First, GOOD LUCK to the CF7 10K team!!! Your registration packets have arrived, and Curtis will get them to you on Saturday morning. Meet him at the start line in order to get your packet.
Second, for everyone attending the Sat. 9am class, the 10K course will affect your commute to CF7 Saturday morning. Parts of 7th St. and Carroll St. will be blocked off for the race. Click here for the race course and plan your alternate route to CF7.
Olympic lifting is simply complicated. Simple in the sense that there is only one path the bar is supposed to take, and complicated in the sense that there are only 5,000 things that can go wrong in moving the bar in said path. And every single one of us has been told at one time or another, “STAY BACK.”
One major key to a good Olympic lift is the start position – if you start forward, you will end forward. You have to learn to lift every snatch and clean exactly the same way from the ground, staying back and driving through those heels. And keep in mind, the only difference between the snatch and clean is the position of your hands on the barbell; the pull from the ground and the position of the bar path is the same in both lifts. (When you practice snatch deadlifts above, really dial in those positions from the floor and the path of the bar!)
The weight is always going to try and pull you forward. Don’t help it out by starting forward and not staying back. Focus today on STAYING BACK and firing those hamstrings to generate a strong finish.
