Description

In this session, participants will learn how to execute and coach/cue the key Olympic lifts. Attention will be paid to proper setup, performance and scalability for the squat and press progressions, and we will analyze the proper technique and progression principles behind the snatch and clean and jerk. We'll also focus on athletic readiness as well as the biomechanics associated with power positions and lifts. If you work with athletes and weekend warriors, this is a must attend session.
