Calling Crackyflipside

Can you do that bar path thing for my videos? I've been practicing the snatch and posted a video a while back, got some good tips from everyone, and now am looking to see if my form has improved any. All comments welcome. Sorry the video is dark again, I train in my garage at night usually. The...

Olympic lifts in D-1 College Football?

How horrendous is the form at the collegiate level? I'm going to Clemson University next year. Supposedly, this school has an excellent strength training coach (for football) named Joey Batson. However, the numbers just don't add up. In 2006, the "Strength All-Americans" were Dustin Fry on...

Please Critique My Lifts (Updated Weekly)

I've decided that I want to dedicate a part of my training to learning the Olympic lifts in addition to the slow movements. I will post videos of parts of my training sessions in hopes that some of the forum regulars (e.g. madaozeki, raffiki, JLC, etc.) can pop in and give me some suggestions. I'll...

Learning the Olympic Lifts

Saw this set of PDFs describing how to learn/coach the snatch and C&J. It looks like a pretty good resource that I hadn't seen mentioned here before. Seems to cover the basics for those interested in learning the lifts. Coaching Optimal Technique in the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk by Bob...

Help Learning the Power Clean

Hey guys. I'm not a regular in this section, but I thought you all would be among the most knowledgeable about the power clean. I just started learning it on my own a few weeks ago, beginning with the jump. I've been reading up on it and watching videos online, but it's still really awkward when...

Amazing documentary about Chinese Weightlifters

This is a documentary about Chinese weightlifters preparing for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. It's in Chinese, but it's the lifting you want huh? It shows a lot of their life before the games, and in the later parts, some crazy world-record breaking lifts. It's roughly 45 minutes long, but so...

I have a pair on order from east bay, but besides them and rogue, no one else carries them. I was googling them earlier and ran across a few discussions that Nike stopped making them and rogue, bought a huge supply? I can't even find them directly on Nike s website. I just thought it was odd. Any...

Wrist Flexibility?

I started olympic lifting today, did some push presses and jerks but fast realized i just couldnt rack the bar on my shoulders and immediately press/jerk. Is this a problem? Will this go away as I become comfortable racking it, or should i do something about it?

Bulking vs Constant Weight?

So I was recently wondering whether or not, for an 85kg lifter who is relatively new but wants to compete @ 85, I should bulk up and then cut down, or just stay at 85kg LEAN and just maintain and gain strength.
