Matt Foreman | Olympic Weightlifting | January 18 2016 | Comments (1)

Some of you are married, right? Some of you aren’t married, but you’re in a relationship, right? Some of you aren’t in a relationship, but you’ve been in one before, right?   I’m asking these questions because it’ll help you understand this article if you’ve at least had some experience in a somewhat long-term relationship with somebody. If you&rsqu...... Continue reading
Overplaying Your Opponent: Tactics in Olympic Weightlifting Competition
Sergey Bondarenko | Olympic Weightlifting | January 11 2016 | Comments

When you stand on the platform in front of the bar in the dead silence greedily breathing to fill your lungs with air full of shrinking tension and competition spirit, there is no place for thoughts and decisions. You have done all you can during the preparation to get your best form and now you have a chance to show it and either to gain the glory athletes are searching for or return to your gym ......

Ask Greg: How Do I Get Faster in the Olympic Lifts?
Greg Everett | Ask Greg Everett | January 7 2016 | Comments

Jessica Asks: I've been religiously watching your videos for about a month now and am amazed at the speed at which Aimee gets under the bar!! I’m still a novice at Olympic lifting but have been doing CrossFit here in Miami for over three years. I know she has a huge amount of experience and training but are there any exercises and or techniques that will improve my speed in that area? ...... Continue reading
Interview: Carissa Gordon Gump
Matt Foreman | Interviews | January 6 2016 | Comments

We all love those touching stories about athletes who start at the bottom and then go all the way to the top, right? You know the ones I’m talking about. A young kid wanders into a gym one day and learns about a sport. Then years go by as the kid trains hard, competes, and moves up the ladder towards the big time (emotional motivation music playing in the background). One day, the kid finall...... Continue reading

I’ll openly admit right from the beginning that I’m not sure if this article is going to strike a chord with all of you. I hope it will, because it’s an important subject and I’ve definitely got some things to say about it. But I’m not sure where it’ll catch on regarding you and your lifting. Let’s take a shot at it and see how it goes.    ...... Continue reading
The Top 4 Problems With Your Weightlifting Program
Matt Foreman | Olympic Weightlifting | December 28 2015 | Comments (2)

“Which training program should I be following?”   “Can you take a look at my program and tell me if it looks okay?”   “How many times a week should I be squatting?”   “What’s the perfect number of days per week for my program?”   I hear these questions…a lot. There are thousands and thousands of weightlifters ...... Continue reading
Ask Greg: Can't Receive the Snatch Low with Heavier Weights
Greg Everett | Ask Greg Everett | December 24 2015 | Comments (7)

Steven Asks: I'm teaching myself the snatch, with your videos and book, and have a technique question. With a stick or empty bar I receive the bar in a decent squat, but as I put weight on the bar, or as I get tired, I receive higher and higher. My lift turns into a power snatch unintentionally. I'm lifting half my bodyweight, and can do overhead squats with the weight, or actually snatch a ...... Continue reading

These days, it’s much easier than it used to be if you’re an Olympic lifter and you’re looking for a place to train. Because of the CrossFit explosion that’s happened over the last ten years, most cities in this country (and other countries) have multiple gyms where athletes have access to platforms, bumper plates, and bars. All you have to do is pick a CrossFit box gym, an...... Continue reading
Weightlifting Competition Warm-up Room Etiquette
Greg Everett | Olympic Weightlifting | December 21 2015 | Comments (1)

While much warm-up room etiquette is no different than in any other area of life, there are a few issues specific to weightlifting, and an apparent need to reiterate even things that may seem obvious.   First and foremost, be polite and respectful. Whether you’re a first time competitor or a veteran, there is no better way to establish a bad reputation that will follow you forever in ...... Continue reading
Ask Greg: Weightlifting Training Frequency & Volume
Greg Everett | Ask Greg Everett | December 17 2015 | Comments (1)

Mike Asks: Please consider a Newsletter or other forum for discussing the rationale and recovery implications for training multiple days in a row. I know those in the Oly community take it for granted that a 3 or 4 on, 1 off schedule is standard, but to those of us new to the sport it is less obvious why this is so different from any other form of weight training in terms of ability to do th......
