Introduction to Weightlifting Tekkers SOS!
- An overview of what to expect from this course and how to best maximise results
- All fundamental principles addressed to ensure you have a good before ploughing on
- Understanding basic biomechanics and how best to generate force while being in the optimal positions to do so
- Fundamental positions that many take for granted and skip by without much thought. It is actually these principles that form the foundation for great lifting
- After completing this section you should have great awareness to be able to implement the techniques in the next sections
Warm-up / Stretch Routine
- The concept of a warm-up is one taken for granted by many and I’ve been shocked by many years of coaching people in person how few people actually know how to warm-up in a sports specific way. Often too embarrassed to ask for guidance and something many coaches take for granted. I provide a run through of some of the exercises I used to do and what I get my lifters to do to ensure they are ready to optimise the session.
- I walk you through a series of stretches post training to help with recovery and also show you a few examples of how to use a ‘roller’ effectively to stretch out those tight muscle groups associated with repetitive lifting including quads, hip flexors, hamstrings and glutes.
Module #4 & 5
Clean Technique & Common Errors
- Step-by step tutorial on how to perform all ‘Clean’ related exercises. These include the front rack position and drop drills to develop speed under the bar
- I cover Hang Cleans and then 1st Phase of the lift before bringing these components together to show you how to execute the Clean with effective and safe technique
- I also cover all assistance Cleans related exercise such as Cleans from Blocks, Cleans from Deficit, Power Cleans and other Clean variations
- Clean strength based exercises including Clean Deadlifts and Clean Deadlifts from Deficit
- Exactly which positions you need to be aiming for during each lift are identified
- Rationale behind ‘why’ particular positions are coached so you can really understand the logic in my coaching
- How to build from being a complete beginner to moving with technical precision
- Challenge the way you are currently lifting to monitor your movements and positions against a model that is biomechanically sound and safe!
