    I do them in the power rack. Last summer my goal was to lift past my body weight. I achieved it plus more. 135 for 15 reps x 3. May not seem like a lot of weight for most people, but pretty good for a 58 year old female!!

    I do rack pulls as an accessory movement after deadlifts. Usually set the pins at where ever my sticking point is in the deadlift. I'm really fast off the floor and sticking point is right above my knees. Really focusing on contracting the glutes and hip extension on rack pulls.

    Thanks for the input . Looks like I will keep doing them. Back is sore but no pain like deadlifts do me the day after.

    Sometimes after rack pulls I lighten the weight and do rack shrugs. Same way just shrug at the top. More like a power shrug.Traps sore next day guaranteed!

    Friday I finally tried rack pulls. Only did 135lb just to try it out but will be upping the weight next time. Went straight to shrugs afterwards. Nice little combination.

    Rack pulls are a better movement for back then deadlifts.

    Rack pulls are great. Especially when working to finish the top part of the deadlift. Are they as effective as a full deadlift? I don't think so but do feel like the same muscles are definitely worked. Also really depends on how high u start the bar. Rack pulls are definitely a great alternative though if previous injuries are a issue with performing a full range of motion. Who knows, stay at one height for a while and if all goes well and form stays strong move down to the next pin placement for the rack and so on, u may surprise urself and eventually get down to the floor gradually and over time.

I feel like they do a nice job working my posterior chain.
    Iíve had similar issues with back, I fractured lower spine few years ago and SI joint gives me trouble from time to time. Recently had x-ray to confirm.
    So my question is what are you doing to get those
    Massive legs of yours!??
    I would love to do deadís but I really donít wanna fuck myself up.
    What types of lifts would you recommend for lower half? Or should I just say fuck it and try deadlifts?

    You don't have to do deadlifts to develop big legs. If that were the case mine wouldn't be anything to speak of. I have two herniated discs that I've been working around since 1994. Luckily, the only movement I cannot do is deadlifts. Squats and leg presses never bothered me so I've pounded my legs with these movements over the years. Heavy compound movements in the 6-10 rep range have been the key to my leg growth.

    Hell yea love love i can focus more on my back then full deads. Wide grip weighted pull ups, rack pulls, bb rows ,and close grip rows have done gteat for me. I wanted to add size and went to the basics and put on 24 pounds . rack pulls are a great movement
