8 Unusual Olympic Lifting Cues That Get Results



Olympic Weightlifting is a regular part of our Programming.  Throughout our training cycles we break down these dynamic lifts into their component parts to practice the various phases of the lifts and to build movement proficiency, strength and speed. 

  The Olympic lifts are often found to be the most complicated and can even be intimidating or frustrating to some.  But repeated practice with the right guidance and instruction can make the lifts, while still challenging, very rewarding as well.

Chris Holder trained as a Coach alongside Mike Burgener, and through his years of experience coaching the Olympic Lifts has developed a list of 8 cues that he’s found get results for his lifters. 


If you’re having trouble making sense of these movements, check out this article to learn how to gain more confidence in your ability during these lifts.


Cue #1: Ice Water in Your Veins
Cue #2: Commit to Shooting the Elbows
Cue #3: Knuckles Down
Cue #4: Drive the Ground Away on the First Pull
Cue #5: Shrug Yourself Down
Cue #6: Throw Your Bridge to the Corner
Cue #7: Catch Like a Mountain
Cue #8: Feel Your Obliques in the Squat
