There are three ways in which a person learns a movement. Auditory, visual and kinesthetic. Auditory simply means that someone can tell you how to perform a movement and you can do it. A visual learner has to see the movement being done before they can comprehend what the movement should look like. Kinesthetic learners have to feel the movement or the correct position, for example I put my hand on your low back during a deadlift so you feel the muscles you should be contracting. You will use all three of these senses when learning but, people often favor one over the others. If you are like me and are a visual learner you can see a movement and repeat. Monkey see monkey do. In this case it’s often a good idea to watch movements being done by people who are really good at doing them. When I first started doing Oly lifts I watched tons of videos and by doing this, those highly technical movements were more comprehensible.
Take some time and watch this following video. Watch it a several times and hopefully by seeing the Oly lifts done you will get better at performing them.
