Monday’s workout includes moving a bar from the ground to overhead, arms fully extended and locked out. This is the longest range of motion we can move an object through, and there’s more than one way to do it. Each time you step up to the bar you can choose the world’s fastest lift, the snatch, or the world’s most powerful lift, the clean and jerk. However you decide to go about moving the load, remember that your legs are the engine. Do not be deceived by the fact that you’re holding onto the bar and attempt to make your arms the focus. You can squat much more then you can press. Use your legs as the primary driver to get the weight up. You’ll have ample opportunity to develop upper body strength, separating the bench from the bar in the early portion of class.
