Olympic Weightlifting Skills


Back to see Coach Chris after a layoff since about a week before Christmas.  His first words were something to the effect of, “We’re going to start back near ground zero”.

Workout:

Drop Snatch Press Behind the neck 5 x 3

Snatch Balance 3 x 4

Hang Snatch Drop + Overhead Squat 5 x 5

Transitional Deadlifts from a box (mid calf to mid thigh) 5 x 5

Good Mornings 5 x 3

I need to continue to work on flexibility in my ankles for better positioning in the bottom of the squat.  Also, to work on explosive “recruitment”, it was suggested I start working on “jumping” back squats with about 60% of 1 rep maximum, working on explosive jump up and speed of repetition. (approx 8 reps in 10 seconds).  Sucks getting old, and I’m not sure how much improvement I can make in this area.
