As I understand the hang position being above the knee, does that mean the mid-hang would be about mid-shin? For some reason mid-hang makes me think mid-thigh.

Ryan, I was just reading about this in Greg's new book. "The mid-hang starting position will place the bar at mid-thigh with the knees and hip back, the shoulders slightly in front of the bar, the back set in absolute extension, and the weight just in front of the heels."

I guess mid-shin would be the floor, huh. Thats what a coleg edjukashun does to heitin intalect and intuishun.

Holding the wide grip overhead position for overhead squats is absolute murder on my left wrist. It seems to have gotten worse over time, and my right wrist does just fine.

Any thoughts or suggestions? It's gotten so that doing OHS and Snatch is just too painful.

Jeff - Narrow your grip for now until it's tolerable and gradually widen it as your wrist(s) get better conditioned and more mobile. Spend a lot of time pre-workout doing wrist mobility work and stretching, shake out the wrists and stretch between every set, and stick your hand in a bowl of ice water for 5 min or so after every training session, and a couple times throughout the day if you can.
