Abstract

SUMMARY: THE PULL TO KNEE IS AN EXERCISE THAT ALLOWS AN ATHLETE TO BECOME EFFICIENT IN PRODUCING FORCE WITH AN OVERLOAD STIMULUS, AS WELL AS IT IS A TEACHING MODALITY FOR THE INITIAL PULL FROM THE FLOOR IN WEIGHTLIFTING. THIS MOVEMENT EMPHASIZES THE PRECURSOR MOVEMENT LEADING INTO THE DOUBLE KNEE BEND POSITION.
