Brian,
Great drill. Will do. I sort of feel that like that position is almost like a RDL with the bar a bit closer to your body. Is that the right sort of feel? But with the knees a bit more bent of course?

Working on this stuff. The main thing for me at this point is getting my chest out and getting rid of that row/pause that I've got going on with the second pull. I'm also limited to power movements until the middle age tweakys go away in my left knee. It's almost there, but I want to give it some more time.

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and input. Great to share the knowledge.

All the best,
Arden

It's just simply a halting deadlift into a snatch/clean, that's the best way to look at it. Eventually you reduce the halt every few reps until you're doing the full lift. It is a positioning drill, getting you into a good position for the 2nd pull.

Here's snippets from my session yesterday. Still rowing a bit and pausing when I should be exploding. I need to get my chest out more and my hips higher on the full reps. It's coming, slowly but surely. Thanks again to everyone for your thoughts and input. I've got to get back to the basics and forget about the fine points right now.

Did you rip your pants? That's awesome. It looks noticeably better.

Some notes:

- keep head up, that will facilitate chest up
- Think speed above the knee, from there to your shoulders or overhead should be as fast as possible

Thanks Brian. No rip in the pants. Rehband warm pants and Rehband knee sleeves. The bottom of the warm pants comes up if I let teh bar rub too soon. It's sort of a reminder that I'm not getting tall enough.

Head up, chest up and speed above the knee. Looking forward to returning to full lifts soon.

All the best,
Arden
