    What do you feel you get from all the topend work? I personally think rack pulls are a waste of time, i would rather pull with a **** ton of chain weight. But i know alot of guys swear by them.

    Agreed...not sure what all that extra is for. I never do rack pulls, or half pulls, or anything like that. If I am training for deadlift...I deadlift, and that is about it.

    Today's DL workout

    225x10
    315x8
    405x6
    495x4
    585x3
    635x1
    405x11

    That was it...the rest of my workout was shoulders.

    I get a HUGE carryover from rack pulls. At knee (sometimes against bands) for lockout work, below knee for overall deadlift strength. Below knee rack pulls, GMs and SLDLs are my top 3 DL assistance exercises.

    Rack pulls in my opinion are important for CONSISTENT strength gains. If you have ever had trouble with strength gains then you will see a difference when you pull partials. Rack pulls push you beyond limits that you cannot reach with DL's.

    If your goal is strictly strength then these are for you. I promise if done right and with enough intensity they will push you beyond limits like never before

    My squat workout was suppose to be today but due to a flat tire it did not happen, however I will post what a tentative schedule of what I will do tommorrow:

    Squats (warm-up, 315x10, 405x6, 495x1, 575x1)
    Hack squat partials (405x10, 495,x6, 545x4)
    SLDL (405x6x3)
    Heavy step ups(120x10x3
    Leg curls(3x8, heavy)
    Hammer curls(3x10)
    skull crusher (3x10)
    Machine abs(100 as fast as possible decent heavy)

    Trust me these workouts will push you to the limits, but after you end the cycle drop back to a 6 week cycle doing heavy singles only and rep work on assistance lifts. You will see MASSIVE gains, it worked for me t will work for you!

    oh yeah and in the realm of strongman shoulders are important which means they deserve a full workout to themselves. HEAVY just like the back and legs! Nothing works like push presses as heavy as you can!

    Do they help you with your actual DL from the floor? I've observed mixed results in people with these in actually improving their competition DL, with probably more misses than hits.
    I'm not against rack pulls and I certainly see the usefullness for strongmen who may have to pull an 18" DL in competition. Any rack pulls I do are below the knee at least a couple inches since my weakness is the lower half of the DL.

    Yeah, i agree with the below the knee. Even these throw me out of form though. I have also done lockouts with 700 for sets of 12 and it is basicalliy a trap/upper back exercise that does too much CNS damage. Like i said, if i want to hit high end i will pull with 200lbs of chains, your form stays the same and they really can teach you to grind a deadlift out. But still, i know Goggins and i beleive Chuck V do heavy racks.

    Your deadlift is good. High racks are easy, you would be surprised what you can do with straps, but like i said, it is almost a power shrug.

    I am only probably around a 650-670 puller right now if i had to compete.

    As does Andy B, KK...the list goes on.
    I recently had a phase were my lockout stalled at my knees, did a 4 week mesocycle centered around heavy partial below and at my knee plus goodmornings, pullthroughs and boom..20kg PB

    If its your weakness, train it, if its not then dont bother..
