I'm switching to it for an upcoming event. For whatever reason it works well with my particular grip. Looking for video links beyond the three or four paltry offerings on youtube.. Maybe Josh Everett vids? I think he uses it.

Andres Marumets does it with the axle with great success. I don't have any footage to share, but it's what he uses to clean the axle that works well.

All the best,
Arden

Thanks Arden, that's the exact situation. My left thumb if has a wee stress fracture that won't allow me to grip the axle overhand on that side, best I've come up with so far is mixed grip, split clean...

Vasil does the mixed grip curl and rip it. Then he sets it on his massive chest and changes his left hand position to do the press.

I can't find any footage of him doing it on youtube either. sorry.

All the best,
Arden

I met a guy named Ross Hunt that trains with Spoon Barbell Club in Dallas. He's pretty damn strong, and I believe he does split cleans.

Assuming the Ross Hunt (-Ross Hunt) here is the same guy, you can shoot him a PM and see if he has any vids.
