biggest thing ive noticed didnt read enough to know if you've been told i hope by now with all these peopel watching they should have told you but JUMP YOUR FEET.
I know I've got a long way to go, but I think doing my snatches and cleans like this will get me more deliberate as the wonderful video link you posted. I hope I'm getting closer?
I've found when I jump, I'm very inconsistent with my landings and I've ended up "tweaking" a knee, an ankle, and more than I care to discuss. When I don't jump, everything is stable, controlled, and I don't get hurt.
Quote I know I've got a long way to go, but I think doing my snatches and cleans like this will get me more deliberate as the wonderful video link you posted. I hope I'm getting closer?Your session looks well organised, very efficient and non-traumatic Arden, I think it's again a big improvement. The snatches and pulls look very good, already the bar often stays at the thighs up until the groin, impressive. Control is improving, things are coming together. A very good mix of full lifts and hangs. The halting from above the knees will strengthen greatly where it counts. Incorporate some hangs with a pause at just above the knees. It will intensely train the squat under. -start the lowering of the bar to the knees by pushing back (leading with) the hips, allowing the knees to bend, at the same time, (try to) arch in the lower back.Good rythmn in the pulls. The top, with the extending on the feet balls and shrugging automatically perfect. Keep the bar at the thighs.-make more use of the head as a counter weight for generating more pulling torque; at the top, keep it in line with the spine, ending up looking up, and with the head behind the hips, body in a rearward arc. A good example of what I mean is the last rep of the first set of pulls.SjaakPS: I just read Jim's reply and I agree.
Study Scherbatis too -- his lifts are VERY efficient for a super.Very wide starting stance, super-pelvic pop, near zero hop.
Sjaak, Thanks so much for the input. It makes a lot of sense. I'm really starting to understand the importance of the head in the top of the pull. Not only does it provide a good lever, but it also starts the third pull by going up and back. I never felt it before until today while I was doing some cleans. I hope to upload them tonight. I'm slowly getting it. With the hangs, you mention taking the bar to just above the knees - again, the importance is to keep the bar in contact with the thighs until the torso is completely erect - correct? I hope? That's what I'm shooting for and I wanted to make certain I'm understanding correctly. Thanks again for everything.
