Default Tall variations

Hi Greg,

I saw back in 2008/2009 you use to program tall variations of the lifts quite a bit, but you don't anymore.

Any reason for this?

Do you still find value in them or have you found other methods better for developing speed under the bar?

I still use them quite a bit, more tall snatch than tall clean. I haven't intentionally moved away from them on the site programs. I have 3-4 of my lifters doing them twice a week in their current training.
