Sweet video, great work, Aimee

What software are you using to produce your vids? Final cut express? Pro? I'm not happy with the videos i put out yet, partly because i just started doing it, cheap camera($180) and no real experience, but i'm learning...

Final cut express - pro doesn't add anything worthwhile to the mix.

Interesting stuff. Quit trying to point your elbows backward overhead - point them halfway between backward and down - that's killing your oh position and probably a large contributor to your soft elbow problem.

Hi Greg. I'm a CrossFitter in Virginia Beach and I regularly keep up with your website. Fantastic work! I have a question you could maybe help with. I notice with a lot of experienced lifters that they sit way back before initiating the first pull. Does this action actually begin the force production of the lift or is there another purpose?

Thanks natalie! Tell your dad to bring you in June when your daddy comes to the seminar!

Ron -

In some cases, that sitting back is just a preparatory position before the lift; in others, it's part of a dynamic start. In the former case, it has no effect on the lift; in the latter, it may have some effect, depending on how it's done.

Generally those who use a dynamic start do it for the purpose of either eliciting a stretch-shortening cycle to assist the lift off the floor (this would be the quick versions), or to generate more tension before lift-off by stretching the muscles (this would be the slow versions). However, in some cases, it's simply a weird habit that helps people get into their starting positions better (e.g. AImee Anaya).

Happy Birthday, Jade! You are a balance-beam-handstand-superstar! See y'all on Monday. Hubby's coming too. Hope Greg's ready to play. Hugs!

Greg,
What brand of racks are those in the background of the video? I need some for my basement :)

Thanks for the help!

They're the new Werksan racks.

As usual nice training video, you have good editing skills, always good music, super clear picture and tight editing :).

Greg,
Not sure if you're checking this comment page, but what's the album name for the track on this video?
Thanks for the help

Derek -

Not sure - Someone gave me a burned CD of it from almost 10 yrs ago.
