Very well stated.

Personally, I'm impressed with the ability to move that weight despite the lack of technique, form, use of straps, etc. I would not coach or recommend such technique. But's that just me and I'm not a SC coach. And never professed to be; although I'm very learned in SC and have over 25 of weight training under my belt.

All the best,
Arden

We should be posting links like this one of Tommy Moffitt of LSU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIqB_...eature=related
this was found just to the right of the maryland video... didn't take much work to get there.

Patrick: college recreation centers exist to serve the student population... they will supply whatever the students demand... right now students demand a 24 hour fitness model. Get a couple dozen students to demand better equipment and you might get some good stuff to use.

Derek: people/kids will listen to you if you have expert knowledge and have to ability to communicate/relate/teach it to them. Your ability to physically perform at an elite level will only hold thier attention for maybe a day. I've never seen anyone ask Coach Burgener to do a clean before they would listen to him.

Nice post, Josh.

Some folks are impressed by feats of strength, some by feats of form. 455 is BIG.

At first, I thought he was going with the old school Continental Clean. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83Uf9zZkVOo

Exactly.

455 is a lot, good for him.

I know that this thread has pretty much run it's course, but I saw this when I was browsing through the strengthmill.net the other day and didn't know where else to post it. I like Rip's response: "And as for the video, I didn't realize this was possible. A team clean. Just shows you what high school football coaches will do if left without professional supervision. They should be exterminated with some kind of spray."

I'm honestly not really sure what I just watched. So you do pull with your arms in the clean?

The youtube generation gets on my nerves. It seems to me that every little thing they do must be videotaped and then posted so that they can get kudos from everyone around.
