Olympic Weightlifting: Cues & Corrections w/ Daniel Camargo
Daniel Camargo is back! He was on for the first episode EVER. This time we talk about beginner, intermediate, and advanced errors for the Snatch, Clean, and Jerk. Danny is able to articulate what your body should be doing and how you should be feeling in a very unique way.
Whenever you’re lifting a barbell, there are moments of doubt and panic that may stand in your way. This happens to EVERYONE. It’s when the bar starts to feel heavy and the elite have mastered the ability to dance with this doubt.
What I enjoyed about this episode is that many of these technical cues and corrections can be implemented right away. Good news for you because that means light bulbs are bound to go off after this episode.
