Sumo High Pull (Any Good?)


@CT is this exercise any good? For some reason cross fit really likes it.


In theory it can be good. And if done in the short term it can be useful. But because of the narrow grip it can create a shoulder impingement (the snatch grip is much less likely to do that).


@CT could you just do the sumo high pull with a clean grip and get the benefits with less chance of shoulder injury?


*Sumo high pull with a clean grip


Even a clean grip can be hard on the shoulders. That’s why when I have people use a clean high pill now we stop at the bottom of the sternum (I once use the full ROM and found out that it can hurt the shoulder)


ty very much i guess itll be called sumo low pull with clean grip :slight_smile:
