Re: Progression with Oly Lifts

Chris, I've been thinking something along the same lines.

Power Cleans are very common for athletes though.

If and when (maybe) I go back to gymnastics coaching, I'm thinking about playing with snatch or clean pulls for my gymnasts. Yes, they already did squats, push-press, lunges, one leg squats of various kinds, and deadlifts to some degree. My friend is quite fond of benching for his gymnasts.

So much damn easier to teach them a high pull. Never have to worry about screwing up their wrists in a missed clean.

Jerking would be a good idea too methinks. Not terribly difficult. But push-press might suffice.

They are very common, you are right, but their use is really a waste of time and energy for athletes in my opinion (barring O-lifter and CrossFitters).

Their use is a strength coaching remnant from times past.
