Hey Greg I would like to get your opinion on Rudy Nielsons stufff. I know he is training his people for the games but it I have been following his stuff for about 2 weeks just to do something different and I like it. Do you have and thoughts on the matter? I pick and choose on his conditioning but I do like his strength waves

Hi Greg-
First, thanks for all of this. I've been training with you for 12 weeks now and have made gains of 23 lbs on my snatch and 35 lbs on my clean and jerk--both of which are nearing their next PRs. Second, today I was caught on camera with a terrible cresent moon shaped bar path in my snatch's second pull with the bar traveling far away from my body. My friend keeps yelling at me to "activate the lats!!" and even though I feel like I am, the bar is still traveling way far away. Can you help me with this? Any tips or skills to train to develop a close bar path to the body? As always, I appreciate anything you can offer.

Thanks again Greg,

Chad Lammert

Chad -



Sounds like you mean the third pull - pull under. Million things to say about that. Check the articles section for the article "improving the clean thruogh a better turnover" and apply that stuf to the snatch. Or my book has more info than you could ever want on it.
