Re: Deadlift stalls 2-3" from the top

Like stated above. Rack pulls are great, chains/bands, Dimmels, Good Mornings (with SSB if you have access to one), RDLs, Reverse Band DL, Sumo DL, etc, etc. Using those hams and glutes are absolutely key. Keep the bar moving fast and fire to extension when above the knees. I also keep my knees out slightly when I do conventional pulls. About mid-thigh I try to lock my knees out so I can really fire the glutes. This was today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qa7z3mOxq78 (wfs)
