My understanding of his opinion is that he thinks it's a waste of time when he could get the same results doing other exercises that are easier to coach:Jungledoc wrote:Yeah. Isn't Joe actually opposed to using cleans? Or at least opposed to teaching them to people who aren't specifically wanting to do O lifts?

My personal experience is that I don't see a lot of O-lifting there. Kettlebell snatches, sure, jumps, yeah, all the explosive stuff you see in my workouts and a few even I don't do (although there aren't a lot). I'm sure they'd teach me if I asked, I'm paying for the training, but I don't care how they train me as long as my mat strength goes up.
