John C. Grimek's Weightlifting Accomplishments

I have always admired John C. Grimek, who was active in the 1930s - 1940s. Not only was he an incredible bodybuilder, he was also an accomplished weightlifter. Thought some of you may enjoy reading this PDF.

Anyone else get their neck messed up from cleans?

I don't know how I manage to do it, but my neck is scarred/red/irritated from cleans. Not even the lower part, more like the adam's apple area. One time I was stupid enough to put chalk on it so it actually had the opposite effect of what I wanted and made my neck bleed. Possibly resulting in...

Who has Mark Rippetoe coached?

I know he's coached various people, but can't find any specific names of lifters that he has coached. Can anyone provide me with those? (Again I'm not doubting he did, I would just like to know who, so please don't take this in a negative way)

Why am i so inconsistent?

Been lifting on and off (80% on) for about 1 year now under a club. Best lifts are listed in my sig. Some times i will walk into the gym and the snatch will feel awkward and heavy for no apparent reason (good sleep, heaps of food etc etc) and i'll start missing like 170s and this weekend i...

Shoulder dislocates..

I'm trying to gain some shoulder flexibility and have incorporated these. How close can you guys get your hands and is there a point where you should stop trying to get closer? Is it possible to become too flexible in this position? Edit: I know I'm nowhere near that point, just curious.

Jerk Form Help Please

Hi, this is a slow motion video of me doing a 70kg jerk for a double. I front squatted it before the jerks, but I don't think that really matters. I just started seriously training Olympic lifting about a month ago. Before that time, I strict pressed 68kg, so I think I suffer from having the...

converted to olympic weightlifting

Well I started the same way as everyone else, wanting to get huge, abs for all the girls and all that crap about isolation and having some stupid argument about where someone is Natty or not. For me the turning point was last week when I went to a fitness expo and saw some of the IFBB...

95kg snatch | my hs school record

nnTxzsuDWRE Form wasn't very good and it was more of a power snatch but it counts. Missed on 97.5. Going to try for more weight next week, I just need to work on my balance in the bottom and I will be able to get a lot more weight. Edit: here's the 97.5kg miss zGUNbX7XISA

Lightbulb tips on breaking bad clean habit!

So I finally went heavy on some cleans last night! For those who don't know (which is everybody here) I started training the olympic lifts hard last week. I had no prior Snatch experience (that sounds dirty huh) but I had power cleaned all through out high school for football. So of course my form...

Looking for the weightlifting documentary 'School of Champions"

Looking for the above documentary. It's a very good video, following the Bulgarian Olympic team in the 70's. It used to be on Weightlifting Exchange but it seems to have disappeared. Does anyone happen to know if it's anywhere else on the net, or perhaps has a copy downloaded? I did some...

The mental aspect of lifting heavy

I'm not talking about mental determination to get in the gym, or keep lifting. I'm talking about the mental aspect of going down with a heavy squat, or getting under a weight that feels heavy. I'm just starting seriously training Olympic lifting, so I'm really not used to having such heavy...
