I get asked a lot what it takes to improve on the Olympic lifts. My answer is always…TIME. Without the time and patience to consistently work on these lifts the road to PR’s will be a very long, bumpy and frustrating one. While it will take time to develop and refine technique for the Snatch and Clean and Jerk there are some crucial points to remember when tackling these movements in the gym and I believe Gregg Everett explains these points very well in this article http://www.catalystathletics.com/articles/article.php?articleID=129. Give it a read and try to keep these points in mind as you continue to work toward improvement on the Olympic lifts. Happy Lifting!
