Good article, simple and concise at what goes on, and actually one of the better explanations.

A little aside about how much the bar sweeps in. It's interesting to note about "taller" lifters and limb lengths is that it's not really the height. It's actually the relationship between the femur and tibia. The longer the tibia is relative to the femur (e.g. Vardanyan) the further that bar is starting away from you in order to make room to clear the knees better.

Brian,

Agreed. I usually include the dkb in the 1st pull but that's just me. The dkb is usually put in a place of its own as a transitional movement by most coaches.

And, Vardanyan was a beast, as well as a human spider.

I think I agree with you that the 1st pull doesn't really end until the hips.

I see the pulls occurring somewhat on a continuum. You don't reach the end of the 1st and that's that for it and then it's just the 2nd and so on. On a good lift they are all blended together pretty well.
