from the hip for maximum upper back stimulation and power. I have seen videos of klokov performing them in this way and wondered what your thoughts were.

Many Thanks

The way he preforms them is actually a great hamstring/lower back builder moreso than an upper back builder. The upper back involvement will be similar to regular high pulls.
