#GetTechnical // Minimizing Movement and Solidifying the Pulls for Olympic Weightlifting

Posted on Posted in GetTechnical, Olympic Weightlifting

In this case, we are getting some excessive movement during lift off due a delay in setting tight for the beginning of the lift.

Before pulling the barbell off the ground, we must solidify the body to move as one unit. By engaging before liftoff, the lifter can:
✅Reduce any unnecessary movement
✅Reduce stress on the body
✅Protect the lower back

When we don’t set properly and there is excessive movement through the start of the pull, the lifter may experience:
❌Improper positioning
❌Trying to catch up with the barbell
❌Uneven stress on the body

Set, pull, GO!
