Kind of like enjoyed it Boris.
Jump stretch band, I might incorporate it in various situations(including teaching).

Music's kind of my favorite. Police Academy series "Blue Oyster Bar" dancing music it is.

I started power clean training recently and this video was just the ticket.

I can see why many folks bag power clean training due to this difficult rack position but I intend on mastering it.

Again thanks for great video!
