View Full Version : Snatch/C&J training documents
02-18-2010, 03:19 PM
Doing some searching on some older documents for training these lifts and come across these. I'm not vouching for their validity or usefulness, but they have been interesting to read through and seem to jive with some of what I have seen presented on these lifts and basic SS technique.
BTW, I put this here as opposed to the Training section since, technically, this is the Starting Strength site and the O-lifts sort of fall outside of this.
Anyhow, any input, comments, thoughts are appreciated. Tinyurl used as the links are quite long and these go directly into opening them as a PDF:

Thanks for this, I have been looking for some guidance on the jerk & split part but have had difficulty finding anything.
In terms of the snatch & clean, there are two separate extremely detailed seminars by tommy kono on youtube which you may want to check out.

I've been looking over those documents and really like them. here are some things left to be desired tough: more specifics on grip and starting position
also i just don't understand the Jump Shrug and the High Pulls. I learned the PC from the SS model and am used to the "jump" so in the Shrug that it calls for I feel like I'm not using that much strength and I'm kindof just stopping (feeling like I should be jumping like the early stages of learning the PC in SS)
Is that how it's supposed to feel? I don't think I'm going to do High Pulls at all...

I'm having problems printing these, so start with just one page at first. Seems to be just a bunch of random letters/characters. I wonder if it is because these were excerpted from a journal?
From what I understand, it's a general strength training site, so O-lifts would fall under the purview.

Greg Everett's book on Olympic lifting is very detailed; He presents some of the lifts differently from Rip - for instance, he divides the clean and the snatch into 3 pulls instead of 2, and he advocates for high bar squats. But the amount of analysis he puts into the lifts is very similar to SS.
