Wil Fleming Weightlifting – Olympic Lifting Workout Program – Learning Weightlifting
As Olympic lifting continues its rebirth in popularity, there’s still a lot of confusion about injuries and teaching progressions. In this lecture, weightlifting coach Wil Fleming covers the most common injuries and how to avoid them, the most common errors of beginning weightlifters, his teaching progressions and how to prepare an athlete for Olympic lifting.
“It’s important that we follow a proper teaching progression and clearance system. This will ensure that athletes are Olympic lifting at a high technique level, but at a much lower volume to reduce injury risk.” ~Wil Fleming
