Catching, Pulling, Pressing

Coaches become proficient in the teaching of catching, pulling and pressing barbells. Technical proficiency of the kinetic and kinematic mechanisms of strength-speed movement is important in moving heavy loads. The exercises and strategies used in weight rooms are varied and wide ranging; the push press, push jerk, split jerk, clean and jerk, one hand press-right and left, two-hand press, snatch, jump shrug, high pull, hang pull, jump squat, power clean, military press are a few movements to enhance motor coordination, strength and explosive power. This is all done with the inclusion of the larger muscles of legs, hips and lower torso.

The transfer of learned skill is most evident in similar tasks and the skill of barbell movement is specific to the lift, yet biomechanical similarities are a positive when it comes to moving great weights. The ultimate goal in training is to have stiff tendons with strong muscles that can hold them when they elongate to release energy.  

When you Get Strong you can move great weights.  If you train on Pendulum equipment Getting Strong is a given.
