Default Klokov pulling one foot forward.

Notice in this video that Klokov pulls with one foot forward.

Anyone noticed this before, and have any idea why?

Thanks to 5kg for the topic.

In relation to Klokov's odd foot positioning, I just found this which makes sense:



I have the same issue and I suspect many do. If I try to exactly line up my feet, I have back issues. I have always suspected leg length to be the culprit.

Over time, we develop movement patterns based on many anthropomorphic reasons. Trying to adjust "may" be possible but, in many cases, it is unlikely to be effective and also counter-productive. Good judgement is the key here, I think. Try to fix imperfections but understand that some are just part of how we're put together.

Yeah I with 5 kg, when I was doing a lot of oly lifting I would get a lot of strains and small tears ect. I would have to train around them, so foot placement, hand placement on the bar, would change from time to time. For me, one arm is slightly shorter than the other, so when snatching, I would have one arm in closer by about a inch or so compared to the other or else I would twist my back or pull my shoulder down when I hit the power.

I see things a bit differently. If you do the lift with staggered the way you pull is a little more back IMO. When doing a full depth snatch the bar ends up behind where it started. Maybe he is adjusting for this difference in bar path and trying to build the muscles that pull that way.

Just my view.

He does so many reps per day with such close coaching, this won't be an accident. Good call on leg length.

looks like the bar is turned as much as the foot is "misaligned" i.e. a visual illusion...

if not, it's probably hip tension or some other lack of symmetry, etc.

After my back surgery, my PT said "when you walk up to the urinal, check your foot stance...you'll tend to have one foot wide or turned out, etc. due to your spine issues."

I considered that as well and watched several of his vids to check; and I'm not entirely sure but does anyone else notice that his right leg (the one that takes the more backward foot placement) appears to have more curvature in the lower limb/knee/thigh area? That may just be me, seeing things as I haven't looked out for it a lot but on occasion it looks like there is quite a curve going on in the leg line in relation to the other leg.

If you watch here and pause at 0:36 secs, you'll notice the exact same foot pattern:

I do something similar on squats and pulls. My hips are badly misaligned which causes my left leg to be about an inch and a half shorter than the right. As my hips are worked into the correct positioning, my stance becomes more normal

Just curious, do you stand with the shorter or the longer leg slightly more forward positioned?

Shorter leg is a little more forward and that foot is turned out a little more. Longer leg is further out to the side, making my knees end up at about the same place.
