Olympic Lifting Review

At the Olympic lifting class on Tuesday, we discussed some terminology with regards to the clean and snatch. I think everyone could benefit from knowing what all those terms mean. Click the example to see the movement in action.

Hang – refers to the start position (dip between top of knees and mid-thigh). Example – Hang Clean

High Hang – refers to the start position (dip above mid-thigh). Example – High Hang Clean

Power – refers to the landing position (anything above a squat) Example – Power Clean

Squat – refers to the landing position (anything below a squat) Example – Squat Clean

Muscle – pulling a bar into position without landing (stiff legs at the top) Example – Muscle Clean

Split – refers to the landing position (when legs split into a lunge) – Example – Split Clean

“Nail It”

With a 10 minute time cap, accumulate as much time as possible in a plank.

Great extension on the snatch shrug

    I tried texting you..but I don’t think it sent. Sorry for the late notice, but I won’t be in this morning. Little miss must be hitting another growth spurt which results in me getting up a lot last night. Sorry for the late notice. M

    Would love to have hit 10 min but my arms were already shaking at 30 seconds so was happy to get past 5min when I went down the first time. Tired today – must be the ghost of deck-of-death!!

    Not a PR because I didn’t look at the right number from last time. I had taken everything apart when I realized this. Sigh.

    WOD: 5:03
    Definitely room for improvement….

    Big time mental blockage on the clean. Thinking too much about too much stuff. The olympic lift sessions should fix that.

    Good WOD, could’ve kept rests a bit shorter I think. Good job 5h30 peeps!

      One Oly lift class has already helped me A LOT! I get into trouble when I “over think” the moves too. 🙂 Still putting up some impressive weight. You must be doing something right…

    Had to find my inner peace for this one haha ! I sarted with a 1min plank and than two 30sec planks. I continued with 20sec planks for the remaining time except the last one that I was able to hold for 40sec… despite the fact that my entire body was shaking ! I only took 10sec break so I think I really pushed myself on this one 🙂

    Good job everybody
    *Maria and Heather = WOW !!!

    Kuddos to Maria, Gilles, & Heather. You gals & guy really rocked this WOD. Crazy!

  17. Kevin

    We have done a WOD with a 5 min plank before. And there were a few people that reached the 5 minutes unbroken. So I thought I’d step it up a bit and make it for 10 minutes. But I didn’t think that ANYONE would do that unbroken! I guess we’ll have it as 15 minutes next time!

    Did this one at home with a countdown timer and a stopwatch.

    WOD: 7:03 …definitely NOT unbroken. It wasn’t pretty but at least it was painful.

    then

    8.6 km run – 51 min… slow and steady.

    Kevin helped me improve this lift. Arms and legs are straight and then flex the hips in to the shoulder shrug. I like whatever Ipad app it that was that allowed you to analyze and correct the lift.
