Knee surgeries

So who has had them, what kind, and how many? I just had another one two days ago... very painful right now. That makes two lateral meniscus tears for me, one on each leg. Kind of depressing. Wondering who has dealt with them and how has your recovery been?

Catching low in clean

Im having troubles catching the bar low in a full clean. I can use bad form and power clean more than I can full clean and im trying to break the habit so I can get my lifts up. My weightlifting coach at school sucks and I can't go to a really good coach yet cus he's coaching at a different school...

Squats: Light or Heavy?

Watching this video made me think about the role of squatting in oly lifting and I wanted to know your opinion. What is more useful/has worked better for you in training. More intensity, less volume or less intensity, more volume (in terms of sets such as 10x3 back squats with say.... 100%-110% of...

Need help with snatch form

-6_ZA7mJB10 My form is terrible recently. I had a leg injury that kept me from doing any lifts involving legs for ~2 months, starting getting back into lifting again a couple weeks ago. My snatch form has deteriorated a lot and I have lost just under 20kgs to my max snatch. But my other lifts...

Women's American Record Makers

Hey guys. I went to the LA Fit Expo (which I think was hosted by bb .com) and Coach Takano threw an exhibition meet there. My coach was lifting in the women's meet so I filmed a bunch of the lifts. Here are all 6 lifters (including Sarah Robles, and also a pretty cute Mexican lifter who was...

Unhappy Trouble after reset, failing sets

I've been following SS off and on for the last year, trying to be consistent but my motivation just wasnt there all the time. I have been back on it now for about 4 months and my bulk is coming to an end here soon. I had to reset all of my lifts exept for row, and even after resets I'm having a...

Weightlifting shoes vs Chuck Taylors for Hamstring and Glute Strength

Hi, Would using weightlifting shoes during squats decrease Glute activation and hamstring strength due to the raised heel vs the chuck taylors, or would the extra depth counter this and strengthen the hamstrings and glutes as well as squating in chuck taylors or more? Using an example of...

Front Squat and hip drive

Does front squat requires hip drive when going up from the bottom just like the back squat? Sometimes I am scared to go on a full hip drive because the bar might fall forward. Also, when going down the front squat do you just go down straight but keeping knees out? Thank you guys!

Neck Protection

The bar I have to use at school (one of the only ones that aren't bent) has extremely sharp knurling and is cutting up my neck REALLY bad. What are some good, non intrusive ways to protect my neck from utter destruction?

The Triple Extension vs The flat-footed/catapult for Power clean/ power snatches

is the argument between The Triple Extension vs. The flat-footed/catapult different for Power cleans.. Are some of the points for catapault technique less valid when talking about powercleans... As in does jump and shrug etc. play a bigger role in power cleans as opposed to cleans??

Rob Addell of Average Broz 170 kg snatch at 96 kg in training

xwriD4uxp24 Easy peasy. Both motivating and discouraging at the same time. EDIT: I say discouraging in the sense of seeing how far I am behind... and I ain't getting any younger.

One strap vs two straps?

What do you guys prefer? Does the toe strap help a lot? Would be nice if you've worn both. Deciding between the adipowers or romaleo 1s or even just sticking with my kanamas which are pretty much like the adipowers. Also any experiences with the bigger middleish strap of the last...

What are your opinions on the use of belts and sleeves (not wraps)?

So I watch a lot of cal strength, broz, OTC, and every other current lifting videos I can get a hold of. I've been particularly impressed with the broz training videos particular because I never see them use belts, knee wraps, or even knee sleeves. He seems pretty adamant about avoiding all of that...

Do you train your calves?

Do you do isolation exercises for calves? I figured the oly lifts stimulate them enough but it does not seem to be the case.

Accidental Powerclean Form Critique

mN4HzdgPlaM These are the kind of crap lifts that happen when my coach is not around. Other than the obvious pulling with arms, going on toes, humping the bar problems. What else is wrong with this lift? I meant for this to be a clean, but my speed under the bar is garbage, any tips, drills,...
