#GetTechnical // Timing, Control, and Bottom Position for Olympic Weightlifting

Posted on Posted in GetTechnical, Olympic Weightlifting

#GetTechnical with your control! Even though the lifts happen very quickly, in order to retrain certain aspects, we need to slow it down and exercise control.

In this video with one of our Remote Athletes, the bottom position is compromised due to a timing disconnect. Going back to the principles of the Overhead Squat, we want to always make sure to:
✅Plant feet flat on the ground
✅Squat with hips down and slightly back
✅Maintain balance!

If the lift is rushed or the timing is off, it can lead to:
🚫Squatting on the toes
🚫Knees driving too far forward
🚫Loss of balance
