I have to agree. Some really bad technique.

How the hell do people get the jobs they do. My high school kids squat better, clean better, and SPOT better. What a mockery of our professions.

Maybe that's the reason why USC has been winning the battle with UCLA. USC ex-strength coach comes from the Hatch System - Tech, Bar speed, Then increase lbs = Wins.

Bruce, I think we spoke the same words, only I listed that same quote under the Georgia video.

Some what, it's always the long term development and safety of the young athlete. Try working with NFL players and letting them have shitty tech, you are asking for a major injury then you be looking for a different career. LOL

It's all about the number under the "W" column at the end of the season that truly matters.

I think all strength and conditioning coaches need to spend some time with Coach Hatch and properly learn how to teach the ol's. It really scares me when I see athletes catching the bar the way these young athletes were in this video. Once again, tech, bar speed, then increase weight.

people underestimate just how much help it really is even if you barely touch the bar. if you're a numbers driven program then i guess you do what you have to to get the numbers up. but i agree, to me, these really arent "true" numbers.

All too often this is the tech I see in many NCAA weight rooms, half squats, hands on the bar, bad power clean tech. Tech, Bar speed, then add weight!!!!

A lot of hands on bars and chests. Some doubt of true lifts. But, great effort and enthusiasm. What you want in a program.
