What is the difference, in regards to training effect of rack pulls versus full deads?[/quote]
Deadlifts are primarily a leg/glute exercise with a little back involvment
Rack pulls (from 1-2" below the knee, depending on limb length) is a lower back exercise with a little upper back involvement and some glute activation.
Do the rack pulls later in the workout. There are other exercises that are more important and effective for back development than rack pulls. You want to be fresh for those movements to get the most out of them. Doin rack pulls later in the workout will also allow you to use less weight and still get the stimulation. [/quote]
That’s what I figured.
Rack pulls take the hams/glutes/quads out of the lift and make it more of a pure back exercise, which is what I’m looking for.
