Fancy Footwork during your Lifts, with Coach Ryan

by, Coach Jen

Check out the latest video on the Wildcat YouTube Channel.

In this video Coach Ryan shows two key foot positions to practice in order to improve your Olympic Lifts.

One key to improving your Olympic Lifts (the Clean and Jerk and the Snatch) is to continue improving upon your rough form, through lots of practice. When you are first learning the lifts, however, the key is to learn to put your body parts in the right place, at the beginning, and all the way through the lift. In other words, the first thing you need to know is Where to put your body at the start of the lift.

A Jumping Foot Position at the start of the lift gives you more power at the start of the lift, as your heels are pressing down and your hips are shooting forward.
The ‘Air Squat’ foot position at the Catch (when you first catch the bar on your shoulders) gives you the stability you need to stand your body up, with weight on your shoulders.

Start at the bottom, if you will.
