Greg Everett | Editorial | April 10 2015 | Comments

Floelite came out to Catalyst Athletics in June 2014 to film, but all of the footage was stolen. They made it back out recently for a second shot. Here it is: ...... Continue reading
Weightlifting Technique Problems: When You’ve Tried Everything & Nothing Works
Matt Foreman | Editorial | March 16 2015 | Comments

One of the fun things about working in a high school is going to other classrooms and seeing the stuff teachers put on their walls. You're almost guaranteed to see a lot of posters with motivational slogans on them. Teachers want kids to feel pumped up about life, so they plaster their rooms with positive little messages.    There's one inspirational quote I've seen a million times. Yo...... Continue reading
Podcasts with Greg Everett
Greg Everett | Editorial | January 23 2015 | Comments

I thought I’d try to collect some of the podcast interviews I’ve done for convenience. Now you can keep yourself occupied while driving to work... or at work. I know there are a few missing, as I can’t remember them all and I only have so much patience for google searches. If you know of one, please post the name in the comments.   Weightlifting Academy   Sports Coa...... Continue reading

I’m talking about the articles you read on this website with titles like Top 5 Assistance Exercises for the Jerk, 10 Things All Weightlifters Should Know, 7 Steps to Better Coaching and so forth.

Reponse to the new USA Weightlifting National Meet Qualification Procedure
Greg Everett | Editorial | August 15 2014 | Comments

For the most part, the reaction among weightlifters to the new USAW national meet qualification procedures has been positive, but there has been a surprising (to me, at least) amount of objection. I want to just address a few examples of these objections directly rather than trying to compose something entirely. The following chunks in quotations were pulled off of various FB posts. Below ...... Continue reading
2014 National Championships Recap
Greg Everett | Editorial | July 22 2014 | Comments

This past weekend, Catalyst Athletics took 10 lifters to the National Championships in Salt Lake City. It was a long weekend, but it was a well-run meet in a great venue. Jes Liao (48 kg) and Blake Barnes (69 kg) were our first lifters on Friday. Both lifters have had a rough past couple months with training. Jes in the last couple months has slept at home only a handful of nights and only tr...... Continue reading
When Athletes and Coaches Need to Just Give Up
Matt Foreman | Editorial | June 23 2014 | Comments

When I was in the 8th grade, my guidance counselor pulled me out of class one day and took me to his office to perform an exorcism on me. You think I’m kidding? Nope. Here’s how it all happened… I was a terrible kid when I was in junior high. I was disrespectful, mouthy, rude, and a huge troublemaker. My teachers openly hated me. Most of them actually told me that. How...... Continue reading
HOAs, Bringing Something to the Table & Just Being Flat-out Lucky
Mike Gray | Editorial | April 2 2014 | Comments

In August of last year my beautiful wife and I bought a brand new 3-story loft that had an attached 2-car garage with ceilings just barely high enough for me to lift in. I was so excited, as I had basically been raised in garage gyms since I started Olympic lifting at Coach Burgener’s years ago. I was finally going to be able to take all my weights out of my buddy’s garage and set up s...... Continue reading

Greg Everett | Editorial | February 17 2014 | Comments

The way you treat the equipment in your gym says a lot about you, not just as an athlete, but as a person. Whether or not you know it, you’re being judged, and if it’s by me, it’s probably harshly. For those of you with good hearts, but not enough experience to know proper facility etiquette yet, here is a handy list of rules to help you take care of the gym you train in, show th......

Why I Don't Travel More for Seminars
Greg Everett | Editorial | February 12 2014 | Comments

I’ve been giving my own Olympic weightlifting seminars for seven or eight years now. I started helping my coach, Mike Burgener, at his seminars in 2006, and began providing my own when the demand was made known to me. Initially, I traveled a reasonable amount across the US and did fairly frequent dates. If you haven’t been around more than a couple years, you’ll have to believe m...... Continue reading
