Forum: Olympic Lifting

Discuss Olympic lifting and your personal programs.

A few questions

I started training WL a while ago, but think I jumped into it too quickly (5/6 days a week, heavy sessions, lots of BS/FS and olympic lifts/accessory work). Its a shame as I had a great gym with lifting platform and good lifters to train with. Anyway, life has changed and I've ended up in London....

Clean grip question, shoes question, and routine request

Hey guys, I'm looking to do some Olympic lifting and was wondering how wide a normal clean grip is if I don't want to regrip for my jerk. Also, should I be using a hook grip for clean, snatch, and jerk, or what? Also, what are some of the typical routines for Oly lifting? Right now I'm just...

Koklyaev Cup of Russia 2011

snatch grip barbell front raise

What I mean, is a barbell front raise with a grip on the bar of the width identical to the one you'd snatch with. I know the power of the movement comes from the hips, but would this help out at all, and have any of you put this in your routines? My only concern is that doing an exercise...

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

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...

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??
