Re: Shoulder placement (Deadlift, Clean, Snatch)

Actually I was about to ask the same question and I am somehow disappointed nobody answered.

In this video; (WFS) its explained that shoulders should be in "up and locked" position. I believe the same applies for clean?

For a deadlift, The Ant says, its better to leave the hands "hanging", consider them just as a wire coming off your body and connecting to the bar.

But, there is still a question for power clean and power snatch and shoulder placement. As these two lifts require the bar to be raised much higher than the regular clean/snatch I do wonder if it would be better if shoulder are in an "unlocked" position and they also assist in the third pull of the movement?

What do you guys think?
