Strength & Conditioning - Greg Everett: Week 2, Day 2

Greg Everett


Olympic Weightlifting

Greg Everett literally wrote the book on Olympic weightlifting - when he was trying to learn the sport he couldn't find the resources he needed, so he created them himself. Now a gym owner and full-time coach, Greg shares three weeks of his weightlifting programming with us.


The intent of these three weeks is to balance building strength and correct postures. Greg's intention is also to give the athlete enough exposure to the classic lifts, or variants, that they will ingrain proper movement and an ability to hold the technique well.
