“Hang Pulls” are a great two foot exercise that can be done with a good amount of weight (if your strong enough) due to its limited range of motion. Make sure you have good alignment; shoulder blades back, knuckles down, back set, knees bent (jumping position), and drive the bar up, finishing with a shrug. You can leave the ground if you are doing moderate weight but, due to the limited range of motion with this exercise you should be doing 1x or 1.5x your body weight for 4 sets at 6 reps. This exercise will also strengthen the 2nd pull in the “Power Clean” a very important exercise for any athlete. Thanks for stopping by, create a great day! -Coach T
