    What's the point in pulling out of a rack on the box? The purpose of those rack pulls are for top end work if I recall

    Good stuff! Any reason you don't just do it off the floor if the box makes it equal to the floor?

    Thanx Travis yeah this is at another gym that was way too crowded so i just did them in the rack that day.And at first i was just going to do them out of the lowest pin in the rack then i just decided to do them off the box instead to replicate pulling off the floor instead.

    Right, but all you have to do is just put the bar outside the rack, in the front. Plus that way you don't bend the pins when you come down. Just tryin to understand what you're shootin for here.

    Agree with this. Straps, for a powerlifter tend to more handicap you than enable you.

    Gotcha yeah ill probally do that next time.I started using the straps recently again after i seen that ano turitan guy tear his bicep. From what i read doing double overhand is a little easier on the biceps then over under.

    What is your max pull from the floor?

    I would say what you did is good for an ME type movement, but definitely doesn't duplicate pulling off the floor. I'd say that was a few inches up, plus it comes off the pins differently than it does off the floor. I'd be willing to bet you bent the pins and the bar on that bounce, lol.

    Also, are you going to compete? If so I would make sure to work on a smoother lockout(no hitch). You are definitely bull strong, just need to clean it up a bit.

    Yea your right actually i only started hicthing once i started out of the rack IDK it throws off my normal form off the floor. i never hitch off the floor, it seems like im quicker and have more leg drive from the floor.And yeah after seeing Ano's injury it kind of made me a little nervous, and i read the double over hand grip is safer so i started doing that a lot more instead thanx for the post take care.

    Dude, that 2nd pull, even though it was a "touch and go" type thing, went up ridiculously easy. That was impressive!

    do heavy rows and bicep work and you won't have to worry about tearing a bicep.

    the hitching could either be an upper back weakness or just a form problem.

    Thanx man,Yeah bicep work from what i read is what helps prevent tears in your biceps From heavy Deadlifting.They are very important in that respect so thats why im starting to do them again myself.And also man im the same as you or the next guy trying to break a 300 Lbs Deadlift.I accept all advice and i respect everyones views and opinions on lifting technique etc... The way i look at it is you always have to be humble thats how you learn,the day you start acting like you know everything is the day you stop making progress.Thanx again for the advice.

    Nice pulling. One plus of pulling off that box/pins is it probably makes it a hell of a lot easier to load and unload plates.

    i think what causes bicep tears is when someone starts to hitch a deadlift and puts all the force on the bicep. I'm not really convinced some curls are going to solve the problem, it seems like more of a form issue.

    I use straps in training somtimes as it allows me to use a little better deadlift form constantly as ive noticed sometimes when I do reps with a mixed grip I twist - singles is fine though. mind you, i have ridiculous sized hands and grip problem has never really been an issue for me, other then on skinny deadlift bars where my hand is to big for the bar so i end up ripping my hands open.

    you got some strength there, nice work.

    Thanx for the response Selk i think the reason he was talking about curl's, is because i know when you pull your biceps get involved a lot.

    So i think he was thinking that maybe by strengthing up the biceps, it may help to lessen the chance of a tear, which i can see his point of view.

    It wont totally eliminate the risk but it will significantly reduce the risk.
