Re: Rings in Power Racks - is it Safe?

Keep the barbell loaded and it will be very stable! I have no issues performing skin the cat, weighted dips, and pullups from them.

Stretch your hamstrings using the bent-knee hamstring stretch! I can tell you as I had a similar issue including my achilles until I started mobilizing the upper hamstring. Once that area is loose,...

Re: High hang precentage of full clean and snatch?

All depends on the lifter. If your better from the hang and only train the hang, your full clean/snatch may be lower. Again, max out and let us know. My guess would be 80-90% of your 1rm but that is...

Sure your not taking it with caffeine? That always seems to be the issue with preworkouts when I consume them.

Re: Not training the snatch?

Do variations such as overhead squat, snatch balance, and hang snatch. I find it is easier for my students to learn the proper technique without frustration.

FWIW, I had my football athletes only...

Re: right foot turning out more in squats/squat cleans, also right leg hurting while walking

Psoas and quadriceps mobilize 2-3x a day. Stretch them ALOT(not to the point of pain) throughout the day. That and working on ankle mobility all the time should fix 80-90% of your issues!
