Having trouble finding that mid-foot position when driving from the floor in your Olympic lifts? Lifters of all levels find themselves either shifting too far towards their toes or their heels while pulling from the floor, starting their lift off on the wrong foot. This drill helps you cue yourself to press through the mid-foot, keeping your weight centered so that you can apply the proper force while staying in position. Try it as a part of your warm-up before your next lifting session.
