Olympic Weightlifting

  • Start at Day 1 if this is your first introduction to the program
  • If you want to compete or have the required skills and training, you can sign up to follow my own personal cadre of competitive athletes' weightlifting intermediate and advance training programs which post every week.
  • As for terminology, it is simple: (X/3)4 means do one lift 3 times for 4 sets. For a clean and push press, you may see (X/2+1)4, which means do 2 cleans then 1 push press as your set and perform for 4 sets


Day 52 of 100

1)Snatch: (X/2)5
2)Clean: (X/2)5
3)Jerk: (X/3)5
4)Front Squat: (X/4)5


This is the great Turkish champion, Naim Süleymano?lu. He was called the Pocket Hercules. Only 4' 10" tall. He was the first and the only lifter who snatched 2.5 times his body weight and also is the second of only seven lifters to clean and jerk three times his body weight.
