Body Building THE POWER OF NUTRITION – Bodybuilding Lifestyle Motivation 49 COMMENTS Lauren is one of my national level lifters who I coach remotely but I was able to work with her in person. The goal of this session was to set in place a system for the set up and initial pull. This way, if she ever deviates from this, we’ll know and have a set dialogue to fix the problem. Let me know if you guys benefit from this style of content and I’ll be sure to post more. Reply First Reply Notification squad checkin in Reply "The good thing about Kilos is that I never know what i'm lifting. So I just lift it." Reply What are the best ways transition from powerlifting/bodybuilding to weightlifting? Reply When you say anchor your hips how low is that exactly? Also I do really like this style of videos. Gives me a better understanding of the cues you talk about when someone else is performing them live Reply Sneaky butt glance by our friend in the back there at 7:29. Reply Great as always Reply WHAT THE FUKthere's a job where you sit and stare at fit girls asses all day?!?!?!??? Reply Off topic, but can someone tell me the name or link me the pair of shorts the guy in the back is wearing. Reply loving these series, Reply Lauren is a freaking athlete! damn! Reply Make a how to squat video Reply Nice , plz keep wih this coaching thx Reply A series on this type of content would be awesome! Reply Zack, Thank you for reading my mind and making a video on something I needed some help with, it was very good. Reply Thank you for the great video Zack! My understanding is that beginner lifters (like myself) should learn and be proficient with a static start first before considering a dynamic start. How would coach the setup for a static start? Thank you! Reply Zack this is great content. It showcases your coaching while giving us viewers something tangible to work with. Your commentary videos are still informative, but your coaching / instructional videos are where you really shine. Reply Giraffe is noticably taller in this episode with Lauren. Did his neck grow? Thoughts? Explanations? You Decide. Reply Hey Zack, fellow long lacrosse boi here. I know this has been done a million times before, but could you make a video on squat form? I’ve always had trouble going below parallel and would love to see your opinion on it. Reply My man in the back staring hard Reply Awesome video! I really took some good tips from it!! Reply What is your opinion on a start position where you gather tension in a deep squat and then pull yourself over the bar? I dont feel like I can get in a tight position using the method shown in this video Reply Next up: “OLYMPIC” WEIGHTLIFTING | Teaching the metric system Reply I’ve never thought of putting that much emphasis on bracing the core in my lifts. Maybe that’s what’s been holding me back for so long. Can’t wait to try this! Thanks so much coach ZT! Reply "Olympic" in inverted commas… sign of bad news to come after 2020? 🙁 Reply Hey zack just a coaching tip from a fellow coach (other sport) is to try and say the same things as you do in the video but with lesser words and maybe a bit more intensity. You need to keep your lifters attention and especially if you look at the first minute with what I said above in mind you will understand. Don’t worry it will take time and that’s fine. Reply Thanks for the video! Next on the C&J maybe?I learned more in 10 mins than 3 months of self lifting! Reply Another thoughtful piece Coach. Very counter, as you note, to the widely espoused directive to get shoulders back before pulling. Very interesting and helpful. Your athlete Lauren shows why women are way more coachable than men – she metabolized your instruction almost immediately. Reply The last one was beautiful! When everything is done perfectly, it is almost weightless! Reply I just want to know why Olympic is in quotes. Is it no longer in the Olympics? Do you know something we don’t know? Reply I love this type of content! Some of the most beneficial videos I've ever watched were of Max Aita drinking a beer walking around coaching. Keep em coming! Reply This is super cool. As a taller lifter (well, 5'10" but 5' of that is femur), I've found that with heavier weights I can end up with a slightly rounded upper back in the power position, causing me to lose a lot force production there. The fix I've been experimenting with is pulling my shoulders back in the set up like she was doing initially. I've been finding some success with that, but it's really interesting to here this other take on it. Maybe it's just that I needed to brace my core more from the start as this would suggest. Marcin Dolega comes to mind as someone who can snatch the house but doesn't really pin his shoulders back all that much. Tian Tao on the other hand has formal dinner party level posture straight from his start position. Also, as someone who's dabbled in coaching, and hopes to do more of that in the future, videos like these are super interesting and valuable. Thanks again for what you're doing for our weird and awesome sport, Zack. Reply Should I set up for the snatch or C+J like a deadlift? Having so much trouble finding the right placement I usually have my shins touching the bar ? Reply using the same music as pro football focus Reply This is amazing! Please post more! Reply Addendum to my prior comment – I tried this “more natural thoracic” position. It didn’t go well. As weight got heavier, it became a back throw/front raise. And my QL’s lit up instead of engaging my glutes, which Cal Dietz talks about is such a dysfunctional cuing pattern. Why does Clarence Kennedy pull from such an upright position? And Wes Kitts clearly sets his shoulders back before every pull. But it clearly works for you Zack, so I guess its all about finding one’s individual body mechanics-based technique, on the margin at least. Reply Hey! do you have more videos about core importance/bracing cues? This was so helpful!! Reply I would see the same with clean starting position ! 😀 Reply I definitely prefer a dynamic start over static being on the shorter torso/ leggy-er side. Feels way more engaged and powerful. Also a bit more forgiving if it's not absolutely perfect. Reply Really enjoyed this video and this type of content, Zack. More videos like this would be a welcome addition to the great content you already put out. Reply Coach ZT i have a question. Sorry for my bad english. I perform the 13 weeks cycle. In weeks with the AMRAP, so i must amrap every last set or only in the last training of this week? Like this cycle very mutch and it gave me a lot. cheers Reply My guy at the back really needs coach. Reply Today I Pr my snatch by 5kg with this set up. Thank you Coach ZT, cheers from Italy Reply As a foreigner, really thanks for Eng subs! Reply Zack, it is very good content. Thank you. What I am interested now is what are the rules to qualify snatch as successful and failed. Sometimes I see lifts which seems to be good, but then referees give it all red. I know lifter has to lock his arms properly, but sometimes it is not enough. It would be great if you can make a video about it. I care more about videos like this one than funny videos with your Russian team 🙂 The other topic which bother me is how to stand up from the bottom. Should I drive with my hips up or rather use my quads to do it. I train in cross fit gym and they tell me to use my hips. Reply Im literary where this girl is with her snatch and im an 85kg male lol, really good video Reply She is good. Reply Great content.
