Episode 40: Overhead Lifting For Athletes with Marcos Soriano

July 19, 2019

Are weightlifting overhead derivatives useful for athletes who are not competitive weightlifters? What do we really mean when we say force output, rate of force, and impulse of force? Can the push press and jerk carry over to our ability to jump? Is there an argument for the use over overhead derivatives versus the bench press for upper body strength in athletes? We discuss these things and more with sports scientist Marcos Soriano.
