Default Suggested Videos

I apologize in advance, as Iím sure this subject has been mentioned, but in doing a search, could not find a solid reference.

Iíd like to order a DVD or two for reference purposes and to watch until the Snatch, C/J are burned into my brain. Along with of course many more hours / days of practice.

Could you give me some suggestions as to which DVDís to buy?

Iím also considering Tommy Konoís book?

Any and all comments appreciated.

Thanks.

1. Find some Olympic lifting videos on YouTube.
2. Download them as FLV's using this: http://www.techcrunch.com/get-youtube-movie/
3. Convert them from FLV's to either MPEG's or AVI's using this: http://www.ripzor.com/flvconverter.html
4. Open the MPEG or AVI file using Virtual Dub: http://virtualdub.sourceforge.net/

You can then watch the video using the arrow keys to get a frame-by-frame, or go to "Video -> Frame Rate -> Change to ___ frames per second" to put it in slow-mo. It's a very useful program.

Once you begin to train the lifts, you can also record yourself with a digital camera, and watch the frame-by-frame in Virtual Dub. Having someone critique you live is not always possible or easy.

(It's probably already an MPEG file when it comes off the camera, so no need for conversion.)
