For our newer athletes, you should focus on timing, footwork and landing position instead of the load lifted. For our more experienced athletes, only increase the load if your technique is consistent.
*Find your first set by warming up to a load that is challenging but that you’re confident you won’t miss. Make small increases in load if technique is consistent. Determine a goal for the day and work backwards in 5- to 10-lb. increments to find a starting weight.

*During your warm-up, determine which is most difficult for you: the timing of the lift, moving the feet consistently from a jumping to a landing position, or the bottom of the overhead squat. Experiment with sets of 2-3 reps. Only increase the weight if mechanics are sound.
