SDLHP (Sumo Deadlift High Pull) July 13 2014

The starting position of the SDLHP. Feet are outside the shoulders (sumo), toes slightly pointed out, back and core tight, arms locked out and the kettlebell centered between the feet. 

The initial movement will be an ascent to standing. At this point, keep the arms locked out. 

The "pull". Keep arms locked out until passing the knees and thighs. As you are about to hit the hips, begin with a shrug and begin to pull the kettlebell up, keeping your elbows out to the side. 

The final position will have you standing up straight, hips fully open and the arms pulled to about collarbone height. (Elbows out!)
