Win

Recently, I came across a joke specific to our sport that will get a nervous laugh, especially for those of masters age.
Dave's upcoming book is on the bent press, an old technique which allows more weight overhead than most every other movement.
Every so often we get somebody drifting into our sport who thinks he is going to get rich.
Looking back from my current stage of life, much has now changed for youth weightlifters.
The NPFL ups the ante significantly. Take a sport that you and I can do, spin it into a team that we can follow, and yes, we will be there.
Like the music itself, this is highly subject to the tastes of its listeners. If it helps, use it. If it doesn't, don't.
I feel the need to discuss some common mistakes that I see occurring frequently at local weightlifting meets.
The public seems to demand that all instructors are certified. This seems to provide comfort, but how useful is it?
Soon I turn 32, but I am stronger than I've ever been (except for a moment in college when I was thirty pounds heavier and squatting three inches higher).
Schools insist on equality of result. No one fails and no one's self-esteem is damaged - and no one is prepared for real life.
Prior to a national weightlifting competition, I took a non-traditional approach to my training. What follows is an outline of the program I created.
It is often possible to catch yourself, take a breath, and recover. At other times you may pass out.
Don't ignore the lifts because you aren't able to reap the benefits right now. Use your warm up as a place to perfect your technique.
Willpower is the ability to regulate your actions, to direct yourself to achieve goals, and to overcome obstacles.
This exercise is one of my favorite events for a reason - it has serious impact on your strength and major carryover into your lifting.
As a lifelong follower of weightlifting, I can say interest in the sport is at an all-time high. So there will continue to be a need for competent instruction.
Most laypersons will bet that weightlifters have little jumping ability. They are just too big and slow, right? This is now refuted frequently, but the Soviets actually refuted it decades ago.
