Soreness in the heel could be plantar fascia strain. I got plantar fasciitis pretty bad doing sprint repeats. Took months to heal.

You might need to gain some calf flexibility for the B squat.


If the soreness persists, I found that freezing a water bottle, then putting it on a towel on the floor and rolling the arch of my foot and heel on it helped a lot.

Would the B squat be particularly useful if one receives the bar for snatchs and cleans in a split?

Tom,
There are further articles on the ironsports.tv page specifically about utilizing the B squat in the OLs.

Also, someone posted a video of an elite US OLer who appeared to catch his jerks in something very much like a B squat (it was a black guy if anyone remembers who this was).

Without being able to check that youtube I'll guess you're talking about Kendrick Ferris, who C&J 200 with that, I think an American record in the 85 weight class.

I wonder if this squat position has other applications to oly lifting. Could one catch heavy cleans or snatches this way? Anyone see this?

John,
Bryce may cover some of your questions in some other articles of his:
http://ironsports.tv/ohbsq.pdf
http://ironsports.tv/afewgoodlifts.pdf

Other than Kendrick Ferris (I believe that is who I was referring to), I don't know of anyone doing heavy OL with a B style.
