Learning Olympic Lifting – Olympic Lifting Program – Training The Olympic Lifts
This is a lengthy talk in which Joe Sansalone describes the value of Olympic lifting for everyone, and then tells exactly how he writes an Olympic lifting program, from beginner to elite.
“The need for power development—force production at a high rate of force development to occur within the body and the central nervous system—is something any person can benefit from as long as their body is able to tolerate the demands of moving weight fast, aggressively and explosively. They have the movement pattern skill fundamentals to be able to handle the sequencing, timing and coordination required to develop the Olympic weightlifting technique.”~Joe Sansalone
