Why is there no weightlifting at the 2015 European Games?

clean form check *video*

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?

Obviously high bar squats are used by the vast majority of oly lifters because of the carryover they have to to the snatch and C&J, but my question is... should high bar squats be used by general strength athletes as well as their primary squat technique? I don't plan on competing in...

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...

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?

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...
