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.
