Forum: Olympic Lifting

Discuss Olympic lifting and your personal programs.

How badly did I butcher these.

First attempt at these.. Normally train for powerlifting. Today was one of my conditioning/GPP days and decided to give high pulls a shot. Keeping it light for a while until I can actually do them correctly. This is only 105lbs. By the way, didn't have my oly shoes on me, thats why Im in...

I have forgotten how to power snatch.....

I've run into a weird problem with my snatches: it seems that I've forgotten how to power snatch! Rewind: I used to train my snatches differently by power snatching every time until I couldn't pull the bar high enough and then would just do snatches from there on as the weight progressed in the...

Back squat grip width in relation to upper back tightness

Hello everyone, I am a complete beginner so bear with me. I have spent roughly 2 months trying to ease myself into some olympic back squats, I had fairly good mobility but I found I needed way more hip and ankle mobility to be able to squat upright. I'm getting more and more upright with time...

Just got the 2008 Adistars

& Now I know why they're used by so many pro's! Had Inov-8 Fast Lifts and tried the romaleos before these. Hands down the best Oly shoe i've used.

New C&J PR (230lbs) at 175lbs (VID) It's ugly.

So I wish I got a video of my Snatch PR of 175 the other day but I was alone. My GF got this video of my yesterday. This was my last attempt in my workout. I didn't stretch my calves/ankles this workout and you can tell as I'm on my toes when I caught the clean. The jerk was ugly too, LOL. I'm fine...

Unhappy Heel inserts for minimalist shoes = poor man's weightlifting shoe?

I am not VERY serious (*ducks*) about weightlifting, my goals are to squat 225lbs for 5x5 and snatch 135lbs for 5x5 as well (long term goals). I am more into martial arts training and on a very tight budget! I was wondering if there was any harm in buying 0.75" EVA heel lift inserts for my...

Angry Can't get under the bar fast enough on squat cleans

And I end up looking like this: Elbows aren't rotated far enough under the bar, wrist says "oww!", and I drop the bar for safety. Suggestions?

Amount of time between reps for Power Cleans?

Alright so this is what I'm after: I'm aiming to do a 3 rep max set. When I first tried doing this about a month ago I figured I was supposed to do a rep and then lower the weight down and barely touch the plates to the floor, never releasing tension off my body completely and then explode into...

Romaleos 2 v Adipower Width

I know this topic has been covered, but I just had a more specific question. As a powerlifter, squatting in oly shoes has been a godsend for me. I currently use Wei Rui warriors but am looking to upgrade. Many people have recommended the adipowers over the romaleos for some structural things...

Selling my size 12 Ironwork III's

Everyone, I put my Adidas Ironwork III's work sale. These are a beautiful shoe, size 12, and hard to find. I did not take the time to clean them up, but I did they would look brand new. Also, all benefits will go to my USAW renewal and hopefully some of my next competition fees as we all know...

Can you give an example of a oly/bb split?

I've been doing only OLY lifts for about 6 months now. I feel good, knowing I'm progressing on my lifts there, I just hit a 225lbs C&J PR last weekend. But now, I want to add in some BB stuff so I can still maintain a good body while gaining strength. I'm not sure how to combine these two things...

What tights/half-tights do you use?

I've been training in gym shorts for the past few months and noticed that some are starting to rip at the thighs from all the cleans I'm doing. I've been doing a lot of triples, and noticed that i hear a tearing noise sometimes when I catch the bar at the thighs on the way down. Also, when I squat...

Clean and Jerk form check request

Hello my name is Sam I have been Olympic lifting for about 4 months now. This is a video of me doing C and J with 180 pounds. It is at the end of a workout so I am tired already. My PR is 200, so this weight is challenging but I can consistently lift it. Are my hips getting low enough upon...

Investing in a pair of Oly Shoes (UK)

I'm looking at getting some Oly Shoes to help with my front squats, high bar back squats and powercleans. I've had a look around and searched, but I'm struggling to narrow down the choices: *****://www.strengthshop.co.uk/lifting-shoes/strength-shop-lions-weightlifting-shoes.html £48 ...

Some proprietary research into %'s of elite lifters

So there I was training and watching weightlifting competition videos when I started wondering about the ratios of the C&J and Snatch to bodyweight and the ratio of Snatch to C&J amongst elite lifters. I had read about some observations about this but thought to make it more official, I'd do...

Front Squat Form Check

G6oqQh1srPg You can see that (at least on the ascent), I'm having my chest cave downwards. I believe this is related to ab strength (could be wrong). What accessory work improves ab strength in relation to the FS?

Programming query

So I've been doing roughly the same program (with minor tweaks) for a while now and I think it might be time to try something new. I've gotten results but progress has somewhat stalled. One thing I've thought of doing is that once or twice a week I'd do my strength work (front or back squats)...
