Part of being a good coach is about being able to unpack movements – Seeing the components in isolation and adjusting the programming to match. ⠀⁣⁣

This course will help you to safely and effectively assess, correct and progress an athlete with no prior knowledge or experience with the snatch and clean and jerk to become a proficient and accomplished lifter.

By focusing on fundamental skills and qualities of the key lifts and their derivatives it is possible to gain competency in Olympic lifting rapidly and achieve a great return on the investment for athletic progress and adaptation with your clients.

In this course, we will take you through the theory behind how we utilize and deconstruct the Snatch, Clean and Jerk with athletes and general fitness clients from a range of backgrounds.

In the second component of the course we take a group of coaches of various skill levels from teaching drills with the broomstick all the way to explosive loaded power training with plenty of usable variations, common pitfalls and training/programming hacks along the way.
