Vertically challenged garage gym flooring question

So finally got around to setting up my garage gym and need to figure out the flooring. Most I've read say to not drop bumpers on concrete, what I've found so far below (best to worst): 1. build a platform 2. plywood covered by stall mats 3. stall mats on concrete 4. cheap rubber flooring from...

Olympic squat form help

Hey guys. I recently started olympic weightlifting, and have been training with a coach (only once per week now, will be more frequent soon). I am running starting strength right now to get my squat up, but my squat has the ``buttwink``. I am 6`1 with long femurs, but pretty flexible nonetheless....

How to fix huge lean on snatch bottom?

I recently started learning the snatch and I've been video recording myself to check how I'm doing. I noticed I have a very big lean forward at the bottom of the snatch/catch and it is aggravated with weights. If I squat with just a wooden stick the lean is not that exaggerated. I foam roll and...

Max clean attempt worth watching

So about a month and a half ago, as high school was coming to an end, I wanted to try a 295lb clean because that's what I made my goal at the very beginning of the year. (I was at 245 then) My best before this attempt was 280. I thought any lifter would enjoy watching this video because of the...

Clean and front squat form check

Beginner checking in. I've been practicing the technique for clean/jerk/front squat for the past few days with a wooden stick only. I've probably watched every video on youtube about weightlifting and since I recently got my Adipowers I thought it's time to put everything into action. That's why...

Question Form problem methinks - any tips?

I'm fairly new to Oly lifting (only past 6 months) though I competed in power lifting 20+ years ago and have maintained performing those pwr lifts over all 20+ years since at much lighter weights. Unfortunately I don't have access to a lifting coach so I've been teaching myself from the internet....

new guy question with the power clean

I wanted to go back to OLY lifting and today was the first day and to see my numbers I maxed on the C&J, I got 195 the clean was easy but the jerk needs some help. I just went for a straight max on the clean and got 225. For a C&J to count in competition, do you have to squat? I got the clean...

Weightlifting Gym in Long Island

Hi, I set up a weightlifting gym in Holbrook, on Long Island. I'm 20, so not a coach or anything, but I have a pendlay bearing bar, and bumper plates. I would like to try to get a gym of dedicated olympic lifters. It's hard to find places out in Long Island though. I invite anyone interested to...

WL shoes >0.75" heel height?

I'm 5'9" but have longer legs in proportion to my torso. And I've always had minor ankle issues which hinders flexibility a little. I work on it daily though. I have a bit of trouble squatting in the standard 0.75" heel height (been using them for 2yrs). Nothing drastic but I can never keep the bar...

Looking for good weightlifting/Olympic gym near Westmont, IL

I've usually been a member of commercial gyms, and while they are good enough to get the job done, they never seem to have enough benches/squat racks/heavy dumbbells (100lbs+), ect... I would prefer to find a gym that has a larger focus on weights and specifically one that has an Olympic setup. ...

Can someone please critique my form on the clean. i feel like i'm not hitting full extension just right. I'm pretty sure i've developed some bad habits I need to resolve soon before they become too engrained. Are there any accessory exercises I can do to work on form? 175lb clean and jerk at...

High Bar Squats Sport Specific Only?

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?
