Teaching the Olympic Lifts
Teaching the Olympic Lifts
The recent popularity of the Olympic lifts within the fitness industry has added a new dimension to many training programs. The increased use of highly technical exercises requires adequate preparation on behalf of the client from a musculoskeletal stand point, as well as a greater degree of instructor competence to properly teach the lifts. Clearly a weekend workshop is insufficient instruction for an individual to safely teach these types of skill-based lifts. Therefore, personal trainers who want to employ these exercises will find it beneficial to pursue additional training so that they can properly instruct them. Unlike a traditional strength exercise like a military press, the Olympic lifts are velocity based and increase neuromuscular and musculoskeletal requirements. Trainers must be familiar with proper teaching cues as the movements are complex, fast and place significant stress on the body.
