The Olympic Weightlifting Thread

It's about time we have one. Let's post videos, articles, tutorials, and whatever you can think of to make your snatch and C&J better.

I didn't know how much my body was missing before I tried these two lifts, the most notorious being flexibility. That's where it has to start. Take a look at the "candle squat" position here, which will test your overall flexibility:

Quote:
Stand up straight with your feet together and your toes curled up. Then lift your arms above your head, holding a book on your open palms. Keeping your heels on the ground and your arms vertical with the elbows locked, squat down as far as you can without leaning forward.


I bet unless you have specifically been working on it, you can get anywhere close to being parallel, let alone going any lower. Try it. Link to full article with other tests:

The California strength videos are awesome, they break everything down step by step.

Learned a lot from the clean videos.

I recently subscribed to Bryce Lewis' YouTube channel, and found this link in one of his videos very informative (not just related to oly lifting, but should be useful for anybody with mobility issues):

https://www.evernote.com/pub/bryce12...b-2905ceb2223d

Basically a whole range of different mobility exercises categorized to different body parts.

If you are a person looking for a good read, check out Greg Everett's Olympic Weightlifting (second ed). I was lucky enough to train with Greg and his sister once. They are a wealth of knowledge.

Yep.

I'm glad this thread was started. I don't mean to shamelessly plug my blog, but it's about the sport of weightlifting as a whole (at least my attempt at it).

A video I would revisit a bit before finding a lifting coach:

Glad you posted the links, very informative and pro looking blog. I 'd your fb page. Finding a coach would be the best, but a challenge in my town. I'll see if my university has a weightlifting team.

Btw, world weightlifting championship 2015 has been awarded to Houston, TX. Can't wait!

Awesome and thanks. My knowledge is limited in the sport but I love it. I'm not trying to come off as an expert but rather a fan who trains in the sport as well.

Right off the bat, watch the rounding of your back on the first pull.

Your back should stay flat and straight and not change position during the first pull. And your first pull doesn't have to be fast as the most powerful portion is the second and third. Don't rip the bar off the ground.

I'm including a pic of what I'm trying to say. Granted this is an Chinese Olympian, but his back position before the bar meets the hips is what I'm referring to. But I'm not a coach, this is just what my coach tells me.

But overall not bad in my opinion.

Exactly what I said about myself. First pull looked lazy. I have this terrible habit of rounding my back and it drives me nuts.

I do the same thing on DLs, I need to work on keeping my hips down more, I think when I concentrate on this it prevents the rounding.

Haven't done many cleans yet but I imagine I'll have the same issue.

Try paused first pulls. Hold about shin height for 1-2 seconds and finish the lift. It may help.

For anyone learning these lifts who want to get good the number one error I see is that beginners don't learn from a top down approach. Beginners always want to start from the bottom when they should learn the movement first from the hi-hang, hang, above the knee, below the knee, and then the floor.

Few other things I notice are

1. don't get full extension
2. they don't actively pull themselves under the bar


Trnsprtr put up a great photo collage of what the back/hips should look like during the pull. Most beginners I hardly see them do this correctly. They don't know how to load up their hamstrings and they have weak posture which results in a rounding of the back like in Dylllos video. I think this happens because beginners are learning to pull from the ground first.

If they picked up the weight and brought it to the hang position and then lowered it to just below the knee by pushing their but back and a slight knee bend then their hip/back angle would look a lot better.

This is an old video but here I am pulling 90kg.
