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...

Question about snatches

Does a power snatch count as a snatch in a competition? Can your hands be so wide they touch the sleeve (spinning part of the bar)? Edit: found the answer to the first question, you can do a power snatch in competition. Can't find anything on my other question.
