I rarely pull from the floor anymore. Most of my pulls are from 3" blocks.
If it's cheating, I am a cheater who can double 700 pounds, and who has monster traps, erectors and a thick back.
Same here, Rack Deads are a blast!!! And yes, pulling from different heights are a great way to increase over all power for deads.
What I did in the past from the floor, I went abit lighter, yet focusing on the tempo from the floor to mid shin area...TUT...time under tension. Proper mechanics are key!
