In this first video of this series from CrossFit by Overload, Coach B talks a little about the lifts and why we train them. Then, the two athletes are introduced. They are 2008 CrossFit Games champ Jason Khalipa from CrossFit Santa Clara and NorCal Regional Qualifiers winner Jocelyn Forest from CrossFit West Santa Cruz (though this video was filmed before the event).
Burg points out that both athletes are very strong, which can sometimes be a curse when it comes to the Olympic lifts. Strength is important, but not nearly as important as speed-strength. He takes them through the Burgener Warmup and explains what he sees happening.
Coming soon are more videos of their full session (in which both athletes set PRs in the snatch).
