Barbell High Pulls
- Prepare a barbell with a lighter amount of weight than usual. Place the barbell in front of you at your shins.
- Squat down into position, driving your hips back. Keep your chest and head up. Place your hands in an overhand grip on the barbell. Your arms should be straight with a slight bend at the elbow.
- In one fluid motion, explode up and off the ground as you pull the bar high, leading with your elbows. Your feet will leave the ground.
- Land softly and lower yourself back to the starting position.
