Weightlifting technique: observations and coaching practice
I am not sure how many members of the UKSCA read Brian Hamill’s weightlifting newsletter. I would suggest that this is a worthwhile, as it contains many interesting snippets of information and opportunities to stimulate discussion amongst coaches. For example, in the latest edition(Bulletin 10), I particularly enjoyed the following extract: “If you think what sprinters must do the point is clear. With a foot contact time of 0.1-0.2s he must push up to 5 times his own bodyweight. He needs great force capacity (strength) and a high rate of force development, neither of which come from open kinetic chain machines or high rep medium to low weight routines” (P.5)
