Happy New Year everyone!!
Thanks mate. The jumping was just me doing exactly the drills Coach Pendlay has on the Calstrength site. That's the bit that really confuses me. So you're saying it shouldn't be a jump but more of a powerful hip thrust and the bar should make contact with the hips? If so, logically this would translate into the bar going out. How do I make sure that the momentum is mostly vertical?
I was actually thinking about moving my shoulders further forwards when I was doing it but it did feel a bit awkward. I'll try out the tip tomorrow mate, thanks!
Yes I'm in England, I use my university sports gym since it's free for scholars. But depending on where Koing is I'd love to go visit, I'm up north!
Also, I notice you're both from California. I got accepted to a year exchange at University of California next year! I can't wait!!
