Okay. So you've seen Aino's @ainolinnamaa latest strength PRs. That was due to the injury that prevented all olys for about two months. Meanwhile she recovered, we made her work on her physics. Then couple of weeks ago when she started to lift again, her snatches were totally off and very slow. It took me some time to catch the reason, but when I finally saw her lift live instead of remote, it became obvious. She had developped an entirely new starting position and pull alignments. Why? Because she was suddenly much bigger than before. She is extremely explosive and hypertrophic in nature and therefore her upper back and thighs had taken on quite a lot of new mass. It became difficult for her to get comfy in snatch starting position and she started to modify it. Her feet had gone too far out and her stance was wider than her hips. She kept her bum up to avoid her tummy to press against the thighs. When she pulled she turned her knees out (Rebeka-style). All those changes resulted ineffective pull and push (aka jump). Especially having the feet too wide prevents her from pushing off from the floor. Try jumping up and down with feet under your hips versus feet much wider and see for yourself which position gives you more power. So, today we met to work on those issues. Feet back below the hips, knees out BUT no wiggling them excessively out DURING the pull (instead, to push them back more) and bum down prior lift off. She got it and we were able to go up to her old PR @77kg with absolutely no problem. Her speed and explosion was back. So, now we can start our project towards her next competition and eventually towards Finnish Championships 2019. And yes, it will include yoga to make her new muscles longer and more supple. Stay tuned for weightlifter + asanas 😅 Happy!
