I dont know at what point in the clean this picture was taken, so i will assume it is the 2nd pull. Her weight moved forward to the ball of her foot too early, correct?

She should be driving off of her heels until the last split second. Was this lift a hit or miss? Am I incorrect in my assumption on where she was in the movement? Just wondering.
Greg Everett 2010-03-22
Max - Yes, second pull. Yes, she's slightly farther forward over the feel than I would like, but it's really minor. She doesn't have to actually be totally flat-footed at this point - she may have the pressure on the balls of her feet as long as her weight is still farther back over the foot. In other words, I'd be satisfied if you took her and the bar as a whole and tilted the unit backward a few degrees.

Will this whole seminar be available on dvd? I hope so because that clip kicked ass!

I got the shirt from Lon Kilgore. He had a few made for something.

Great clip, sounds like it was a very useful and practical seminar.

Not to stir controversy, but I was just contrasting that bit of Gant's lecture with the recent "At the Chalkboard" series in the CFJ. Gant has a clear logical framework and I learned something in 5 minutes. The Chalkboard series (if not satire, I can't tell) is meaningless psychobabble about nothing. I haven't seen anything legit in the CFJ other than some of Coach Burgener's videos lately. Shame.

To be fair, I got bumped up to an earlier time slot in the program. That clip was from Saturday afternoon. If I had gone on Sunday, as planned, I would have been sufficiently plowed and made no sense whatsoever.
Will 2010-03-24
I second Ben. I would love to see this seminar available on DVD I would buy this up is a second. I wanted to make the seminar, but it was the same day as the SoCal Sectionals so I wasn't able to.

Is the BBS sold out?
