Weightlifting Program Design Case Study, Greg Everett
Weightlifting Program Design Case Study
Greg Everett  |  June 29 2010  |  Olympic Weightlifting
Program design is one of those topics that is overwhelming both to read and write about. Most literature is necessarily nebulous and vague, and individuals interested in learning more often find themselves inundated with a collection of concepts that fail to fit together easily than with a set of practical rules they can implement. So instead of talking about ideas in this article, I want to run through the process of actually designing a real program and discuss the rationale for various de......

In Your Corner: Marketing, Media and PR for MMA Fighters and Managers (Book Excerpt)
Yael Grauer  |  May 29 2010  |  Editorial
The following is excerpted from In Your Corner: Marketing, Media and PR for MMA Fighters and Managers by Yael Grauer and Brant DeLorenzo. Interview Tips & Tricks There's a few things you should know about interviewers before they show up, or before they call. If they are writing for a website, they are usually either not getting paid at all or not getting paid very much. Although they may be incredibly polite and professional, most MMA writers are primarily fans. Being respectful to......
The Acid-Alkaline Question, Yael Grauer
The Acid-Alkaline Question
Yael Grauer  |  April 30 2010  |  Nutrition
When I was still in high school, I found myself cooking food at a really bizarre dinner party. One of my friends happened to be renting a room from a macrobiotic guru in town, and all of the macroneurotics (as they called themselves) would show up to cook and eat strange rice variations and weird vegetables. The first thing I remember is getting yelled at for rinsing veggies in warm water. "This is supposed to be a raw salad," someone scolded, "and you're cooking it." I also ......

Championship Weightlifting by Tommy Kono: Book Excerpt
Tommy Kono  |  March 31 2010  |  Olympic Weightlifting
We were fortunate enough to get a preview from Tommy Kono of his upcoming second book, expected out later this year. As the following article explains, this new book will delve into the mental game of weightlifting—lessons that can surely be applied to any sport. Kono was one of the greatest weightlifters in the sport, and his insights are invaluable. —Greg Everett I won two Olympic gold medals, one silver, was eight consecutive years World Champion, set 26 world records sprea......
Back Training for Weightlifting, Greg Everett
Back Training for Weightlifting
Greg Everett  |  February 27 2010  |  Olympic Weightlifting
Because the classic lifts and common supplemental exercises such as squats and pulls naturally provide a considerable workload for the muscles of the lower and middle back, generally this area will require somewhat less specific training than the anterior and lateral aspects of the torso. For convenience, we can classify core work in terms of body regions, type of muscle activation, and type of movement, and do so in a manner that facilitates effective training. The two broadest categories a......
2009: A Year in Review, Greg Everett
2009: A Year in Review
Greg Everett  |  December 28 2009  |  Editorial
My usual practice of blasting out last-minute articles as I suddenly realize the new issue of the PM is due out shortly has been failing me this month. Despite having a number of articles started and notes for a few more, I’ve been wholly unable to make any progress. So instead I’m going to try something new: a Catalyst Athletics retrospective. Those of you who have been around for a while are well aware that the latter part of 2009 has contained quite a bit of excitement for us. ......
Percentage-Based Max Effort Black Box - MEBB, Michael Rutherford
Percentage-Based Max Effort Black Box - MEBB
Michael Rutherford  |  November 28 2009  |  General Training
One poor assumption I have made with regards to lecturing on the Max Effort Black box deals with the athlete’s experience with finding the daily max effort. I’m up there babbling about finding that best effort for 5, 3 or 1 on a particular move and then suddenly it hits me—The majority of my audience is lost. I often times get the same tilted head, glazed over look my Airedales give me when I’m talking to them. It’s bad coaching on my part and I regret that. Failur......
Controlling the Tornado: Planning Your Weightlifting Training, Matt Foreman
Controlling the Tornado: Planning Your Weightlifting Training
Matt Foreman  |  October 28 2009  |  Olympic Weightlifting
This article will be focused on planning out your training program. And you’re out of your mind if you think I’m going to start with a slogan that you’ve already heard a million times like "Failing to plan is planning to fail." This slogan is a proven truth, but it should be painfully obvious. I shouldn’t have to remind you that planning is important any more than I should have to remind you not to eat yellow snow. However, there is obviously a good reason w......

Teaching the Olympic Lifts in the CrossFit Group Setting: Part 2
Greg Everett  |  September 29 2009  |  General Training
Before we continue on this particular adventure, I want to provide some clarification on a few items from the first part of the article. It has been pointed out to me that some of my remarks offended certain individuals, and because this was not my intention, I’m going to take a moment to apologize for any offense that was taken, and to provide my rationale for those remarks. While I may make jokes of certain things, my opinions on them are never without reason. These reasons are not on......

Teaching the Olympic Lifts in the CrossFit Group Setting
Greg Everett  |  August 30 2009  |  General Training
Sometimes your clients are confused. It’s true. Some want to squat to big padded balls instead of just learning where their asses are and squatting like grown-ups all the way to the bottom. Some want to do low-bar back squats. And some aren’t very interested in learning the snatch and clean & jerk. Fortunately, as a trainer or coach, it’s your responsibility to train your clients according to what they need rather than what they want—if they knew what they needed, the......
