"All pulling is pushing through the heels..."

"All pulling is pushing through the heels" is a quote from strength athlete Dan John (if you don't know who he is check out his website or his videos on YouTube).  This is a great quote because it sets the foundation for everything from the Deadlift to the Snatch.  It precludes any pulling with the arms or shoulders (which is a common mistake made by one and all) and puts the pull where it is supposed to be - in the posterior chain.  The following video is from 2009 and I would warrant a guess that Dan would possibly modify the quote to be "Grip the bar like you were choking it and all pulling is pushing through the heels."
