Why did the man climb the mountain?

Because the mountain was in the way.

Agreed!! Lean Oly lifters have a rawness to their physique that is awesome.

Olympic lifters are definitely awesome, not overly big but just crazy looking muscle with some serious density and strength. I will be experimenting with this in the future .

The catch phase of the bar is where things take time to really learn. There are several different opinions on training oly lifts, IMO, there's more than one way to skin a cat, possum, racoon, insert critter of preference.

Training to get under the bar on a snatch is way harder than a clean. However, the snatch is awesome!

You could build a program that utilizes all the basic strength moves of oly lifting. Still do the actual lifts, but go heavy on the moves to build strength.
Go lighter on the actual lifts until you really get the feel for getting under the bar and catching while your down.

Front squats
Overhead squats
Back squats
High pulls with both clean grip, and snatch grip
SLDL
Good mornings
Standing presses, Push presses, Snatch width presses
There's a few more but you get the idea.

This video is worth watching. Dan John is talking about oly lifting, and covers several areas.

The Video FitCast- Episode 6

Also check out Tommy Kono's vids.

YouTube - Tommy Kono lecture/ instruction on Olympic Lifting Part 1

YouTube - Tommy Kono lecture/ instruction on Olympic Lifting Part 2


Go have some fun with it. You could still do a bit of chest work but I would put it last in any session. Save the energy for building the delts needed to push heavy weight up. Something to think about.

got abs?



Wheels!


He must workout.
Great f*cking post! That's what I would have wanted to say. But I don't know. Call me old school (or just behind the times, whatever) I think the two should mostly be held seperate. Like wanabe said, pick 8-12 weeks, focus on them, do what you need to do, and then switch it up again. You will lose little to NO strength. Promise.

You asked Jwood why he wanted to do power cleans. I assumed his only reason was because he wanted to.
