Q & A with Greg Everett

Joint Angles For The Olympic Lifts?

Marko Asks: I have a question that bothers me for a couple of weeks now:  Some coaches like to prescribe numbers for the angle in the first pull.  Like 40 degree back angle from the floor until above the knee in the  clean. Do you think that's useful? If so, what angles do you like to  see? How does this approach take body types into account?
