Zara and Aaron looking good for future competitions with some block pulls and snatches

Ramsey competing at LSE 3, lifting some great PBs, qualifying for the British Senior Championships. Well done!

Paused Snatches and the 1st Pull Ultimately the aim of the first pull is to guide the bar into an optimal hang position, feeding into an explosive second pull. It’s a common mistake to try and use the first pull to increase the speed of the bar; a great idea in theory, but if rushing…

The 3-position clean, as demonstrated here, is simply 3 cleans performed from 3 different starting positions. For example, from the floor, from the knee and from mid thigh. This exercise has two key purposes: Firstly, it forces the athlete to generate more power from a less advantageous hang position. This is also made harder given…

Weightlifting competition at Belhus weightlifting club 17/05/15

This assistance exercise is used to correct excessive lifting of the feet during the transition under the bar and helps to address any unwanted movement forwards or backwards. Due to the fact that the feet remain in contact with the floor the entire time, turnover speed is improved by allowing the athlete to pull quicker…

Amazing seminar delivered by one of the worlds greatest lifters. So many things learnt and we look forward to using the new found knowledge in our training

Competition footage of the lifts today at Fit Performance Gym in Essex. Enjoy and we look forward to hosting the next one!

Week of training from 1st December to 5th December 2014. Olympic lifting has gradually be getting better over the past 3 months with PB’s being hit each time I test… Looking forward to competing in January with British Weightlifting.

Attempted my max day after a 6 week program I created. I managed PB’s on both lifts with an extra 7.5kg on the snatch and 2.5kg on the C&J. Happy days!

Coach Aaron and Ramsey give a brief introduction to weightlifting and how we might teach these lifts to a beginner.

An overview of my workout today. Music makes the workout seem powerful!
