CROSSFIT FUNDAMENTALS #8: The Sumo Deadlift High Pull

Build on the Deadlift move and fast-track your strength with the Sumo Deadlift High Pull.

Start off light with this one then gradually add weight as you continue your CrossFit journey.

Here’s a demonstration of a Sumo Deadlift High Pull from CrossFit expert James Hobart

tips in mind when performing a Sumo Deadlift High Pull:

  1. Hip-width stance
  2. Hands inside legs with full grip on the bar
  3. Knees in line with toes
  4. Shoulders slightly in front of bar at set up
  5. Lumbar curve maintained
  6. Hips and shoulders rise at the same rate
  7. Hips then extend
  8. Heels down until hips and legs extend
  9. Shoulders then shrug, followed by a pull of the arms
  10. Elbows move high and outside
  11. Bar moves over the middle of the foot
  12. Complete at full hip and knee extension with bar pulled under the chin

Twelve steps for one move! It seems like a lot but the fact is if you don’t position your body correctly you are putting yourself at risk of injury.

Have a trainer watch you performing the Sumo Deadlift High Pull so he or she can point out how to optimise your strength building and limit the possibility of hurting yourself.
