Why Olympic Lifting is so unpopular?

Why Olympic Lifting is so unpopular? Well, atleast in most of the countries. I mean, it's much more fun watching Oly lifting than Powerlifting. Haven't tried it myself, but I do enjoy doing C&J

Fix My Jerk Please

Hey bros, So here's the scoop: starting O-lifting about 2.5-3 months ago and have been learning on my own the entire time. Love the lifts but they're damn hard. Anyway, for the longest time my left shoulder would absolutely kill if I jerked anything over 95 lbs from the rack. I played...

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...
