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 video is similar to last week's drill, but the blocks aren't as high. This exercise improves pulling mechanics and also strengthens the muscles used during the clean pull. Combine this drill with the Clean Pull from Blocks Above the Knee and the Clean Deadlift from Blocks Above the Knee.
