The Clean, Snatch and Jerk are extremely productive training tools for all athletes. The training advantages of Olympic lifts are innumerable, as their proper execution requires total body movement incorporating explosiveness, core stabilization, and a simultaneous triple extension of the ankles, knees, and hips. McClellan begins with 4 essential warm-up exercises and then focuses his instruction on the Clean, as its proper execution incorporates the primary movements of both the Snatch and Jerk. In the "Cleans" section, McClellan offers a 4-segment section of instruction: "Technical Breakdown," "The Complete Lift", "How to Identify Improper Techniques & Solutions", and "Teaching the Lift". McClellan then shares technique on the Snatch and the Jerk/Split Jerk (both of which incorporate elements of the Clean). How to Teach and Coach Olympic Lifts is the most comprehensive Olympic Lifts teaching tool ever available and a must see for any coach that trains athletes in the weight room!
