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.


This drill uses the vertical jump to build explosive power during the second pull of the snatch. It's also one of the first exercises taught in the Soviet system. Draw a line where your feet start before you do this drill to mark your foot placement and better analyze your mechanics.
