It’s not all about the hips (Via http://adamsarson.com/2013/06/10/happy-gilmore-gifs/)

I am afraid that Chubbs had it wrong in Happy Gilmore.  He was right about so much of life, golf and the horrible nature of alligators, but when it comes to weightlifting, the mantra “it’s all in the hips” just isn’t correct.

No, weightlifting isn’t “all about the hips” it is all about those hips and knees.

If you jump forward on a lot of lifts or just  want to see what I am talking about, check it out below in this short video.
