The Power is All in the Legs
Issac’s demonstrating the perfect position at the top of a Sumo Deadlift High Pull. Elbows above the bar, bar just below the chin, and full extension of the ankles, knees and hips (you can’t see this, but trust me, he’s got it down!) This movement, when done correctly, utilizes the legs for power, core for midline stabilization and transference of power, and arms to hold onto the bar and complete the power transfer from the legs as the bar rises up under the chin. If your arms are bent at any time, before your ankles, knees and hips are fully extended, you are breaking this chain, and your efficiency, thus power and work output, will be compromised.
