    Agreed. No doubt he's a strong dude but his article on how he was incorporating this shit showed that he doesn't really understand the different types of strength. ME and DE snatches? All Olympic lifts are inherently explosive.

    When I saw it, I was thinking to myself why? Why not use more weight, hang reps, and blocks, without the introduction of bands and chains?

    Yeah, I tend to agree with you guys on the olympic lifting.

    the top part of the snatch isnt something you want to get used to having chains and bands fucking snap around and shit. thats the hardest part of the lift not pulling to much and not pulling too little. seems like hes trying to be a little too much of a jack of all trades

    does he do a shrug at the top of his deadlift because that makes his clean stronger, or is that just how it's supposed to be done?

    A clean pull involves taking the bar using a clean grip and once you get to the top, it is not just a shrug, it is a full extension of your torso along with a "shrug" of the shoulders. Clean pulls > dead lifts.

    I for one am interested in seeing how his take on OL training pans out.

    I view it as more of an experiment than a defacto statement regarding his knowledge of strength.

    There is a difference between strength and power. PL have a lot of strength not much power. OL have massive power, but maybe not a equal amount of strength in comparison to a PL. Remember power=(force*distance)/time.

    his roots are in oly lifting, then he went on to become one of the best 220's ever in powerlifting

    And explosiveness is the derivative of power.

    Isn't physics fun!!

    you and most other olympic lifters are :hs:

    Whilst I admire trying to bring over concepts from powerlifting into olympic lifting, bands and chains are not a tool I would look too. The will fuck the very precise motor patterns required to perform such a technical lift. Perhaps he should try and use more of the programming from WSB, such as the methods that Pendlay uses in his training.

    thats very relative to the lifter. although powerlifting does give itself to strength since the lifts are way more grindable, plenty of lifters are more speed based than strength based. all good ol'ers have to be speed based since theres almost no intermediate parts on the lifts besides the squat recoveries. the best pl'ers are very strong and very explosive
