Olympic Weightlifting requires speed, strength, precision, flexibility, timing to lift a weight then stabilize it overhead. It looks very beautiful and amazing no matter the weight and no matter whether the person lifting the weight is male or female. Despite the obvious of getting stronger there is one other thing you can do to improve your weightlifting.
What is this thing?
If you dedicate to improving your lifting technique especially on a daily basis you will develop the capabilities to execute your lifts with precision and place the bar where it really needs to be. You do this by practicing perfectly. How does that look like? What is perfect practice?
Perfect practice is when you take a sub max loaded bar and lift it doing the snatch, clean and jerk, jerk, or any other lift when you don’t tire yourself out but practice lifting the bar. It can even be on an empty bar!!!! What is important here is to practice, practice perfectly, perfect practice!!! And it requires deliberate, intentional execution of lifting. It can be boring if that’s the way you want to look at it or you can view it differently such as being intentional, precise, and selecting a path of improvement for my lifting. I encourage you to improve your lifting skills.
I recommend to start with an empty bar and keep the weight around 50% or less and execute singles. Do it until it’s as perfect as you can make it! Weightlifting is a skill and not just a grind.
