Knees Out in Pulls

Ever wondered why people yell out “knees out in pulls”?

If you watch an elite lifter in slow motion, you’ll soon be impressed by the mastery they display over the barbell. What you will also note, is that true masters pull the bar straight up, moving their body with precision around and with the bar. It’s important to note that lifters come in all shapes and sizes, with different anthropometrics. Everyone is built uniquely with a different set of limb and body lengths.

Because of these differences person to person, the way everyone achieves a straight bar path differs. Knees out in the snatch and clean is a cue that a lot of coaches use. It’s important to know why though. In this video Rhe shows us when and how the cue can be beneficial.
