Training Week 24/3/2014 – Drills in the warm up to improve full lifts

This is the training video for the week of 24/3/14. Decent enough week for the University guys. For the people competing at BUCS it’s the last week of a Preparation Cycle before they begin to taper. Peoples’ energy levels are down so Taps Aff training was needed for some. (It’s anabolic).

Notable PRs :

Ian 92.5kg Snatch // 160kg Front Squat – Beginning transformation to legit Freak Beast. Suck it Darwin.

Jordan: 127.5kg Clean PR (no Jerk)

Alejandro : 100kg Clean and money jerk

Nat: 90kg Back Squat

Dave : 205kg Front Squat

Drills help to enforce good habits before moving up to heavier weights. Below is an example of someone with a technical/motor control error and a simple drill to reinforce good behaviour before moving up to 90-100% on the snatch.

The Microphone hasn’t been used since my days of online gaming so no amount of Audacity saved the Audio I’m afraid.

It’s between the Coach and the athlete to find a cue/drill that works in each situation. There is no “one size fits all”.
