Another way to phrase it is a "jump with a barbell and then immediately into the bottom position of a front squat."

Yes, I figured that was what you meant.

No pull involved in the drill I described.

The man that can clean without a pull... well, I'd be impressed by that.

Got it - thanks fellas.

Ross/Linc - I am clear on what that means. There is still a full deadlift and explosive shrug/pull, but only enough to get under the bar. this is where i need to practice - getting under the bar quickly, and I'll give Chris' drill a try today. thanks-

Noticed they also posted info on this on the main/WOD screen today. "Pull only as high as needed to get under the bar in the squat position..."

Hi Marc. I know what you are going through. I started out back in the early 60's, with the split style. I started to get back into O lifting, the right way, around 1999. I read an article on the Old School Board on the EZ board ring by Gary Valentine. It was a simple drill. You start off in the fully extended position, with the bar or PVC, shrugged, up on toes (or not, depending on who your coach is), and race to drop under the bar. I found it easiest to start flat footed, then go into the full extension, while dropping down under. Lots of good coaches on this site can tell you the best way to do it. Then, as you get comfortable, over a period of time, lower the bar for the starting position, i.e. hi hang, low hang (below knees) and finally to the floor. It worked for me, hope it helps for you.
