Olympic Weightlifting Skills


Tonight was our second visit with the USAW coach at the Cincinnati Weightlifting Club.  We continued to work on skills related to the Snatch movement.  Tonight’s skills focused more (for me) on shoulder positioning and keeping the core tight and trying to maintain active arms during the pull.

It was plenty hot and humid in the gym, so we were dripping all over the bar and drenched by the time we left, but admittedly, it felt pretty danged good.  Other than a bit of frustration in not getting some positioning and timing right, I like working on the movements.  Already, I’m feeling the results of holding new positions in my legs, back, shoulders, and arms…. just not used to holding and achieving certain movements yet, but it will come!!
