Jason working his press.
When we start new athletes it all begins with the simple movements. The squat, the deadlift and the press. We like to hammer the basics before moving on to the more complicated movements like the snatch or clean & jerk. We find that any errors in the simple movements only become more pronounced with increased difficulty. It is fun to jump into class and try to keep up but the important thing to remember is the magic is in the movements and correct execution is everything.
