Jumping the weight, with Coach Burgener
Remember, your arms are like ROPES. There is a split second when you FINISH the pull, and the bar is weightless – that precise moment is when you have to drive your body down under the barbell. Check out the photo below and pay close attention to the three middle frames. Look at the height of the barbell – it’s the same in all three frames. These three frames show that exact moment when the bar is weightless (floating), and the athlete is driving down under the barbell. Cool, right?
Notice too, Gwen did not continue to pull the bar up – she instead drove her body down, using her arms like ropes. If you pull the bar up more with your arms, you lose all your power. Do not be afraid to get down under the barbell.
