Did some more OHS today. Tried really hard to point my toes out more and look straight ahead. I felt much more comfortable with my toes pointed out more. I hope it looks better to those learned among us.

Did 95x5, 135x4, 185x3, 205x2, 135x5.

The amount of weight isn't really the issue it's the "getting comfortable" in that position part of it.

I think it would be good for me to drill myself senseless from the pulling stance to the receiving stances and get those toes pointed out more like they were today. Both on my cleans and my snatches.

Does that make sense?

Thanks in advance for those that share.

All the best,
Arden

Looked a lot more solid than your last vid, very nice.

Make sure you change your stance in the way your front/Oly back squat as well since the receiving stance is suppose to be the same. Like I had said before, the chalk thing on the outside of the feet can help, have one outline for your pulling stance and then one outline for the "new" stance with your toes out. You can even use that in conjuction with the Burgnener WU.

Thanks Allen.

I have those marks on my platform at home. And I'm going to make sure all my squats reflect this more prounced turning of the toes.

For me, it amounts to about a 1" to 2" movement of my toes outward to go from my pulling stance to my recieving stance. I'm going to drill myself to death on this to get it right.

All the best,
Arden

I notice you are coming up on your toes at the bottom of your squats in both this video and the older one. It gets more and more noticeable as the weight increases. Those heels need to stay planted throughout the movement. It could just be a symptom for some other problem, but I am not experienced enough to catch. just thought I would point it out though since no one else has
