#GetTechnical // Hinge into the Hang Position for Olympic Weightlifting

Posted on Posted in GetTechnical, Olympic Weightlifting

When we are doing positional practice, reinforcing the basics will yield the greatest returns. In this instance with one of our Remote Athletes, we have a small correction needed in the hang position. In the hang, we must make sure that:

✅We hinge from the hip (bend over)
✅Shoulders are AHEAD of the barbell
✅Barbell is against the body

Common errors in the hang position usually result from:
🚫Squatting down into position (sitting, not bending)
🚫Shoulders being directly over or behind the barbell
🚫Barbell separating from the body
