Re: Explosion from the knees?

Is something like this meant to mimic full extension achieved in a clean or snatch? If so I see I failed. ha

Although I don't know how you could reach legit full extension and still jump forward onto the plates...

Re: Explosion from the knees?

Looked like you were doing it fine.

Here's a slow motion full extension.

I love those things. I term them knee jumps. They are a great tool at teaching people full hip extension directly into a catching position.

Re: Explosion from the knees?

Ya I had no idea what to call them. His extension looks way better than mine. I shall fix that .

I wonder what they will do for my box jump...it will be interesting to see.

Re: Explosion from the knees?

I was messing around with these one day while coaching people (no warm up or anything) and knee jumped onto a 12" box. No idea if that's good, but it felt like there wasn't much room to go up.

Challenge accepted

What's your highest box jump you've ever done?

Re: Explosion from the knees?

They do these at Westside to build "explosive strength." Phil Harrington is their big box jumper and he feels these were key for him getting better at box jump height. Of course, he will do them weighted on with a vest on the ankles.

I think Westside likes this better for hip extension compared to the oly lifts because the oly lifts start out slow on the first pull.

They also like kneeling or seated snatches/cleans and hang versions of the oly lifts. I think there is a vid in the CF journal of some of the Course Trainers at Westside trying these variants.

Also, if you have low celingings where you train, they are probably a decent box jump sub.

Re: Explosion from the knees?

I played around with them up to a 60lb preloaded bar on my back.

I'm going to trying cleaning and see where I can get to the next time I do them.

It'd be cool to get a sweet box jump out of it.

I'm having a hard time envisioning a seated snatch or clean...

Google knows all so lets see...

Maybe a winner?

Now my next question is where would you program something like that?

Tomorrow my day is:


Snatch
PC
Snatch Pull
Snatch Deadlift

So where would something like that go?

On another note,

Impressive.

Re: Explosion from the knees?

Tried these out yesterday with a bar. Worked up to 235. Got the 225 on tape.
