    Thats where i put them at tonight and it seems kinda easy like that. maybe i'm doing it wrong? The most i've ever pulled was 300x2 and i haven't deadlifted in a few months now. I did 365x8 and could've kept going but my grip went to shit

    They are a good back exercise, though from what I've heard from the PL guys here they aren't very applicable to improving your deadlift.

    I do them but put the pins a little below knee level.

    put them just below the knee if you're trying to focus on your lock out. Above your knee you won't get the leg drive necessary to use more weight to work on the lock out.

    Will help with your grip deadlifting, do it a couple of times. I wouldn't include it on the regular though.

    Pin pulls will strain the cns less and in that facet are better than deads. I would alternate each workout which one I did. Just IMO
