Test your knowledge of Olympic Lifting by telling us which hang clean lift was performed correctly and why. The first correct answer in the comments section below will win a Hammer Athletic merchandise pack which includes a shirt, cap and towel.

No idea? Anyone interested in learning these difficult exercises, or fine tuning them should get along to one of our Olympic Lifting Clinics.

UPDATE: The correct answer is Lift B. This lift included a triple extension* at 0:03 seconds into the video. In lift A you’ll notice this was just missed out.

*Triple Extension refers to the explosive generation of power produced by the simultaneous extension of the hips, knees, & ankles. The secret to maximizing an athletes force producing capability within the Olympic Lifts is in the correct timing of triple extension.

      Jimbo Better luck next time mate. The correct answer was B – in both videos I’m well under the bar. The problem was that in lift A I didn’t triple extend.
