Good article. Now that I'm back to lifting, I need to order me a pair. And did anyone else notice that the site abbreviated "Featured Articles" to farticles?

Good read Aimee!
Really cool pictures.

I still wish I had been a fit athletic kid. Growing up in Russia and not entering Heavy Athletics kid club (that's how Weightlifting is known) and not playing enough with my dad's kettlebells. Talk about missed opportunities.

Instead opted for cakes and food at my grandmas.

Does anyone have a big picture of Vasiliy Alexeev pressing the barbell in a river?

Kelly Starrett told me about some new-ish lifting shoes that are reasonably priced...G, Aimee...any ideas on these?

Nike's look neat, looks like a plastic heel but I bet if that's for Chinese team - the shoes might be excellent!

Adidas shoes look funky.
