    My understanding is that it depends on the level of the trainee. Intermediate and advanced trainees will benefit from integrating rack pulls and halting DLs in rotation with conventionals. A novice will progress better with just conventionals.

    But if rack pulls are an assistance exercise for the deadlift, why would you go for six weeks doing only rack pulls without doing a single deadlift?

    Most of the time, rack pulls are selected because of their shorter range of motion. The deadlift becomes too difficult to recover from, so it's split into two movements: the rack pull and halting deadlift.

    You wouldn't. See Andrew's post above.

    Well, I tried them. Got up to 405 (yes, weak) but I definitely felt the entire body challenged. Even after a few days I could still feel tightness in my "core" lol. But seriously, my low back and obliques were lit up.
