Snatch Grip Block Pulls: Nothing better for building a big backside. The wide grip places more stress on your upper back, traps, and rear delts. Pulling from blocks lets you to handle more weight. The wide grip increases the ROM, so doing these from mid-shin gives you a similar ROM to pulling conventional off the floor. Doing them from the floor is similar to pulling from a deficit. Take a wide grip, at or outside the rings. The wider you go, the harder it is (and harder to grip). I recommend using straps so your grip isn’t your limiting factor. Use the bar to pull your hips into position and your chest upright. Keep your back tight and flat. Stand up hard through your heels and hump the bar via squeezing your glutes. @chickenlegsnomore #powerlifting #deadlift #girlswhopowerlift #glutes #traps
