Whats the difference for you from your rack deadlift to your actual deadlift? With the bar being slightly above your knee?
I have not deadlifted in a while-focus has been squats, primarily front squat- but decided to mess around with rack pulls after my workout of intense meso for front squat. The goal was to work on my grip strength. Started just doing some overhand grip-no hook- went up to 500lb got it once, but hands were little sore and missed 2 after that. Decided to see what could do with mixed grip so loaded 600, got that easy then went for 685 and that was tough but got it.
These were done slightly above knee, never did them before today though. Just curious what the difference would be from my regular deadlift, I’m guessing over 100lb difference easily.
Also did I do these wrong? Are they supposed to be done below knee, at the knee or above? I’m guessing they are like box squats and you work sticking points though.
