SUMMARY: THE “FIRST PULL” (1ST PULL) IS THE INITIAL MOVEMENT PHASE OF THE CLEAN AND SNATCH AND VARIOUS RELATED TRAINING EXERCISES. MAXIMAL OR NEAR-MAXIMAL EFFORT TRAINING DEMANDS PRECISE 1ST PULL MECHANICS. THUS, IT IS THE 1ST PULL THAT SETS THE BIOMECHANICAL STAGE FOR PROPER EXECUTION OF THE ENTIRE LIFT AND FOR THE MOST EFFICIENT MOVEMENT PATTERN FOR HIGH LOAD MOVEMENTS TO BE SAFELY EXECUTED. THIS ARTICLE PROVIDES A THOROUGH BREAKDOWN OF THE FUNDAMENTAL ASPECTS FOR PROPER EXECUTION OF THE 1ST PULL AND EFFECTIVE COACHING STRATEGIES.
