The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Power clean form question

    Is there a rule of thumb where the barbell has to be at your knee caps first before you do the shrug + jump?

    Generally the jump should be when the bar gets mid thigh height/your lap before the jump. You shurg at full calf extension to pull yourself under the bar. Dont be weary to let it turn into a squat clean either.

    Keep the knees back and stay over the bar. Use back extension to raise the bar to mid-thigh, using the lats to keep the bar tucked back behind the shoulders. At mid-thigh, jump like hell and pull under.
