I read that discussion you emailed me about. You explained it well...idiocy followed. Crappy metabolic work is not the answer to crappy clean technique!!!

Bottom line: cleans beat up the wrists of a young lifter. The snatch is the same movement, but they can't do that "reverse curly" thingee. So...you teach the big movement, the jump from the RDL...then, you move the hands to the clean position. The athlete "catches" correctly and you don't have the issue of wrist pain.

Of course, as a coward and clown...what do I know? I have been teaching people how to clean since Ford was president and this is my experience.

The comment that I only care about "Masters Totals" was beyond offensive...
