“It is how you move from position to position that actually determines the outcome of the lift. Looking at position alone or phase movement alone is not going to help improve your lift overall. Being able to link all that together (the 5 key positions and 5 phases) is what’s going to help put that heavy weight over your head.“—Lester Ho, The Training Geek
“In that bottom position, the ideal position requires you to have the weight either overhead or on your shoulders, with your shoulders and hips under that weight and your feet under your hips to create maximum stability when receiving the weight. So, here are some common areas which many of us (including myself at times) have issues with and stops us from adopting a less-than-ideal position at the bottom of a snatch or clean when receiving a weight.”—Lester Ho, The Training Geek
