Can you discuss why an athletes feet might slip/shuffle backwards after the explosion in snatch/clean pulls and push presses?

Hey Greg! Loving the content. You guys are fucking great. Got a quick question for you. On all my cleans and snatches my left foot winds up being placed with its toes much more turned out and canted to the left then my right foot. And when I bring it back in in the bottom of a squat it seems to fight to turn its toes back out. Any ideas you have or corrective exercises would be greatly appreciated. Thanks man!
Could be a lot of things all the way from the hip to the ankle. Best best is to work with a PT or chiro who understands weightlifting to try to diagnose. Short of that, I'd be doing extra ankle and hip mobility work and plenty of single leg exercises like 1-leg RDLs, step-ups, etc.

Hi Greg, Great content as always. A bit of an unrelated question to this specific podcast but what product do you recommend using to clean a barbell shaft / knurl / sleeves (not lubricate). I tried searching through the site as well as researching the topic and I think the general solution is either 3-in-1 oil or WD-40. Curious to get your feedback!
If it's simple cleaning, I'd stick to a wire brush. If you have to get rust off that the brush won't handle on its own, you'll have to try something more, but that would depend on if it's chromed, bare steel, stainless, etc., and I'm definitely not an expert on that. I've always had chromed Werksan, Eleiko, ZKC, etc bars and done nothing but very occasional wire brush (like every few years if that). If there's a bit of rust here and there, I honestly don't care. Doesn't affect the performance of the bar at all.
