    Wow, awesome site. I just checked one of the videos out (power clean) and i was very impressed. I like that vid better than the one they use for CF.

    Not probably the best for watching form, but there are clips here too: http://www.chidlovski.net/liftup/e_movie_theater.asp
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    I agree that some of the CF workouts dont show correct form but the specific lift videos of the hang clean, hang power clean, etc., are broken down pretty well. I could have been more specific as to which vids showed proper form, but i really didnt think it was necessary. I was just pointing him into a direction where he could look up some of the lifts and its components.

    That being said the ones at hatchdome are much better.
