    Essential Reading
    As new techniques and methods become old, the old become new. This article provides a perspective on how the snatch and clean and jerk were taught and used with athletes many years ago. Some techniques have changed over the years, but you will find the information included to be very useful. While some of the names are different, the exercises used are the same, or similar, to exercises of current athletes. This article provides a perspective on how lifting techniques were taught years ago and how you may be able to use them now.

    Note: It should be noted that the NSCA does not approve of some of the positions that are included in this classic article. Namely, the “good morning position 1” and “high pull snatch position 1” are not conducive to proper lifting technique of current standards. Their inclusion is important, however, because it serves to illustrate how far we have come as coaches.
