Here’s a handy guide to rack pulling so you don’t bend the barbell in the gym and everyone hates you. How to execute a rack pull without bending the barbell or ruining all the gym equipment like an asshole so others can use it demonstrated with 855x2 guide. 🗡Step 1- if in a commercial gym setting walk around the entire gym and try to find an empty barbell that is not bent in half by previous assholes. (Warning, this May be impossible.) 🗡Step 2- once half wrecked bar is selected you will now have to find a squat rack that is not being used for curls. (Also May be impossible in a commercial gym setting, if you go to Planet fitness then disregard any further reading because all the items previously listed are only a myth you once heard of). 🗡Step 3- set safety catches up in squat rack so that the starting position of the barbell is at or below your knee height so that you have at least some kind of carryover from this movement. 🗡Step 4- begin loading weight onto the barbell that you Intend to do work with. (This does not count as your deadlift max as some claim.) 🗡Step 5- pull the weight from the starting point until your hips are fully locked forward and shoulders are back allowing you to stand fully erect with the weight. 🗡Step 6- lower the weight back down to the safety catches at the starting position controlling the negative or “eccentric” part of the motion. Do this without slamming the barbell into the pins with your 315 lbs trying to look like a badass and fucking up the bar permanently. (Demo Video with 855x2 attached). 🗡Step 7- strip all weights from barbell and return all pieces of equipment to their appropriate storage place. ( If you are a member of a commercial gym it is cool to just leave it all loaded and walk away so that a smaller or weaker Person has to walk up in amazement to see what you’ve done then proceed to clean up after you in order to actually use the equipment.) If you go to Planet Fitness please again disregard the entire post because these items do not exist in the gym and you have no idea what this is.
