Is this based on strength level, aka once you've reached 2.5x Bodyweight or more? Or is it due to being beat up physically after many years of floor pulls? Is it just a switch to focus on weak areas of the lift!

Just wondering is there anything "wrong" with pulling from the floor week in and week out?

Thoughts.....
Absolutely not! If your body can handle it, go for it! I started to do variations since I injured my lower back and recovery started to take forever after that. Whenever I pulled from the floor for more than 3 weeks in a row, I either strained myself or got weaker.
