Strength: SDLHP (Sumo Deadlift High Pull)

Last week we worked on the Sumo Deadlift, while this week we add the high pull.

The sumo deadlift high pull builds on the deadlift by introducing powerful hip extension to the movement. Often misinterpreted as a shoulder exercise, the high pull is a core-to-extremity movement that derives the bulk of its power from the posterior chain. The arms and shoulders are used only as follow-through movements.

With a stance wider than shoulder width, the athlete will take a narrow grip on the bar. The back will be arched. The athlete will accelerate the bar with the hips, shrugging only after the hips are fully extended, and bending the arms only after the shrug. The elbows will move high and outside, and the bar will travel to just below the chin before returning to the hang position.  (The CrossFit Journal)
