Oh shoot. I didn't realize you could read minds. I guess the fact that they write articles discussing the exact opposite technique and use said technique threw me off. Probably doesn't cut anything. They draw the elbows under because that puts the body in the strongest position. Throwing the elbows high up behind the bar, doesn't.
Powerlifter at heart. It is what it is.
