What is Olympic Lifting?
Consists of The Snatch and Clean & Jerk Lifts. Uses full body range of motion. Goal is to lift max weight to improve explosive power.
Start with feet under the bar, just under hip-width apart with toes pointing slightly outward, knees in line with toes, feet firmly planted into the ground. Place hands wide and use hook grip, into almost squat position, hips above knees, back flat, arms straight with arms rotated forward, shoulder blades locked together, shoulders in line with bar and knees.
Keep chest up and head looking forward, keeping spine in line.
Slowly pull bar up to knee height, extending through knees keeping hip and back position, bar in line with shoulders.
Extend in upward explosive motion, bar reaching hip crease, use power through hips to help upward rise with bar, extend more onto tip toes.
Continuation of explosive upward motion, pull the bar close to the body, lead up with elbows doing a high pull.
