But in my opinion no matter how great a definite guide would be, it can not cope with one 'minor' factor: weaknesses, every one has different weaknesses and how to cope with that is IMO the job of a competent Coach, he will identify what needs extra practice and can offer the right exercises.

This really sums it up.

Writing a definitive anything in fitness is like juggling a bunch of greased snakes. You're going to take your eye of one for a second and it's going to bite you in the ass.

I've read lots of stuff about O lifting, been coached by some very good coaches and now do a fair bit of coaching and I wouldn't even know where to start with writing a definitive guide to O lifting. Different coaches have different philosophies, different athletes have different strengths, weaknesses, resources, genetics etc and a lot of it comes down to the coaches experience.

But if in doubt, lift heavy stuff overhead and do squats, they're always good
