Split Clean technique?
Hi everyone, looking for some advice regarding split cleans, just tried them out today for the first time and they felt ok but I have a few questions about them. I understand that this is old style lifting but I thought I should give it a go, just out of curiosity.
1. Is the feet and leg position for the catch the same as for a jerk?
2. If anyone does this exercise, what is the best way to dump the bar, if I miss the catch of the clean to prevent the bar crashing down on my knee?
3. Anyone know of any good lifters of the past, or present, that may have videos on Youtube that I can look at?
I also found the transition into doing jerks, much easier than in the past when doing cleans and then jerks.
Any help would be appreciated
