  1. Im 6’2 184lbs…. so yeah I am in the process of working on my Midline
    balance/strength during overhead squats before i even attempt to snatch

    I never looked into Olympic Lifts. I am going to watch all of your vids
    before i try with weight, But im gonna go practice with an empty bar.
    Awesome. Just wish i had an Olympic bar.

  3. I feel that my form for deads and squats are pretty good, and I still get
    lower back pain. I also golf a lot which I think is what irritates my back,
    which is then exacerbated by my lifting. I feel that even if I did not
    golf, my back would still experience some kind of pain. Is this something
    you go through with your athletes? If so, what do you recommend for them?

  4. K so I keep hitting near my pubic symphysis and it kind of hurts, so that
    just means I need to use a wider grip?

  5. I really like how you broke it down. I’m trying to learn how to do some of
    these power lifting techniques to increase my explosive power for Judo and
    this type of explanation has been the most helpful yet. Thanks.

  6. This is the Snatch lift. There is no power lifting (dead lift, squat, bench
    ) at all being done. Just trying to make sure your terms are correct. No
    hate here

  8. Man am I glad to read your admission. Im also glad the comments section
    gets to read this. Let it be known that bluemousedesign has discovered the
    universal way to train for the olympic lifts, and lifting in general. All
    other methods are necessarily inferior to his, and all the record holders
    and top level athletes have clearly robbed themselves of strength because
    they did not listen to you and trained with heeled shoes.

  9. Nevermind, sorted it. Widest grip possible will just about cut it. Good job
    I’m not 7’4″.

  10. thanks for this great detailed explanation. there re so many specialists
    here in this youtube….. they talk talk talk and talk, but teaches nothing!

    What the fuck is a catapult? You do not train an athlete to “be a catapult”
    you teach them to jump. Jumping has the kinematics involved in squat based
    exercises such as the clean, snatch etc. If you do not know what you are
    talking about then shush and stick to your CrossFit bollocks.
