just clean n jerk and ancillary lifts recently (front squats, rows, overhead press), its an explosive movement so applies better to basketball than powerlifts prob, also its so technical which is fascinating to me love to work on the form, u cn just do cleans too to get started prob easier than trying to learn both parts at once

one cool thing about the clean is the basic movement is jumping, and then youre transferring that energy into the bar, so a lot of the form u can figure out just based on whats the best way to jump

its a violent action tho so start out real light and concentrate on form not how much u cn yoink up otherwise its a pretty big injury vector

Nice I used to do cleans minus the jerk part so I could prob handle it. What I really need is to improve my footwork. I used to have post moves and now it’s just me pivoting and pump faking while my defender kind of slowly moves along with me

taking very long steps is something thats worked for me, whether in a euro configuration or just straight line drive, seems to throw defenders off

I’m just mastering the old man fade away

old men dont fade away, old men up and under

fake the fadeaway while posted up and then up n under is nearly impossible for avg pickup game defender to stop. you can cover so much ground even w/o having your dribble.

nothing better than hitting randoms at the gym with an up and under over and over.
