Hayden.M. Posted February 6, 2010 Share Posted February 6, 2010 hi alli was wondering if doing olympic stlye weight lifting such as the deadlift, the snatch and the clean and jerk, would supplement gymnastics training very well? I remember reading an article a while back stating that in the year (something) they did an experiment on which athlete could do the highest verticle leap and the fastest 60 yard dash, and guess who won both? thats right, the olympic weight lifters. they could jump higher, from standing, than basketball players and high jumpers, and they could run that 60 yard dash even faster than sprinters! so maybe if you combined this type of activity with gymnastics conditioning, what would be the results?any replies greatly appreciated,Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
