What I find interesting about this sequence...is how upright his torso stays off the floor and into the transition. I'm used to seeing videos (including elite lifters) who hinge heavily at/around the knees, where that vertical torso almost lays out horizontally when the hips shoot up. I guess that would mean Steiner's quads are really strong to hold that position (it appears to me that he is basically 'squatting' it up)?

Disregarding the posts above about the squat/knee tracking....Greg, would you consider this an ideal to aim for...holding the torso that vertical specifically through the first pull and into the scoop?
