  • cable pull throughs for hams????

    Hey dudes

    just wondering if anyone has any experience with cable pull through?

    Could they be used in dc training? Probly rp and not ss.

    Would they be good enough to add development for the hams?

      I believe cable pull throughs would be a bit taxing on your lower back so better to ss those for safety, also better done on a day you are doing hacks or leg presses, for the same reason.

        My lower back seems to be made of cast iron now Haha so i may be fine.

        Plus i was thinking i would stack the machine very quickly if i did them for a lower rep range done ss.

          Do you rest pause stiff leg deads, rack pulls or deadliest with your cast iron lower back?

          You're fine until you hurt yourself...

            Pull Thrus are fine for hams as long as you keep a stiff leg throughout but I would straight set it.

              I use the shit out of pull throughs. I have always done ss with them but I still use a controlled negative, although I am not using heavy weight at all when I do them.

                I have not done pull throughs before and just thought it being a cable exercise...it would have to be done rp rather than ss.

                Not like you can match 6plates per side on a cable pully.

                I'll try it out ss though and see how i get on.
                I was just thinking it wouldn't last a blast long enough.

                I guess ya gotta do what ya do on lat pulldowns huh?...add pauses....really slow everything down etc..

                  I understand what your saying about not being able to use a lot of weight. That could be one reason for leaving them out. or you could slow your cadence down. One thing I will respectfully disagree with is that you should do these with a straight leg to target the hamstring. Here is an alternative way that might help you feel these better:

                  Start standing with a wider than shoulder width stand, then slowly lower the handle between your legs. Stay tight, but allow a slight bend in the knees. When you come up, start to straighten your legs at about the halfway point using your hams. At the same time squeeze your glutes to complete the movement. It's difficult for a lot of people to make the hams work on "stiff" legged exercises, but this is another reason to slow the cadence down and concentrate on the muscle. Try it and let me know what you think.

                    Hey doberman. That is exactly the way i tried them...with the slightly bent knees. Feels pretty good but i should probable keep them slo mo style.
