I saw some crappy clean and jerk photo demos in the NY Post or Daily News the other day.
Sh*tty power cleans are sweeping the nation!

Actually, they'll probably say "Olympic lifting is dangerous" in the same way that "squats are dangerous" and they'll turn away from it. Poor coaching is only going to hurt the sport.

I agree to disagree with that, because a determined individual knows an idiot when they see them!

I know. At least she's working out instead of sitting in front of the television eating bon-bons. You've got to start somewhere. My first clean was 20 lbs or something...

I suppose so Yael, but for someone that is so incredible of an expert that they are featured in the newspaper, you would think they know something about proper deadlift form.

Yeah right. How many personal trainers don't know anything about proper deadlift form? And how many people featured in newspapers are really experts?

LOL. But really my point is that it gets really boring talking about how much other people's workouts suck.
