Brian,

I looked up the Hill equation and it essentially is shifted to the left and down, so that there are finite F and v intercepts, so those limits aren't off. I'd still like to see more about...

Thanks for the compliment! I'd be happy to look over the kinematics on the WCC tapes. I probably can't do it for a little while, though. I'm getting married in 3 weeks, so there's not a...

Brian,

I agree that the picture I presented is simplistic, and said as much in my post. But I think that sometimes the simplistic view gives you insights into what's actually happening. And I'm...

Watch someone performing a Snatch or a full clean to a squat, and you'll see that they are pulling themselves down just like you are pulling yourself up while upside down.
