Default The Rock and Roll Drill

http://www.pendlay.com/The-Rock-and-...ill_df_59.html

I am hounding Don about supplying us with a video demo, but, based on the pictures in the book, this is a damn good drill. I have attempted to use it myself after Don explained it to me, and I believe it works as advertised.

What do you guys think?

Glenn,

I'll get this up on utube in the next day or two. Look for Don McCauley/Rock and Roll.

And, of course, it teaches the lifter not to stall at extension and to keep the bar, as much as possible, over the base of support throughout.

Don,

I just popped in your DVD again to watch the Rock and Roll drill. A couple of points:

1) I know you said you want this drill to teach someone do drive through the heels. Do you also think it's likely to teach someone to do as Anthony does, and hop back a bit? I ask because when trying it out, if I'm really conscious of launching the 2nd pull off the heels as I return to the launch point, then I naturally hop back during the drill.

2) Anthony is a MONSTER! Is he still competing?

3) I laugh pretty loud every time I see you (literally) drill his shoes into the floor! ... but it sure does make the point!

Nick,

The initiation of the 2nd pull in the drill is from the rear feet and balance proceeds slightly forward onto the forefeet as extension is completed. Whether the lifter doing an actual lift goes to the forefeet at initiation, raising the heels, starts on the rearfeet and goes the the forefeet and rises
onto them or simply stays flat-footed, has a lot to do with individual strengths and lengths and gymnastic ability.

In the book, I talk about the tilted S. That pull line will always lead to jumping back a bit. Also, Anthony is one of those lifters that starts on the heels at the Set and his whole goal from the start is to drive up and back. So, of course, that will cause a rear jump to receiving position. I do think the pull to the rear is for many lifters, going to be a more efficient pull.

Anthony is not actively training but helps me when I give clinics. I always like the looks on people's faces when they "feel" his speed.

Yeah, I like screwing shoes into the floor.
