Olympic Weightlifting is an art. The art of efficient movement. These 300 fps super slow motion clips of Kendrick Farris’ 157kg Snatch and Chad Vaughn’s 175kg Clean &amp; Jerk at the 2010 Arnold Classics are fine examples of that art.
Ursula Garza and Chad Vaughn demonstrating the Drop Snatch. A great drill to tech yourself to tighten up when catching the snatch. Drill: catch the bar at various heights (quarter / half squat) and tighten up immediately
Chad Vaughn is coaching the Snatch Pull Under. A great drill to work on that speed under the bar as it isolates the extreme extension portion of the snatch. Shrug up on the toes and the lean back to make room for a straight bar path.
Chad Vaughn talks about the optimal bar path and common mistakes.
Chad Vaughn shows us how to set up for a correct snatch position. His tip: Raise the head, lead with chest. That will keep the back tighter.
