Are the feet leaving the ground to pull the bar up higher? Or just to foot shift for the squat?
I don't think it is fair to acess a coaches training methodolgy by HIS own sucesses.
So are any of his guys good?
I only watched like 1 minute of his youtube clip. But, I have heard him talk about it before. I reject the notion the jerk can be done effectively without a jump just as I reject the assertion about the snatch and clean. It may/should be minimal and hard to see. But it will be there if it is a decent weight being lifted. Donald wishes not to call it a jump when the feet raise to the balls, leave the ground, and land flat- semantics, though I haven't heard him come up with another word for it. :)
Isn't this a prime example of what he means by catapault technique?Kakhi Kakhiasvili in Sidney 2000kaxiPerepetchnov 164 Snatch super slo-moPerepetchnov 205kg Clean Super Slow-motionI mean all the check points are there right?-Start with hips low-barely going up onto toes, and feet only just leaving the ground to foot shift so he can squat, rather then pulling the bar up higher-sling shot under the bar super FAST-shrugs hard to get UNDER the bar fast, rather then pulling the bar up higherSo why all the contraversy?From what I can tell, Don McCauley is just teaching people to pull from the ground like kakhi and perepetchenov. Hardly a bad thing. They did pretty well with it.Admittidly, it is not considered 'coventional' technique right now.But maybe this is the next evolution in the sport - he is teaching the art of getting under the bar lighting fast?I suppose the proof is in the pudding - Are any of Don McCauley's guys good on the american scene (i am not familar with the american scene)? I know there are a lot of coaches on this forum, and people who compete, has any one come up against them? And do they end up on the podium often?The bits i find a bit wierd are:-starting with the bar AWAY from your shins - Is this normal?-having shoulders LOOSE - i thought you are supposed to have them tight enough so as transmit the pulling force, but not too tight so because this will inhibit the shrug?
