This piqued my concern:
"I watched a video of one of my meet pulls and realized that it took me
a full 11 seconds to pull from the time that I first contacted the bar.
As a result, I lost every shred of help I could get from the
stretch-shortening cycle (the elastic energy of which takes several
seconds to dissipate completely) present from my drop to the bar."
Suffice to say, I'll be pulling much more promptly from now on.
Today, I just did several stretching regimens in preparation for tomorrow.
