Lindsjö drills technique with an empty bar and encourages athletes to get a little angry when they jump the bar overhead, much like how Coach Mike Burgener demands a junkyard-dog attitude when pulling a weight.
From there, Lindsjö tells his athletes to add weight without altering their movement and technique at all. If the weighted snatches from the hang position look the same as they did with no weight, the athletes can add more plates. If the snatches look different when weight is added, then something needs to be fixed.
Of course, the ultimate goal is to move as much weight as possible, mostly because it’s a hell of a lot of fun.
