I imagine, right this moment, Yuri Belkin is THE icon in terms of sumo pulls.
He mastered essentially the most environment friendly beginning place AND execution. 400kg (880lbs) is now a working coaching weight for him and lately he pulled over 420kg (920+lbs) a number of occasions.
Why is he so rattling robust? What does he have what the others don’t? I imagine it’s primarily two issues: glorious setup and impecable execution.
(after all, he’s tremendous robust however that’s not the difficulty we debate right here)
Le’t break up his setup first.
Tremendous large stance with toes to plates so as to decrease ROM.
Ft turned out considerably in order that he can pull his hips as near the bar as attainable.
Shins vertical each from the entrance view and facet view for direct switch of energy (he creates zero pointless leverage).
Torso fairly vertical round 60 levels to off-load again and cargo as a lot as attainable to hips and legs.
Now let’s verify the execution.
Backbone as vertical as attainable, he hundreds most into hips and legs.
Brings hips to the bar and knees out.
When the bar leaves the bottom solely couple of inches he already tries to make use of quads to lock knees as quickly as attainable and THEN he does the poweful hip hinge with glutes (two-phase sumo pull).
