Default Including Oly lifts

Been some talk on here recently about including Oly lifts in your routine. Just read this article by Chad Wesley Smith. You can find the rest of the article here: JTS: Improving the Olympic Lifts for Non-Olympic Lifters

"If you’re an athlete and you want to improve your Olympic lifting; Get strong in the squat and deadlift, improve your sprinting, jumping and medicine ball throws and practice your Olympic lifting technique with submaximal loads"

Here's a quote from a question I asked in my workout journal.

Quote:
This may be a complete novice question and forgive me if I sound silly, but I'm new to the Olympic lifts. What exactly is the "first pull" and the "second pull" and what differentiates the two? What would be reasons for failure at the first pull vs. the second pull?
Does anyone know what the answer to this may be?

Thanks for that OR. Fine option for those who want the lifts but not the time/energy...

MVP: quickly, the first pull is the portion of the lift where the bar is pulled from the floor to mid thigh-ish. Second pull is the portion where the bar is pulled pretty close to the hip crease at which time the hips explode/extend.

First pull more or less gets the weight up into position while the second pull really bucks that weight up high enough for you to have time to get under it.

Go to 50second...
