EDITOR'S NOTE: Every Wednesday we will be featuring a new Olympic weightlifting video from Sean Waxman of Waxman's Gym. Brush up on your technique and learn some coaching tips from a world-class coach.


These videos will demonstrate some of the most common weightlifting errors and teach you exercises you can do to correct them. Today we will learn a simple exercise you can do with a partner to learn how to activate the lats. This will prevent the bar from traveling away from you during the pull.
