    I've been searching everywhere, exrx has no idea what it is (or calls it something completely different).

    Anyone have a gif/video/pics/any-freakin-thing?

    Put the pins about a foot off the floor in a power rack.

    Load up the weight.

    Pull like a normal DL.

    I really need to train my grip. I can pull 300 only 3 times before I drop it. :wtc:

    I did a 1RM at 370 though. :ugh:

    FWIW, check my logs and you'll see how quickly your grip will strengthen.

    I was failing at ~270 only 6 weeks ago or so. Now I can rep 100lbs more 5x without a problem...

    your lowerback will want to stab you when you first do it.. but it'll add some sick thickness after a while.. i was reading an article by art atwood and he says that 'half deadlifts' (read: pinpulls, but not off pins), are the single exercise that really built his back
