Not A Speed (Panda) Pull... Just Being Lazy

Pulls serve a number of purposes and the emphasis changes with the variation, but what never changes is the need to always train proper balance, timing and control.
I discourage speed pulls for most of you because they’re tough to truly do well—most people just cut the extension short to pull down, which means training a worse finish in the snatch and clean.
So either do them or don’t—don’t do the weird gray area pull that’s training every aspect poorly.
If you tend to cut your pull short, stick to conventional pulls and dial that in.
If you’re good at finishing your pulls but are slow to transition or pull down, then try adding some speed pulls along with your conventional pulls.
And keep yourself honest with regular video checks—don’t get lazy.
