Typical Advanced Olympic Weightlifting Clinic Outline
Mastering the Pull (Snatch and Clean & Jerk)
- Training the key positions and bar path for optimal lifting
- Perfecting your starting position for each lift
- Mastering the transition phase – what it is and how to negotiate it successfully
- Teaching you exercises to develop a stronger pull
Mastering the Squat Under (Snatch and Clean & Jerk)
- Mastering “meeting the bar” – what it is and how to execute it successfully
- Working on speed and elbow position in the transition from pull to catch
- Training on drills to enable you to complete a full squat clean and squat snatch
Mastering the Overhead Position (Overhead Squat and Jerk)
- Extensive work on getting the bar overhead, and keeping it there
We will also go over programming – teaching you how to incorporate an Olympic lifting / strength program into your regular CrossFit or other sport routine to help increase your overall strength, speed, and power.
There will be an hour at the end to work on the skills you learned and attempt some new PR’s! Coaches will be able to give you video feedback on your technique during this time!
