Stuff I should do

Im gonna start going to a olympic weight training gym in around 5-6 months. I have olympic lifted for sports before, but i never did a full snatch properly. For the time being I am going to a fitness center gym and I cant do full olympic lifts there because of the metal plates and small space. What...

A question for you guys here

If a guy who can power jerk 300 pounds with average form, mostly just powering it up and not getting down under the bar barely, if he was to receive proper coaching on how to do a proper jerk for say 4-6 months, how much would he be able to do?

Transitioning from the clean to the jerk (hand positioning)

It's hard for me to understand finishing the front squat while just lightly holding your fingertips to the bar and then in a split second just bursting up and lifting heavy weight above your head. It seems natural to want to try to control the weight before you even start lifting it but I've read...

Feet width in receiving position.

I'm pretty new to oly, but there's always been a question that bugged me. Do you care about your feet width when transitioning from the pull to receiving position? I have long femurs and I notice the my feet are always slightly wider than shoulder width when catching a clean(my feet can stay...

Transitioning from powerlifting/general strength to olympic weightlifting

Hello oly lifters, I have a powerlifting/general strength background and would like to transition to oly lifting. I've been running 5/3/1 for about a year now and was wondering what the best way to switch to an oly program would be? PR stats. These are based of 5/3/1 so they are not true max...

Power clean form check

First time trying power cleans so I went with 95lbs. I think I need to sit down lower and make sure my back stays straight at the bottom. Squatting down to catch the bar is really only for when you get heavier weights right?

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...

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...
