The Sumo Deadlift High Pull Kettlebell as a Full Body Exercise



The sumo deadlift high pull exercise is promoted extensively in the world of CrossFit, but it is a controversial exercise because when it is performed with a barbell there is a significant risk of injury. The exercise requires people to grip the barbell in the middle with a grim that is awkward, and the act of pulling the bar up to the chin can put excessive strain on the spine.

It is a good full-body exercise, though, and doing the sumo deadlift high pull kettlebell variation is a good compromise since kettlebells are easier to grip and are designed to be swung in a way that barbells are not.

There are many different sizes of kettlebell, allowing people to select the weight that they want to use. The handle on top of the kettlebell allows people to get a strong and secure grip and the more controlled center of gravity. This greatly reduces the risk of injury.

The one downside to using a kettlebell for sumo deadlift high pulls is that obtaining very heavy kettlebells can be difficult. This means that bigger men who train weights extensively may find that they cap out on what they can do with the exercise. Fortunately, there are many alternative movements that a stronger lifter can progress to.
