How to perform Rack and Block pulls


This video will address a common problem when performing rack pulls. Typically, this exercise is performed as an accessory to Olympic lifts or the deadlift in powerlifting. However, when many people perform it they position themselves incorrectly. With a little thought and self analysis you can more accurately start in the position you are trying to improve on. The point of accessory exercises it to work on weak points in the lift but this won’t work if you aren’t in the proper position to start with.
