It's both... not one or the other...

The knee undergoes flexion which requires the quads to counteract and reverse accelerate the movement. The hips also undergoes flexion which requires the glutes to counteract that movement.

Just focus on keeping the lordic arch and then exploding much like you would in the second pull. Pretty much the same thing except the bar is in a different position.
