They do a ton of technique work in this video. I'm wondering what the general philosophies are on this. Is it mostly a Russian-style thing? Are they just deloading after a competition?

Yeah, I became a fan of Sa Jae Hyouk after the last Olympics.

Jang Mi-Ran is very strong as well. She got gold at Beijing and at the last few World Championships:


Now for a less beastly Korean woman. Yoon Jin-Hee got silver at Beijing:

The consistent them is: perfect repetition, perfect repetition, perfect repetition.

Yeah...in the first video Daniel posted I think, I had to watch the clean recovery like 3-4 times. It was one of the smoothest I've seen.


How does some of that stuff compare with what you've experienced training Bulgarian style? Has the frequent maximal training helped your technique?

It only helps your technique if you're smart and a stickler for technique but it definitely does make you more consistent up in the 90%+ range. Now, I don't add any weight onto my warmups until I do each one correct. If I feel it, I go for a PR, if not, I go as heavy as I can while maintaining form. That's what I gather Broz does with his guys from the few times I've spoken with him. John is big on technique and it's something I overlooked during my "experiment".
