CrossFitters from around the Valley come to Coach Joe Micela to learn how to properly execute the Olympic Lifts. Coach Micela breaks down the Olympic Lifts (the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk) into a series of Progressions. This building block approach addresses one of the main concepts Coach Micela is trying to get across, Strength to Hold Position and Strength to Move from one Position to another. The idea of strengthening an athlete’s positions and then develop the coordination of movement is not revolutionary but it has Coach Micela approaches it that is. CrossFitters have made great strides in improving upon their existing technique and all have made new Personal Records in the Snatch, Clean & Jerk, Back Squat, & Front Squat.
