LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Fundamentals - Stance, grip, and position are critical components for every lift performed in weightlifting.

  2. Burgener Warm-Up and The Skill Transfer Exercises - 10 movements that break down the complexity of the snatch into practical, effective, and specific movements in order to dial in technical efficiency.

  3. High Hang Position - The first and most effective position for teaching a new athlete how to snatch or clean.

  5. Start Position - Learn how to properly “set up” and lift the barbell from the floor to the knees.

  6. Front Squat - 5 variations that help teach and develop a strong receiving position in the clean.

  8. Split Jerk - Learn the 5 points of performance for the split jerk through a detailed diagram that marks the feet.
