Grana has been good for me. I'm about 5'9 and wear the larges for a relaxed fit with a larger neck hole

Lifting seminar with Sheiko and Koklyaev

 

 

Regarding technique, they favor leading with the hips, maintaining vertical shins, and not looking down in the squat, wide grip and arching during bench, and for deadlifts they favor conventional for proportionally long limbed people and sumo for the opposite builds. 

 

Highlights are Koklyaev saying not to hold the back "like a cucumber" during squats and slapping a girls ass (31:00).

my new fav tees are fruit of the loom extra heavy pocket t- shirts, really boxy but the shape works out magically if pulled when wet. Im 6´4 and wearing an XL.

Day after this seminar, I went to CSA (gym in the video) to check out a PL meet. Was hoping to see Sheiko and Misha but they were already gone. Pretty much everyone else in the video was there tho.

Oh yeah that seminar was $350 uhoh.gif

Damnnnn. What determine if the lifter is jerking with a close or the split stance? Build? Personal preference? I love watching OL but I'm far from knowledgeable on the different point of view on techniques.

I suppose you mean why choose the power jerk (e.g. david in the above clip, and pyrros dimas) over the split jerk?

Personal preference, as there are few practical reasons to favor it, if the lifter is equally proficient in both styles. The power jerk doesn't have much margin for error w.r.t where you put the bar - if you drive the bar forwards or backwards, you'll lose it. A split jerk allows for a bit of fumbling here, as you have much better balance and can compensate if the bar is driven slightly off-position overhead.

The most mechanically efficient technique is the squat jerk, where you'll have to drive the bar upwards the least, when compared to the previous two. However, it is even more demanding than the power jerk, since you can't compensate for any error in bar placement. Moreover you need pretty massive leg strength to be able to stand up with your max C&J not once, but twice.

Still, even if you only split jerk, the power jerk is a very good assistance exercise for the split jerk. Because it's so unforgiving, it teaches you to drive the bar straight up. Squat jerks are also good to do, especially if your shoulder mobility is lacking.

Myself I prefer either snatching with a clean grip or doing a drop snatch complex, with 1 drop snatch with a clean grip and 2-3 squats after. Sorry for the lengthy poast.

how bad is butt wink? I have a slight tuck, less so if I consciously tighten my abs at the bottom and right before coming up. I've been squatting as low as I can for a long time now and it would feel very awkward to not go as low. I'll try to take a video asap. I'm worried cuz I've been experiencing aching in my lower back, I think gluteus medius, when standing for a long time, but only the right side, could be my posture. (I think) I have an exaggerated lumbar curve.

You should be bracing your abs, obliques, and lower back as hard as possible during the entire motion. Buttwink puts your spine in a compromised position where you a) can injure yourself more easily b) lose power . Stop squatting so deep and fix your pelvic position. This will likely correct your spinal position

Don't squat deeper than your mobility allows you to.
It would help a lot to see a video. In many cases butt wink is an effect of bad technique or angles.

fuck the fucking "butt wink". My coach wouldn't even know what this shit means.

Looking like the best place we've found is a 3br on Elizabeth and Grand just north of Chinatown. NYC brahs, what's your opinion on this location? That seems to be the only sticking point for me.

That's an awesome location. If the price is right and the apt is cool go for it.

I kind of like the Lower East Side myself, probably not the most "finance-y" location.  I think I stayed at the Best Western on that street like 5 years ago, still kind of Chinatown, IMO
