Can anyone describe what happens when the bar hits the thigh durring an olympic lift or olympic lift derivative
I think that only people very experienced at theses lifts do it.
I do not understand why you would want the bar to come in contact with the body.

I’m not sure I understand your question. The bar’s not supposed to hit the thigh during a clean, and you want to keep the bar close during the lift but its not supposed to come in contact with the body.
