    How much tougher is the log clean compared to using the barbell?

    So you are basically cleaning it in two seperate motions? Weird. Doesn't sound like there'd be much carryover between log cleans and using the barbell.

    And the Axel looks like a pain in the ass. Definately not something I ever plan on trying.

    Damn this is the most informative and helpful video I've ever seen on oly lifts.

    EDIT: hell, on just about anything. This rivals the EFS videos in helpfulness, just with a different focus.

    at about 12:10 into the video he discusses proper hand/arm positioning for cleans/front squats. Every time I've read something on this board regarding them (haven't really tried them to be honest) everybody says to keep the elbows up.

    This guy states that arms should be at about a 45 degree angle with your body in order to "create a pocket" and to be in the optimal position.

    Ceaze, do you happen to know what video this is taken from or could you point me in the right direction of the entire film? I might want recommend this to the coaches at my old high school or at least link them to this video.

    if youre new to the lifts you have to focus and accentuate keeping the elbows up so that during the front squat you dont dump forward or hold the weight in your hands at all

    the video they have up there now in their video articles section on a c&j progression warmup is fairly horrible. once the dude moves to a full hang clean its pretty gnarly like gets under by moving legs out to the side etc. this ones the best

    yeah barbell cleaning is harder. different technique and all. on vacation in hawaii, there were was an NFL spring meeting and at the workout room there were guys cleaning barbells (85 pounds in each hand). i was fortunate to meet la'roi glover:bowdown:

    a lot of it is technique. the more i stuck my ass out, and let my arms dangle like a rubber band, the more i was able to clean. 2 weeks ago i was barley able to clean 175. i changed my form from watching my teammates and from what my coach was telling me.

    i figured out my first prob, thx to that awesome vid. im not flexible enough. my hands come no where near my shoulder at the top position, even with weight bearing down. i can feel the tightness in my arms and across my back.

    gonna work on flexibility, and try snatches in the meantime...

    lol if youre not flexible enough to do c&j you have no chance on the snatch
