body extension in snatch and clean

Hello! I have been weightlifting since the start of this year (after almost 2 years of crossfit, while my previous background, years ago, is in running and European soccer), and my main technical difficulty is (beside mobility)that I can not get my body fully extended after the pull. Does anyone...

Olympic lifts with regular barbell?

I have plates that aren't good for an olympic bar, and I can get a regular bar for much cheaper. I know that the rotating sleeves save your joints, but what are the exercises that can be done safely without them, and which are those that absolutly require them? I can choose between 180cm...

Can anyone suggest me a static and or dynamic stretching routine?

Bumper Plate Repair (and what are they made of?)

The club I train at has a beautiful set of old style Eleiko bumpers that are very popular with lifters - far more so than the modern ones. Recently a crew of bodybuilders turned up and started using them for those douchebag barbell corner rows that such people are so infatuated with and the angled...

Clean and Jerk

Hi all, so how quickly can you expect your strength to improve as a beginner in olympic lifts. Clean, clean and jerk, snatch? what is a hard, but realistic time frame to pump up the weights, is it slow to get stronger or can you progress quickly? any feed back is appreciated. Cheers.

How many of you squat everyday?

Just wondering how many of you squat everyday? I've read up on the bulgarian approach and read the whole broz thread who also suggests squatting everyday to the max, which is what I have done for the last 2.5 weeks (singles to max then 5 back off sets with 2-3 reps with 90%). I'm pretty new to...
