Strong stuff, how often should one do block/rack pulls or would you do a few weeks then switch to of the floor or deficits? Question for everyone,did them exclusively for a around 5-6 weeks but felt sluggish off the floor.

I'd say its a very individual thing. For me I fail right below the knee, I do pause deadlifts and block pulls around that height to strength my weakest part, my lockout. I don't do any speed or deficit work.

My style makes me very fast from the floor but I sacrifice my lockout strength, this helps that. Also psychologically if I pull more and my body can feels it from height its a thousands times easier pulling from the floor.

I either rotate pulls from blocks and from the floor each session, or work from a block reducing the height each session until I'm back to the floor again. I also find block pulls beat me up less so I can train more frequently, it takes me a good two weeks to recover from normal deads these days!

Many ways to skin a cat, just my two cents....

Edit - oh yeah never ever do rack pulls!! just blocks or bumper plates if you want to pull from height.

Thanks mate!

Here's a final bit of overload training before I attempt 340 in a few weeks.
