Rack Pull vs. Health Lift

In Strongman Mastery by adminLeave a Comment

This video covers the difference between Rack Pull vs. Health Lift, and why you might want to choose one over the other:

The key difference is in the alignment of the spine and legs.

In a rack pull, you’re mimicking your deadlift position as you would normally have it, typically in a conventional deadlift.

In a health lift, you aim to keep the back upright (not just straight), and this means that the knees come forward.

Small difference, but important if you want to handle bigger weights. That’s because in the health lift form, you’ll be able to life more, at least once you’re use to it.
