Worked with the fittest young man on Earth, @dallinpeppercf
, this evening. I failed to get him a PR in the clean, but we did get a chance to talk about the advantages of the ‘dive’ set up, as well as a chance to talk about the fact that since power is generated from the hips outwards to the extremities, we need to keep those extremities loose most of the time during a lift, such as in the need to avoid clenching the hands in a jerk or even in the type of squatting that translates well to the classic lifts. Finally we talked about ‘dating’ vs ‘getting married’ in the ‘commit’ phase of the clean, that while the former is less frightening initially, the latter, scarier deed leads to better results.
