Olympic Lifting Instruction

This is footage nearly a decade old, but still pretty valuable.  

Our head coach brought in Olympic Bobsled coach and Director of Chiropractic Rehabilitation and Sports Injury at Palmer Chiropractic, Dave Juehring, to indoctrinate our freshmen on proper Olympic lifting technique and mental preparation.

Coach Juehring was a wonderful contributor to our program at the time.   By providing quality instruction to our players, the kids were able to buy into the techniques our strength and conditioning program was introducing to them.   Sometimes it helps hearing the same message from others (not teachers/coaches) to reinforce what we ask our players to perform.

While this is a pretty basic setup, but there are a lot of key coaching points in this video to make Olympic lifting much easier to learn.
