How to Develop Speed and Smooth Lifting

Stepping up to the bar at Dino Headquarters.

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

Several of you have said you enjoy
watching my videos on Instagram.

And you've also asked how to to
develop speed, good form, and
smooth technique on the Olympic

So I thought I'd share a new
video that answers that question.

It shows me working on speed,
form and smooth technique.

It's called drilling - and I do lots
and lots of it in my workouts.

I begin each workout with the
empty bar - and I use it to drill
whatever lift I'm training that

If it's snatches, I drill snatches.

If it's clean and jerk, I drill clean
and jerks.

I do five singles, working for
perfect form and smooth
technique on each one.

Then I add 5 kilo plates and
repeat the process - 5 singles,
striving for perfect form on

Then I use 10 kilo plates and do
another 5 singles.

And so on.

I video each lift, and watch it
to see how I did and what I
can improve in the next lift.

I do this for 30 or 40 minutes
in every workout - before I get
anywhere near a heavy weight.

It's a must for older lifters -
because it helps keep you
fast, mobile and agile.

And fast, mobile and agile is
a very good thing ta any age.

And an even better thing at
age 60.

Anyhow, here's what it looks

By the way, let me repeat
something important. I do
singles - even when it's just
the empty bar.

Drilling isn't about doing lots
of reps - or as many reps as
you can, as fast as you can.

It's about single reps - making
each one as perfect as possible.
