    Thigh High Pickup

    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.

    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.
