These pulls are how Ive grown a farely hefty set of traps.

Whats the thought on westside guys using them for DE work?

Becasue hook grip makes your thumbs beed and bruise... so we just use straps for the pulls.

will that not hinder your grip when it comes to competition? obviouslky your coach knows what hes talking about, but im just wondering.

how much weight is on that bar anyway man? fast pulling!

He's an olympic lifter, and power movements aren't as effective as explosive ones..?

The Oly Pull mimics his clean technique. It's an explosive movement that really gets the lifter to shrug the weight instead of trying to pull it up with his arms.

It also has a fast eccentric jerk/drop, particularly with a hang clean which has this at both the beginning of the movement, and also when you drop the weight back down to do another clean. My traps, delts and forearms blew up (in their cute little girlie ways) when I started doing cleans.

Using the straps doesnt hinder our grip in anyway.... we still have a session of clean and snatches before that.

Its only a measley 100kg, its meant to be your PB lift + 20 but Im stil trying to get the form. Ive actually cleaned heavier than this.
