Re: Tips on Dumping Weight

If you want to be more confident on bailing an overhead lift, primarily the snatch grip, do this: Get your bar and overhead squat it, then, while in the bottom of the OHS, do some practice dropping it in front of you and in back of you using straight arms and basically guiding down under some control. You can also use some light bumpers. Do 5-10 reps or so just to get yourself comfortable so you don't panic when a lift is out of place. Usually, your body will instinctively move out of the way, but sometimes not, so the practice is warranted!!
