Video of 18 year old Irish weightlifter Clarence Kennedy squatting 265kg. That's 5kg short of a triple body weight squat. :eek:

Manel-

I've seen a lot of people find success with Starting Strength programming. Take a look at it.

I have recently read the book Olympic Weightlifting A COmplete Guide for Athletes and Coaches, but I find it really difficult to decide on which programme to begin.Have you read the book yourself. If you have coould you please tell me which programme I should choose to start practicing olympic weight lifting.
My squat is 70 kg, front squat 60kg, clean and jerk 48kg and snach 34kg.
My body weight is 58 kg.
Thanks a lot.

I have Greg's book and I use it a lot as a reference for technique and skill work. But, for my programming I follow the workouts on this site and have found a lot of success...not to mention this forum is going to help you a ton. If you're just looking for the squat, I still recommend the Starting Strength program. If you want olympic lifting too you can do Greg's programming here. Or you could try doing the programmed oly lifts found here and stick with starting strength for the power lifts--that'll keep you busy. There's really a number of ways to go about this and it all depends on your goals.

Chad, thank you very much for your answer. Only a question, when you say Starting Strength program, you talk about a specific "Starting Strength program", when can I find it?
Thanks a lot, and sorry for my ignorance.

For the last three weeks I've started a new programming. I follow all the olympic lifting wods posted here. then, for my power training, I use Chad Smith's Juggernaut system for four main lifts: high bar back squat Monday, deadlift tuesday, front squat wednesday, push press thursday. I like that its broken into waves, it starts light so you can work volume and form, and you have near max efforts for at least one set every day. It's only been three weeks, but I'm already seeing results. Plus, i think the lifts I've chosen relate strongly to the work to be done here in weightlifting which is my main goal. I guess what it comes down to is that there is a lot out there, take a look, try a few things out, see what you like and stick with it. Make sure your doing the movements correctly and I'm sure you'll see progress.

BTW, has anyone else heard of or tried Chad Smiths system? If so, thoughts?

Hy Chad, I wanted to ask you if the "Technique Development Program" in Gregs bookwould be ok to stard with. Because as I have understood you need to improve the technique before loading. Thanks a lot

I think Greg is probably the right person to ask in this case Manel.
