Anyone here do thigh high pickups?

I did them today for the first time and got 765 up (8 plates a side) without too much difficulty.

no, ive read that anything that high is pretty useless.

I haven't done them in a very long time - could be a good way to overload your CNS though and handle some heavy loads. I would try to do them from just above your knee so that there is a bit more range of motion and carryover.

Probably good for grip work.
