Descriptions of Olympic-weightlifting movements are completely off. Instructor suggests cues to land on front of foot for hang power clean, when that will only happen if the bar is too far in front of the body and the lifter has to jump forward to receive the bar in the rack. None of the movements are completed from the legs, which is the purpose of all weightlifting movements (drive through legs to send bar up to shoulders, and whip under bar). Instead the video shows an aggressive double jump with no triple extension and an unnecessary bend of knees in the air. Second pull is too aggressive, making this more a careless upright row than anything. The terminology is not close to correct for the hang clean high pull/hang power clean or the snatch high pull. I think the reflects the age of the program, and the lack of knowledge in the sports field regarding the explosive lifts. I wish there were also a disclaimer as to the degree of technique teaching and performing these lifts requires. I have witnessed first hand coaches hurt clients with a poor understanding of the olympic lifts.
