There is no doubt about it. The Olympic Lifts take an incredible amount of technical proficiency to perform efficiently. I like to compare them to learning how to play an instrument. I wouldn’t take much to teach you how to make an instrument to make sound. Blow into it, pluck a string, push a key — Done. In an afternoon, I could probably teach you a basic cord. Same goes with these lifts. You already know how to get a bar from Point A to Point B. To “play a song” with that barbell is a different story. Then, playing that song in tune on tempo is another ballgame. Think about how long it takes to go from learning how to play “Happy Birthday” on the piano to playing “Flight of the Bumblebee“. It takes years and years of practice. It take patience and persistance. And, of course, it takes a good teacher. Keep practicing and soak up as much info as you can.
Be on the look out for our Olympic Lifting Program. Details will be released soon!!
