    Fellas..

    I've taken a liking to the mechanics of High Pulls, and subsequently plan on incorporating them in to my routine, as I keep hearing about how good they are, and well.. I feel I SHOULD do them.
    I've stayed away from Cleans as a wrist injury nags any future prospect of gaining any good from them, so it appears High Pulls is a great substitute..

    I formerly trained twice a week, but now I have a small gap on Wednesday inbetween class to train, and well.. I kinda thought of just throwing in a quick, simple workout for fun.


    My training week looks like this:

    Monday - Squat/Military Press/Bent-Over Row

    Tuesday - BJJ, MMA

    Wednesday - Dips/Pullups/Rows

    Thursday - BJJ/MMA

    Friday - Deadlift/Dumbell Press/Rotator Cuff work| Bartending from 9pm til 4:30am

    Saturday
    - Open Mat BJJ | Bartending from 9pm til 4:30am

    Sunday
    - REST


    Cheers S&P.

    I love snatches. Unless they are dirty.

    Actually, I really like doing pulls as well. I can't seem to get the mechanics of the OL.

    Do them before deadlifts, working up in weight. When you can't high pull the weight, start doing deadlifts. Just a thought.

    You could do them first on Wednesday and drop the rows that day.
