that makes entirely sense from a physics point of view. Coach has told me I'd be better doing some kind of throw but why throw 5kgs when you can throw 150kgs over your head? it's just more badass
that doesn't make sense to me. Short/long limbs are usually meant in comparison to torso length. so.. short torso short limb.. I guess that means Naim. I'm talking more about 2 people of the same height. One with longer limbs(at least legs... long arms are almost useless in weightlifting) and one with shorter legs and longer torso. Wouldn't the one with longer legs have a small advantage in the snatch(distance wise)?
Then again I assume the one with shorter limbs probably can get a more powerful explosion so maybe in the end it doesn't make much difference.
I think it's kind of worth noting that rybakou seems pretty long limbed yet has one of the best snatches ever. His clean and jerk, not as good.
