“FLOPPY” Overhead……

Are you “FLOPPY” overhead when you catch your snatches or jerks? I am seeing too many “FLOPPY” overhead lifters these days. New weightlifters are trying to hold and stabilize the lifts with their arms, but the arms have relatively nothing to do with it… unless it is done wrong!!! The stablization  should be derived from your trunk – mainly the LATISSIMUS DORSI (insertion on the humerus) and the SERRATUS ANTERIOR (rotates the scapula upward). Lesson here….use your back!
