    I have these on my new plan... not sure I'm doing it right.
    Is there a video around I don't know about?
    I can set pins just below or at top of my knee.
    How far apart do you place your hands?
    Can you used a mixed grip?

    PS

    On the LBC exercise demos, see hip dom, Snatch grip DL for a visual.. realizing these are off the pins (rack pulls) vs the floor.

    Hope that helps. :)

    A good comment by Eric Cressey

    1. You get the best of both worlds with rack pulls and the snatch grip. These will wallop loads of meat on your upper back.

    2. I often use them in Month 2 or 3 with a beginner as a progression from rack pulls if that individual still isn't quite ready to deadlift from the floor.

    3. Your index finger should be on the rings

    Thanks Ileen! :kiss:

    So the difference is just the wider grip? :scratch:
