Hi. I am helping a friend through the Olympic lifts.
This guy is a great CrossFit athlete but is constantly injured due to that he lacks a lot of flexibility in the pecs, lats, shoulders and worst of them all biceps.
We have almost solved the chest issues due to a lot of mobs like the superb Chinese Stretch. The biceps however is as rigid as ever.
This is a mixed question of flexibility and OLy so that's why I am posting it here since I believe the two are connected and that OLy exercises can help him getting comfortable locking that elbow. We are doing Back Jerk Snatch Grip, Snatch Balance etc.
Any suggestions on how to give him an inch extra of lockout would be so helpful. He is strong as hell but it is pretty hard to hold 100kg with bent arms.
Example of problematic Snatch lockout. It was a PR but still very risky as you can see in the bottom where he catches it with bent arms.
Thanks in advance.
