Adam, I am going to double the price on that soon, so take advantage of it now...

The new CFJ on page 7. Mark Rippetoe explains why he teaches the power clean before the squat clean. I thought that was a plausible reason.

Dan-

1.) What are "Gobblet Squats?"

2.) Would the progression you have above ::: """I start with Goblet Squats and teach the bottom position, then move to OvSqts then Front Squats. From there, PVC pipe snatches. Usually, that is it for a few workouts...""" be good for learning the snatch?

Russ - thanks. Seems the gobblet squat required some pretty specific technique. I may give it a try.

Marc, it isn't that complicated. Just do 'em. There is a bit of over-study that happens here on the boards, but, really, do them like Allan noted in the discussion...for time, for learning...

Marc,

Take a look at this link:
http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/22/18615.html

It has the progression that Coach John was speaking of earlier. I'd recommend printing it out and actually doing it.

Dan & Allen- Thanks - good stuff. I wish I was doing XFIT back in Jan - I would have come up for this event in DC.

I'll add this drill into my program. I am already doing overhead squats using 5 lb stick, so I'll just throw in the goblet as well.
