The Point: Technique for Olympic Weightlifting
Greg Everett | Olympic Weightlifting | January 17 2012 | Comments (7)

I spend a lot of time on this website and elsewhere discussing weightlifting technique, often in intolerably boring detail. Why technical proficiency is necessary and important is been mentioned with regard to things like CrossFit™ and athletic training, but it occurred to me last night that I can’t think of a time when I’ve said explicitly why it’s important for… we......

Conditioning Circuit Design
Greg Everett | General Training | January 11 2012 | Comments (3)

Nathan Says: Hi Greg and Aimee, Before I ask a question, I'd just like to say thank you for all the knowledge you have provided in your book. It is simply the best book on the market and will be for a long time to come. It has made me a better athlete, but more importantly, a better coach for it. Thank You. I have always been an advocate of the shorter conditioning circuit as opposed to the 20+...... Continue reading
Maybe They're Not THAT Bad: Personalities in the Gym
Matt Foreman | Editorial | January 11 2012 | Comments (6)

I’m just going to ask you a blunt question, okay? Here it goes.   How often do you have to spend time in the gym with people you don’t like?   Think about the times, present or past, when you have to be around somebody you basically can’t stand. This might be somebody you have to train with as an athlete, somebody you coach, or maybe somebody you have to work w...... Continue reading
The Simplest Olympic Weightlifting Program in the World
Greg Everett | Olympic Weightlifting | January 5 2012 | Comments (83)

I've written down this same program so many times for so many people, I thought it would make sense to put it down here for other people to use. I'm sure things that look a lot like this have been floating around for decades because it makes perfect sense and is remarkably simple. I think I may have stuck it or something very similar in a newsletter at some point in the last couple years as well. ...... Continue reading
A Thank You and a Warning
Matt Foreman | Editorial | December 26 2011 | Comments (7)

You don’t do sloppy work at your job, do you?   If you’re an airplane mechanic, you don’t just spray some WD40 on a malfunctioning engine and then say, “That’s all I can do. I hope this sucker holds together.”   If you’re a paramedic, you don’t give an aspirin to a screaming car accident victim and then go sit down to have a sandwich.&n...... Continue reading
Flexibility for the Overhead Squat
Greg Everett | Mobility & Training Preparation | December 12 2011 | Comments (6)

Bob Asks: Sorry if this is covered elsewhere, but I could not find it in Greg’s book (which I own) or on the website. I am 44 and just starting O-lifting lessons here in Singapore. Working the normal progressions w/ a shower curtain rod. Am nearly 6’5”, so flexibility is a problem for me…have made reasonable progress with the legs, but seem to be stuck on my overhead s......

They'll Never Take Us Alive
Matt Foreman | Editorial | November 30 2011 | Comments (9)

Does anybody here ever feel like they suffer from paranoia? I guess before you all start answering yes or no, let’s get an actual definition of what paranoia is. Paranoid thinking is when a person is heavily influenced by the fear that there is some kind of threat against them, and this fear can become so intense that the person becomes delusional. Basically, being paranoid means t......

Olympic Weightlifting & Conditioning
Greg Everett | Ask Greg Everett | November 29 2011 | Comments (11)

Ryan Asks: I have a question on your workouts. I like your programming for the Olympic lifting and find that extremely valuable and necessary. Do you recommend high intensity metcons too? I follow your lifting but find my metcon lagging. Do you recommend both? I want to train for next years CF games. Greg Says: The answer will depend entirely on the athlete's intentions, so......

Some Nice Soothing Music to Piss Us All Off: Music for Training Motivation
Matt Foreman | General Training | November 15 2011 | Comments (8)

You all like music, right?   I’m going to assume the answer to that question is yes, and I’ll also wager that you probably like to have music playing when you train. Many of you have probably shopped around on I-Tunes and set up some playlists that are specifically for the gym. You picked music that makes you feel good, the type of stuff that gets your motor running and builds u...... Continue reading
A Few Words with Henry Rollins
Greg Everett | Editorial | November 14 2011 | Comments (7)

I've been a big fan of Henry Rollins for many years, from Black Flag to Rollins Band to his books and spoken word shows/CDs/DVDs. He was a very early inspiration to me as a model of self-reliance, motivation and work ethic—a guy who just wanted to put his head down and get things done without ostentation or applause, and who did nothing less than exactly what he was inspired to do. Rolli...... Continue reading
