Help with the C&J

Greg Everett 03-07-2013 01:59 PM

All in all, pretty good

On the clean, the main thing is that you need to work on ankle flexibility and sitting straight down into that squat instead of back - Don't reach for the bar with your chest, bring it back to you and sit straight in as upright as you can.

Jerk -

You need to move the hips straight down as you dip, not sit back. Torso never leaves the vertical orientation during the dip and drive. Maybe even dip a little shallower.

Thanks for the help Greg, just recently bought your book and it's helped me remarkably. I know the ankles have been a problem and I have stretching them religiously. I'll try to dip and sit tomorrow and see how it goes!
