Rugby is a power-oriented sport for which the Olympic lifts are considered supplementary activities in developing explosive strength. However, as complex specialist skills, many strength and conditioning coaches find these difficult to teach. This is compounded by the lack of research into skill acquisition aspects of the Olympic weightlifting, and the conflicting advice offered by cognitive and ecological camps within the motor learning literature. The purpose of the thesis was to investigate the influence of learning strategy on co-ordination when acquiring the weightlifting clean.
