Emphasis: “Get under the bar with a purpose”
What in your day do you perform with a real purpose? If you train in
Olympic Weightlifting, getting under the barbell is one of them.
Saturday we’ll work on one of the finer points in O-lifting which is the
point just before receiving the barbell, or the turnover. The turnover
occurs after the legs/hips/and torso have done the majority of the work to
get the bar from the floor, past the athlete’s center of mass and in a
split second, get ready to control its descent. Many lifters possess the
strength to lift the barbell to its proper height, but not nearly as many
possess the skill and precision to accurately place it in a position where
it can accurately be received.
With the right mindset and without fear of failure/success, each lift has
the potential to be a masterpiece only if you perform it with a purpose.
**check out the picture: the only way this man will get under this 508 lb
clean is with purpose (and a certain level of violence). We’ll help you
apply this to your training.
**beginners: Please don’t hesitate to come. This stuff is fun and we
cater to students of ALL skill levels. You will improve on your first day
and hopefully learn something about the Iron game you hadn’t even know to
Snatch and Clean: “Bottoms Up”
Saturday we’ll work on what a good “bottom position” means to Olympic
A good bottom position can be the difference between making and missing a
PR lift. A less than desirable bottom position can be the difference in
becoming injury prone, inconsistent, and inefficient with your training.
Or a good one can help you become accustomed to training for years without
major difficulty. Don’t begin or labor through these skills with bad
habits, this is where good coaching comes in.
Saturday we will work on both lifts with an extra emphasis on how to
descend/ascend in and out of the bottom position (barbell in tow) with
maximum efficiency for YOUR body!
