Abstract

Sport biomechanics uses a variety of measurement methods to analyse and quantify human motion. The resulting data should be used to provide a better understanding of the movement or skill so that the motion efficiency might be changed through appropriate coaching techniques. This study utilizes biomechanical measurement techniques to provide quantitative data on olympic weight lifting. Qualitative and technical theories of lifting are then used in an attempt to understand and correct lifting faults.
