Developing Explosive Hips

This is a slight variation on a fundamental ancillary lift - The Split Hang Clean Pull provides a stable platform to develop explosive hips along with a staggered stance to accelerate the transferability from training into the real world

The idea here is to show three separate videos and focus on a positive and also an area we'd like to improve upon.  As you can see there are multiple things during each rep that each athlete is doing well and not so well.  These are variations of movements that are Olympic sports - in other words... strive for perfection with the intension of achieving excellence.  My cues are based on what I think would be most vital to improving technique and the subsequent transferability to high performance for sport (in this case rugby).  So, don't get all miffed by trying to correct everything for every lift - pick one facet, just one small area you'd like to improve; and focus on one cue that can help you do it better.
I trust these short clips will help you cue yourself or athletes you train to get 1% better everyday!

  1. Giz, good videos. I think this format may be something that you might want to continue in the future. A lot of people can teach the lifts, but a lot of those same people can't correct little things like that. Great stuff. Applicable for every coach. I like it. Hope all is well in the windy city.
