NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! This course will teach you everything you need to know in great detail. There is no doubt about it - having all of this knowledge at your disposal will make you a "walking encyclopedia" of Olympic Weightlifting technique and greatly informed on athletic power enhancement. But we aren't going to leave you hanging with just a bunch of technique in your head. You need to know how to "put it all together" in a routine.
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 DVD 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.
In part three of the four DVDs from the Utah workshop weekend, we get a taste of Dan John's instruction for beginning Olympic weightlifting. Our original idea was this would be primarily for adults who've never lifted Olympic-style, and it's certainly that, however one of the attendees is a competitive Olympic lifting, who told me a couple of Dan's tips changed her lifting forever. So I'm thinking anyone interested in Olympic lifting will get something out of this one.
