Trying to work out if this is a suitable place to place information on/about DVDs.
The Complete Olympic Lifting DVD
, which is only available to purchase online, is a short DVD, approximately 30+ minutes and not necessarily considered cheap for the considerably short length of viewing time it gives; , I'd rather a DVD get to the point, however, and not go on and on and thereby necessitate that I sit there for hours just to glean a few relevant points from it, and in that sense, the DVD does deliver.
It is to the point and every point is succinctly covered.
Exercises covered in the DVD are:
The DVD covers each topic using progressive techniques and I have to say that after watching it just once, I was happy to try the snatch and felt very comfortable with form. Though I debated about whether or not to get the DVD, for several months, I'm glad I did. Not only will it be helpful for the exercises mentioned but the "progressive" exercise patterns, leading up to the final move, can also be used in their own right.
