Driving Through the Heels in the SDHP

ByCrossFitJuly 21, 2020

In the drive phase of the sumo deadlift high pull, athletes should strive to stay rooted in the heels until hip extension occurs. Often, powerful hip extension will lead to continued extension of the ankles, leading athletes onto the toes. However, if this occurs prematurely, athletes may lose power or the barbell may deviate forward of the frontal plane, as CrossFit Seminar Staff member David Tittle (CF-L3) explains during a Level 1 Certificate Course at CrossFit Decimate.
