feel like you need just a little bit more height when you're going for those heavy lifts?
once the athlete establishes good positioning, good tempo, and a good jump up and back, and i see that they missed the lift by a little bit - the next step is to make sure they are continuing to give vertical momentum on the bar via a big shrug and a big high pull.
notice the difference between jonathan's first and second lift.
he missed the first, and the only thing he changed to make the second lift was to add this aggressive shrug and pull. and all of a sudden he made the lift - the same weight - with lots of room to spare.
and it was beautiful! a beautiful form, heavy weight, a beautiful lift.
happy athlete, happy coach, happy everyone all around
