This section is for training videos of lifters training either at National Squad Sessions or by themselves in their own club/gym. I will keep the rest of the 'Irish Lifters in Action' section for competition lifts to avoid things getting too messy!

If anybody has any videos from training that they wish to post and recieve technical feedback just email your video to me and i'll post it asap.

Tractor pulls for independant leg strength....I like it. Check out Kleszcz.
He is a Polish super, Despite size difference I think you are biomechanically similar and lift in a similar style.

Training in Aberdeen Jan '08
Lifter: Iain Robertson (85kg, Aberdeen)
http://revver.com/video/598188/weightlifting-training-in-aberdeen/

Iain has requested some technique feedback from this video. He has competed in the Leinster Open and Cork Open last year and is training with Nathaniel in Aberdeen. With some help from the forum members he can definately improve even more.

Iain has made very quick progress since he started lifting nearly a yea ago. His power lifts have always been very strong. There's a couple of things I think he has to work on to improve his full lifts:
Snatch:
he needs to get more speed under the bar and become more comfortable with the drop. His feet seem a lot more static in the full snatch than they do in the power snatch. Some of the speed tends to be lost in the second pull of his full snatch when compared to the ps, i think maybe due to over thinking the drop.

C&J
we haven't managed to get any full c&j on camera yet. clean has always been quite strong but again a bit more speed needed on the second pull and a quicker drop. The jerk is proving a little more difficult so hopefully we'll have some of them to show you shortly.

That's just my 2p worth, no coaching experience so i'm sure ye'll have more to say, and perhaps disagree with some of what i've said.

Iain,

I think the main thing that you have to work on is getting more comfortable in the full squat position and getting there fast. From seeing u in Cork I don't think it's a huge issue in relation to your cleans, but certainly your bottom position in the snatch needs more work. You can develop this by drilling drop snatches and snatch balance. Also by doing power snatch and riding the bar down to full squat position. You should also do some empty bar work just focusing on going into a full overhead squat postion and staying there for a while, trying to get gradually lower and lower. Stretch the lower body regularly, focus especially on hip flexors, and also shoulder flexibility.

Another thing that I noticed in the vid is that when the weight gets heavy you jump forward. With the 80kg ps the jump forward was minimal and acceptable, but with 85kg the jump forward was considerably longer. Focus instead on moving the feet out after you finish the pull and drop under the bar in both snatches and cleans.

Your starting position and body positioning throughout the pull seems fine to me. Your obviously very strong so if you can just work on getting more comfortable in the bottom position your lifts will increase dramatically.

I have a lifter who is also not as confident in the squat movements. I found the method of catching high and riding down caused the mindset (for this guy anyway) of always wanting or needing to pull high and he was always stuck when it came to heavier weights because he had never had many repetitions at any weight of pulling just to hip height and getting under the bar fast. If I asked him to do a high, medium, low routine he always caught the low high and rode it down slowly and you knew there was going to problems later on because in my opinion he was not developing speed under the bar in the 'riding down' technique..

My opinion for people who are inclined to do power movements all the time is to try and get them out of their 'confidence zone' and spend a few weeks emphasing the squat movement. Exercises such as what Cathal suggested but I may also add trying to do pulls from floor that only go to the height required for a low squat snatch so they develop the timing of getting a full extension along with the quick snap under.

If he is jumping forward ask why. Is he pulling on toes or does his ass raise too quickly causing shoulders to sometimes move forward.

Again I am not a coach and this is only from recent experience of coaching a number of athletes in the gym over here.

I remember seeing and reading about someone doing what I could only describe as "shrug drops" with a relatively light weiht to increase speed under the bar.

Basically it was like a really high hang with a quick shrug and then a straight pull under to the bottom position. There's a video of it on youtube somewhere. I must try and find it.

It's something I'm considering for myself because I've only ever been doing the power variants and am dead set on finally learning the right way to do things.

Anyway, I don't know if that's helpful or useless, just somthing relatively simple I remember coming across.
