Read the O-Lifting requirements & prerequisites.
Due to the strict movement path the barbell demands, proper mobility and technique are critical prior to training Olympic lifts.
Previous kettlebell training and barbell power lift experience is excellent, but not mandatory. The ideal attendee will be able to accomplish a barbell front squat and dowel or barbell overhead squat to gain the most from all this course has to offer. Those that cannot may still attend with the understanding that they will have some “homework” before adding Olympic lifts to their training. Because of the demanding nature of Olympic lifts, the attendee’s most important consideration should be his or her current mobility level. Although the full (squat clean or snatch) will not be taught, hips and shoulders should be mobile enough to accomplish power variations of the lifts (catching the barbell high).
