Beginners who want to hear about Olympic lifting, and old-timers who want to hear about their O-lifting heroes will all appreciate this lecture.
“Balance is the ability not to fall over when you get out of position when performing physical activities. Balance is something you will develop by doing Olympic-style weightlifting. The key is only the heavy weight overhead, being steady and motionless. That takes practice. That takes teaching the muscles which muscles have to do the job to hold that weight overhead. Balance is another very important factor in weightlifting that is of benefit that you’ll develop.” ~Jim Schmitz
