Sumo Deadlift High Pull

Back To Technique

• Stance = wider than shoulder width, but not so wide that the knees roll inside the feet

• Weight in heels

• Back arched/lumbar curve locked in

• Shoulders slightly in front of the bar

• Bar in contact with the shins

• Arms locked straight

• Symmetrical grip inside the knees

• Accelerate through the heels from the ground to full extension of the hips and legs

• Shrug, with straight arms

• Arms follow through by pulling bar to the chin with elbows high and outside

• Return the bar down fluidly in the reverse sequence: arms, then traps, then hips, then knees, back to the setup position
