New to olympic weightlifting

Hi there, I've been weight training for almost 2 years, mainly in the form of powerlifting. Recently, I became very interested in the Olympic weightlifting (seeing those lifters life 2-3x their own body weight above their heads really inspired me) so I want to ask some specific training...

Olympic Lifting Boise, ID

Right now I'm finishing up high school powerlifting. Pretty avid powerlifter, but I'm interested in getting into some olympic lifting. Are there any gyms or teams in Boise I could get involved with? Thanks

Body Fat and Core Strength

This big, burly black guy at my gym said that a lower body fat % leads to a stronger core. I'm struggling with my high-bar squats right now because I can't keep my back straight as I go down. Is there any truth to his wisdom?

Third week of Oly lifting and....

.... I've fallen in love lol!! Seems that even though I'm not making quick progress on the strength part (since I'm really worried about my form) of the lifts, all of my other power lifts feel better and making new PR's quicker. Only problem I have is with snatches. I still have to muscle it up a...

Why doesn't the IWF adopt the 2011 IPF weight classes?

I think Olympic weightlifting could fare a little better, especially for the guys who weigh 100+ kilos. Instead of changing every few years and reducing the weight classes, the IWF should share the same weight classes as the IPF. Post 2011 IPF Weight Classes Men; 59 kg, 66 kg, 74 kg, 83 kg,...

Problem with the second pull

Hi all! I've been Oly-lifting during 4 week with my coach. He has teached me the snatch and C&J. I have "strong" (relative) legs and I think a weak back. During my snatches and cleans i enter down the bar with great speed, i can take without problems on a low height stance. The problem its...

Evenin all, I have been gradually working my way up slowly in the Olympic lifts and their variations. Recently invested in some Oly shoes as well. My single goal at the moment is to increase my C & J and Snatch. I am hardly doing any isolation hypertrophy work. I've just realised I can't...

Snatch form check

Started incorporating snatches in my workout just last week after about a month of doing it with a broomstick every day in my flat, could do with some feedback. First half is more of power snatching, second half I try to drop as low as possible. Thanks guys. SB9PV2C1bHg

Help me fix my jerk (video included)

So my jerk is the reason that I suck at weight lifting. I recorded these today, but keep in mind that this was at the end of a very heavy week with a lot of pressing and jerking. My mechanics really break down on all of my jerks, so hopefully this will help you guys notice all my weak points. I...

Injured rotator cuff

I tweaked my rotator cuff recently (90% sure its the rotator cuff at least). After doing weeks of heavy snatches and jerks it evolved from a very miniscule pain to a bit more of an annoyance. I don't think I necessarily tore it or anything, maybe more on the line of a tweak. I've layed off of...

Rouge Bar write up!! "NOT TO GOOD" time will tell!

I have had my bar now for about a month, Today I notice it wasn't spinning as well as when I first got it, so I brought it home and took off the collars to clean and lube. Taken the collars off was very easy 2 C-clamps and it's off. When I took off the first clamp and removed the the cap I saw A...
