why are most olympic lifters so weak

Ive been reading a lot of olympic journals on this board and others and i find that most olympic weightlifters amature cant squat 405, cant row 200lbs... i find it funny how so many powerlifters who got strong on basic lifts can switch to olympic lifts and if they have decent form they can out...

I am fat

The first step is admitting you have a problem... It's been so long since I last competed that I've really let my diet go, since there was never any reason to lose weight.

Whenever a weightlifter demonstrates great strength, he is an exception

Here we have a superheavyweight Russian weightlifter toying with a 360 kg in the deadlift. You have never heard of him. He will probably never qualify to the Olympics. He has a modest 230 kg clean and jerk. And has a near 400 kg pull, and he is a nobody. Could probably outpull most of the...

Why Crossfitters shouldn't do Olympic lifts

Ilya Linn had a better total then the 105's and in the 105+ nobody broke a 250 c&j let alone a 260.

Is it the workout regiments? The lack of advertisement for the sport? The lack of access to 'medicine'? I'm just curious... The US isn't too far behind in other sports compared to the rest of the world, but in weightlifting, I can't recall the last time a male lifter won a gold medal at the...
