“High Pull Progression”
The 3 varieties of High Pull that we use will fatigue and break down in similar fashion to strict press vs. push press vs. push jerk or dead hang vs. chest-to-bar vs. kipping pullup. As we fatigue, the “simplest” motions with the most mechanical advantages will last the longest.
5 reps of 1-arm HP (L & R), FRHP (Full-range high pull), and regular high pull (to chin.)
No more than 3 sets of 5 reps- climb in weight each set.
3 reps of the same motions. As we approach our max weight, reps of the lift go down.
No more than 2 sets of 3 reps. If 1-arm HP or FRHP are done early, note finishing weight.
1 rep of any remaining motions until failure, adding weight each rep.
“Failure” consists of not only completely missed reps, but substandard form.
Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.
