Olympic Lifting with the New Look British Athletics!

Fresh off the back of  a wildly successful 2012, the newly re-branded British Athletics (formerly know as UK Athletics), have continued to work with Somersault to produce a range of video coaching resources. For our latest shoot we were in to Bristol to focus on Olympic lifting exercises that help to develop power and explosiveness in all athletes. We were joined on the two day shoot by Olympic lifting expert Stuart Yule.  Stuart is the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at the Glasgow Warriors rugby union team, having previously worked at the English Institute of Sport and represented Scotland at the Commonwealth Games. In other words, he knows how to lift some weights! We set up on the day with two cameras, using all of our expertise in shooting for sport to capture the best angles for coaching points to be made.  Each exercise is incredibly complex, so in post we’ll also add in graphics and text to illustrate coaching points. These videos will feature alongside content we have previously produced on British Athletics online platform known as uCoach, where it will be accessible to athletics coaches all over the country. We have more projects with British Athletics in the pipeline and look out for some work appearing on site soon.
