This section presents some background information and a practical assessment. This course aims to have you moving weights with knowledge and practice.
Weightlifting Athletic Circuit 1 is helping you understand about the specific alignment and postures in lifting.
In this circuit the combination of movements is the focus of attention and adding difficulties in mobility and stability.
In this circuit most exercises are learning you to accelerate and decelarate in lifting.
Weightlifting From Hang
In this chapter you learn to make your program with WAC's
Assess yourself 3
The big difference between lifting and carrying weights is the direction of the line of gravity. In the assessment with the squat it’s more about axially loading your spine which means carrying weights.
But if you bend forward the line of gravity results in a shear force in the spine, which means lifting the loads. In weightlifting the lifting part from the floor creates the shear moment in the spine that builds up around knee level and finishes at the end of the pull phase. After the turn of the bar, in the receiving positions of catch and rack, it is more an axial force on the spine.
