Weightlifting DVD Preview

Greg Everett’s book Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes & Coaches has been called “the best book available on Olympic weightlifting” and “a must read for all athletes and coaches involved in the movements.”

Now the companion video is available to demonstrate the teaching and learning progressions for the snatch, clean and jerk that are presented in the book.

Viewers are guided through a complete progression for the Olympic lifts, starting from foundational elements such as the squat and breath control and finishing with the complete competition lifts. Included is actual training footage of Catalyst Athletics weightlifters.

Good preview showing a clear synopsis of the principal phases of the lifts. As shown here, form is everything. I particularly appreciate the use of female demonstrators, since they emphasize that male bulk and strength are not the primary requirement to perform these lifts. While I am too old (65) to compete, I am working on the snatch and clean and jerk because of their loading on all muscle groups. Unfortunately, there are no lifting coaches in my area, so I am learning on my own, which is definitely the hard way. The book and DVD are in my future, as soon as I get my next Social Security check.

Cody thanks again for your mtbliioy magic on Friday . I'm no longer moving around like Mr. Burns from The Simpsons. My back is still tender at the location of the injury, but my all-around mtbliioy and movement improved dramatically.

Josh -

We currently don't have a downloadable version of the Weightlifting DVD Guide.

Does the DVD content also cover common errors and fixes for the lifts that we will see in our athletes? Thanks!

Purchased the book and the DVD but can't get the video to play (only the audio) on my Mac. Any suggestions?

Colin -

Try updating the version of the video player you are using or try using VLC media player if you are viewing on the computer.

I have the same question as Mark. Does the dvd cover common errors and fixes that we can possibly fix for our athletes?
Greg Everett 2014-09-24
Greg - It does not cover error correction. It goes through my teaching progressions for the snatch, clean and jerk.
Greg 2014-09-25
Thanks for your fast reply. Ordering the book and dvd package today. Looking forward to study the material!

There is no book/dvd bundle on Amazon. We sell the book and DVD together on our site, but they are separate products on Amazon.

Hi I purchased the book and would love the download dvd. Great breakdown and photos....I am learning the proper way to lift. Would like to follow a video example also. How many devices can it be downloaded on? Example a computer and a phone for portability? Thanks.
Kathy - Once you purchase the Video guide, you will be able to download it multiple times. I am not sure of the quality of the video on a mobile device but it will be just fine on any computer.
