For taller 6'+ individuals; does anyone recommend pushing the knees outwards (more so than pulling them back)? I see lots of Chinese lifters use this technique (although they are very far from 6 foot tall).
With my own limited experimentation, I have found that: while my back angle stays consistent through the first pull with both styles. By pushing my knees outwards (frog style) I feel that the bar has a more vertical path - and my torso is a few degrees more upright (butt is slightly lower). While the more traditional pull, pulling the knees straight backwards with the glutes/hammies, creates a more looping S bar path, a LESS upright torso (my butt is higher [not to be confused with hips coming up too fast, it remains constant]).. I also feel I get more velocity out of the bar at the finish... but it comes at a cost of being thrown more in an exaggerated S bar path - making it more difficult to receive.
Sorry for the rambling, it's hard to express my thoughts in writing. Thanks in advance for the input.
