Re: Clean pulls and snatch pulls question

In either one, you're supposed to be doing the pull as if you would do a normal clean or snatch. You simply don't go under the bar. But, you should do the pull to extension, up on toes and shrug...

Re: Coop's Garage Gym

While I applaud home gyms and walk-throughs, 20 minutes is way too long for me to sit and watch.

I got a sense of it from the wide shot at the beginning, and Great Job!!

Re: Platform noise issues

These were the ones I was thinking of:

They're 24" x 24" and 1.75" thick. Plus, they're cheaper than most others...

Re: Platform noise issues

I'm thinking about doing this!! Putting a layer of stall mats down under the platform. I'm also looking at those playground-style mats that are like 1.5"-2" thick. Not sure which I'm going with,...

Re: Platform noise issues

One thing you can do is put some carpet padding under the platform. Also, you can glue the pieces together if you didn't when you built it.

Re: Barbell spin tests

Can it make a difference? Yes, it can. The spin tests are basically trying to show how freely the sleeve spins, not necessarily how many times it goes around. Notice that most bars will spin...

Re: Snatch and c&j coaching

To work on pulling under the bar, try tall snatches. The form I used to get so much better at this is: stand with the bar at arm's length in the hip crease, start by going up onto the toes and...

Re: Where to store my Eleiko

I think you'll be fine. I have a ZKC hard chrome bar, lived in the DFW area for 9 years with it and had NO issues with rust. So long as you keep the chalk build-up down, you'll have no problems.

Re: Snatch and c&j coaching

Starting with hips higher is a good way to work on the issue. Most people have a bad habit of starting with hips too low, IMHO. I got into that habit with all the stuff going around the internet. ...

Re: Snatch and c&j coaching

Well, there's a few things you could work on. In the first pull your hips are rising too fast causing you to get on your toes and be forward, both snatch and clean. You bend your arms to bring the...

Re: Rogue - Black Friday?

Pretty much this!!

Last year I got a Rogue S-2 and bench, along with the rest of the items to make 5, and all shipped for $5. Way cheaper!!

Re: Reducing noise during deadlifts

In addition to the carpet and bumpers, consider ballistic rubber tiles as used on playgrounds, anywhere from 1.5" to 2.5" thick. I've lifted on these and they are the quietest rubber tiles I've ever...

Re: OHS critique

That sounds pretty good. With the OHS+pause, I would do something like triples, however many sets you can do, up to 5 or so. For the sots press, something like 3-5 sets of 5's will do you well.

Re: OHS critique

I'm not really a coach, so you might get better opinions from others on what would be better to do. My thought would be to perform OHS at least once a week with a pause in the bottom. Another day,...

Re: OHS critique

There is a slight difference between the 2. IMHO, I think the left is slightly better in terms of keeping your torso more vertical. However, I also think the difference is very minimal. I think...

Re: Bottom of Snatch

Internal v. external rotation in the shoulders is going to be somewhat determined by your shoulder joint. There's only going to be so much you can do to improve it. You'll see lots of examples of...

Re: can you comment on my squats

Both look fine, really. The front squat looks better in terms of hitting the bottom position and catching a slight bounce/rebound. In the back squat video, your facial expression leads me to...

Re: Barbell Guide

Link to said bar? I've never seen bars with rubber end caps.

Also, what kind of workouts are you mostly going to be doing with this bar?

Can't watch the videos as they're set to private (I think, as I have to ask permission).

Just watch recovery, otherwise you'll just be spinning your wheels, especially at heavier weights!!

Re: Hoping to get some help understand wrist wraps

Word. I, too, use wrist wraps, but not all the time. Not only have my wrists been giving me problems lately, but yes to something hurting nearly all the time.

Re: Help with Overhead Squat

You can tell you're not really that comfortable down in the bottom of the OHS. So, I would not rush the movement. Go down slow, sit there for a few seconds, then come up slow and under control. ...
