Deadlift To High Pull – Band

  • HOW: Start in a wide stance standing position. Have a band anchored under both feet. Hinge at your hips and lower down into the bottom of a deadlift, grab the band with both hands then drive your feet through the ground to stand tall. As you stand tall, simultaneously pull the band up similar to performing a high pull. Return to the starting position and repeat.
  • FEEL: This will feel like a full body workout depending on how much tension you have on the band. At the bottom of the deadlift in this video, there was slack on the band, thus it felt more like an upper body workout as the high pull was harder with tension on the band.
  • COMPENSATION: All of the same rules apply with your traditional deadlift and high pull, perform the exercise by hip hinging as much as you can while keeping your chest up and sinking your hips down into the bottom position. With the high pull, drive your elbows straight out to the sides and have your forearms parallel to the ground in the finished position. Drive the pull through your lower body as well.
