Plus, it reinforces some of the cues you can use while coaching your son. My kid's seemed to benefit from seeing someone other than their lameass Dad demonstrate the various techniques.

    Is Cody in Vibram 5-fingers or some other type of "barefoot" shoe? If so, why?

    Perhaps a wider stance would help to reduce amount of knee travel?

    It might, if the stance was too narrow, and it's not.

    UH OHHHH, maybe they are some type of really cool lifting shoe we have never heard of with an invisible heel and the ability to move one's toes freely. I still don't think I'd wear them though, I don't want people knowing I am a hipppie.

    I second the SS DVD. I've had numerous instances where I just haven't been able to get someone to properly do a movement. If we're not making any progress, I'll force the person to watch the entire relevant chapter on the SS DVD. It has immensely helped every time.

    In one instance, I wasn't able to get someone to do even a halfway decent power clean. It was pretty bad. After watching the chapter on the DVD, and with no additional input from me, his power clean immediately improved to what I'd call decent.

    You're right, I just ordered it.

    He doesn't have lifting shoes, and these have no cushion in the sole. I thought that would be better than his sneakers.

    Does he have some work boots? Those are better than nothing or sneakers.

    I thought the same thing. But I guess we're wrong.
