#GetTechincal // The First Pull & Transition into the Hang Position for Olympic Weightlifting

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

#GetTechnical with your “first pull”! Here, we are looking at the transition that occurs between the starting position and the hang position at the knees. Using the legs tor drive through the floor when starting from the ground will show:

✅Mostly vertical shin position at the hang
✅Bodyweight transition from midfoot towards the heels
✅Shoulders directly on top of *OR* slightly in front of the barbell at the hang

Lack of leg drive can cause:
🚫Knees to remain too far forward in the hang
🚫Bodyweight & bar path trending forward
🚫Chasing and/or swinging of the barbell
