She's Olympian Cheryl Haworth 315#, and bringer of hope to me!

Wow, her feet seem to be incredibly close together.

I noticed that, and they're also WAY more turned out than I've ever seen before, but she's so fluid that I wonder if there may be some advantage there?

I find myself (former ballet training) fighting that turnout, but I wonder if it's even necessary?

Hopefully someone with more knowledge about O lifting form will chime in. I certainly don't have enough experience to know if it is good or bad form, but it certainly seems like an incredibly narrow stance compared to other top lifters I have seen video of.

I believe I saw the feet together + turned out stance referred to in Dreschler's OL Encyclopedia.

Cheryl has other quirks about her stance - her jerk stance starts quite wide. Bottom line: it works for her.

The stance in question is called the frog stance. I understand that it shifts greater load to the legs during the first pull, and increases the power of the first pull while decreasing the importance of the second.

The Chinese lifter who squat jerked at the 88' Seoul Olympics in one of the lighter weight classes also used this technique.

I've gotta look into that frog stance. Cheryl's 5'10"- an inch taller than me, but I've got a 34 inch inseam...

I liked this clip so much because it really does a great job showing off the power of that 1st pull. If the frog stance allows one to generate the majority of explosion using mainly the legs and first pull- I see my numbers going WAAAAY up.
