First things first, let’s learn how to Snatch and Clean & Jerk:



Often times, one of the biggest struggles for new lifters trying to perform the Olympic movements, is the ability to get into the necessary positions. Dr. Quinn Henoch, Founder of ClinicalAthlete, breaks down some simple but useful drills to improve your overhead squat and front rack positions.


One of the biggest factors in driving your success in Weightlifitng will be the strength of your legs and great squat technique will be a critical part of this. Check out our Pillars of Squat Technique series to improve your technique and be on your way to stronger legs and bigger lifts.
