Sumo High Pull (Any Good?)


#1

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


#2

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).


#3

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


#4

*Sumo high pull with a clean grip


#5

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)
