This video starts with snippets from an interview with Coach Burgener. He talks about the real world transference of training the Olympic lifts, and about the difference between pure strength and speed strength.
The Burgener approach to cleaning and snatching is to develop proficiency from the high hang position (standing tall with the arms long). This is the essence of the “jump and land.” Every clean and every snatch pass through this high hang position.
Foot position is absolutely essential for successful Oly-lifting. Coach B works extensively with both athletes on getting their footwork correct. Jocelyn tends to lift her feet too high, creating instability, and Jason’s feet are all over the place. “Ninety percent of all missed lifts can be attributed to the feet in one way or another.”
This videos covers the early part of the session with light weights. Coming soon are more videos of their full session (in which both athletes set PRs in the snatch).
