  • Racked pulls?

    Hey!

    Could someone please describe to me exactly what racked pulls are This has probably been asked before, but I couldn`t find anything on the subject. Thanks

    TTBOMK(to the best of my knowledge) from Dante:

    How to do rack deadlifts: In a power rack, safety bars at knee level (your pulling from knee level)--keep your back arched or at least flat the entire movement (not rounded at all)--if your back starts rounding, its time to end the set or your using too much weight. Personally I pull with an overhand and underhand
    deadlift grip and with my arms perfectly straight, try to pull my shoulders up and back at the top. I then do about a 4-5 second negative down but I wouldn’t suggest that to others unless I can show how to do it. (I keep locked---my back arched and knees slightly bent and lower it)..It kind of takes a little getting used
    too.

    Most back thickness movements are one straight set but something like rack or floor deadlifts I have them do 2 work sets --one for a 8 and one slightly heavier for a 4--(this is all after warmup sets of course)



    Jim: this might be from a while ago, but it might still be dead on?!
    ain't it the shit? Just wait til you guys/gals see some of the strength jumps lol..and the size you put on!
    Good luck

        By the way, I forgot to ask. Rack chins is it the same as ordinary chins? If not, what`s the difference and how do I perform them?

        (please exuse me for asking stupid questions, I`m not so familiar with the names on every exercise when written in english). :2guns: oh just shoot me...
