Take a look at some of this technique and let me know what you think.
As far as technique goes, we should all be happy they don't perform any weightlifting at the combine -- I shudder to think at some of the hang/power clean technique we might see.
As an aside -- does anyone know how much the NFL regulates what sort of clothing/equipment lifters are allowed to wear? I wonder, for example, if some athletes can/do wear undershirts that provide some assistance in the lift.
Agree. But let's remember, your best benchers have short arms. Your best lineman have very long arms. So benches are not inherently "bad". But making decisions on performance based on that lift alone would be shortsighted.
I also find it amazing how poor the technique is for many of these guys. They go to combine prep camps you'd think they'd be near perfect. It appears a lot of "guru's" are better salesmen than teachers.
VERY impressive -- I'm certainly not disparaging the effort; I just wonder why there is so much speculation about how just ONE test can predict future greatness.
