Coach do you specifically drill the the double knee bend? I have heard that USA weightlifting will start to include teaching the double knee bend spefically in there coaching courses. What drills do you like for this? Happy thanksgiving.

i teach jump and land. that is the dbl knee bend. i also believe that once the bar gets to the mid thigh area and my hips start to extend that the knees rebend automatically....causing the dbl knee bend aka scook....aka transition. it just happens when one thinks......JUMP, EXPLODE OR WHATEVER YOUR QUE IS. one must not horizontally drive the hips but rather vertically drive the hips. good luck
