American Weightlifting is the story of a sport in turmoil and the athletes and coaches whose passion drives them to succeed despite the odds. Amateur athletes and coaches with little or no financial support struggle to compete with the professionals who dominate the sport internationally. Training in garages, working full time jobs, ignored by the public and the media, American weightlifters work to compete with the best in the world.
Olympic Weightlifting: A Video Guide to Learning & Teaching The Olympic Lifts
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.
