Rack pulls are perhaps one of the best back builders of ALL the exercises, mainly because they are a heavy compound.
- 1Set up the safety bars on a rack to about knee level
- 2Place a bar on the safety pins and load it
- 3Grab the bar at about shoulder width, with either an overhand or a mixed grip
- 4Bend knees slightly, keep torso straight and look forward
- 5Pull the bar up, extending the torso (Avoid extending aggressively)
- 6Go back down slowly, maintaining tension on the back
