what accessory lifts do you guys do besides the regulars?
I'll trade you a couple rare liaos for a couple rare lus. Maybe some rare Tians.
core routine is based on classics, squats and pulls.
sometimes i do deficit deadlifts, something with a flexed spine for dem erector gainz, bench press, dips, pull ups, pendaly rows, ohp, lar raises and facepulls.
once in a while i do some curls just to bro out a little bit
Isn't bench press negative for weightlifting. I read somewhere Chinese only do weighted push ups and sometimes dips for chest/triceps because bench press damages the shoulders and icnreases risk of injury
i do close grip wich is really really easy in the shoulder. i wouldnt go super wide powerlifting style either.
a close grip bench si actually less prone to injury on the shoulder than dips actually, it just tends tu tighten you up a little bit so you need to stretch more
its weird nobody remembers asen eventhough he was a olympic gold medalist
Many of the 80s lifters are not remembered.

I got a lead on a secretive weightlifting club in my area. The gyms here are all carpet and chrome, plus the YMCA (which is also shit)...Not a bumper plate to be found.
I saw this 60 year old guy front squatting 275lbs at the YMCA. He wore adipowers just like mine. I struck up a conversation and turns out there is a sort of weightlifting club his friend runs nearby. It's only known through word of mouth, no website, no adverts, so you have to know someone to get in... He gave me his number, so I'm gonna call tomorrow and try and set this thing up. It's a Christmas miracle !
Just thought I'd blogpost because I'm amped to start weightlifting with weightlifters.
I know you're just playing around, but in case anyone is wondering, pec training can help stabilize the shoulder joint if you're having issues. In this case, the lifter (ehab?) looks like he's really just doing it for his pressing muscles in general, not particularly focused on pecs or any other singular muscle.
Hey guise, i realized my cardiovascular condition and breathing is awfully shit, so i decided to try swimming on my off days from gym, on a more HIIT style, do you think it will affect my recovery to the gym to much?
having a go at all the people shitposting about benching the other day saying it was useless and you don't need it. Yes weighted pushups are different, but why neglect a muscle group when it's easy to throw something like that or bench in is beyond me
On the flip side of that it's all gray areas. I know I need a bit more pec work to balance out my shoulder, and I know PLENTY of guys that need no pec work whatsoever and have never even considered it. For tons of guys it's totally inconsequential. They'll bench because it makes their lockout stronger and think nothing more of it. Other guys will never bench because their pecs get so tight that it fucks up their overhead position a best and results in rotator cuff damage at worst. Just gotta be mindful of yourself you know
Lap swimming is a hell of a lot more difficult then most people realize. You very will may find yourself burning out.
Just throw some kettlebell work supersetted with abs or gigj rep dumbbell onto the end of your workouts. Go jogging on your off days, or in the mornings before your session.
I tell you what though. Here's my prediction. Ilya jerks 250 at rio 2016, a full 17kg more than he did in 2012 in a lighter weight class. THEN maybe 262 in 2019 president's cup or worlds, THEN 273 in tokyo 2020.
After jerking 275 weighing in at 135kg, he will stabilize it, be given the down signal, then suffer a massive aneurysm and die, draped over the 5 reds with a thumbs up showing, and giving one last shoutout to LG
It may sound strange, but i have a good pool and my father stuff to go swimming, but not a good pair of shoes for jogging, am im going to be easily burned out? I tried today, and i felt much more tired because of my breathing and heart than with my muscles, i guess, tomorrow i will see if this fucks me up at the gym.
But maybe i should delay my cutting a little, i am weighting 97kgs and wanted to go to at least 90kgs before seriously bulking, since i want to stay at the 94kgs class, but i mind become to easily fatigated if i try to go on a cut while getting used to it.
>you will never massage Tian's powerful tree trunk legs
Klokov was 19 in that competition.
17 y/o Ilya for comparison.
>the greatest weightlifter of all time.
Something I notice with Vardanian is his overhead position is relatively far forward compared to most lifters, and seems very 'arm dominant'. Is this an illusion caused by his anatomy? If not, is it particular to him, or are there other lifters that don't exhibit a 'standard' lockout?
Holy shit, is this real?
Lel I have copeted twice even if I just started Oly lifting in September... 85-115 in the -85kg weight class so I think you can say I don't even lift (I have a 165 kg back squat so my technique is absolutely shit)
no it doesn't
the difference in the atmosphere between a comp and a training session are huge
someone who has done a comp with 20+ people watching them is more likely to hit the same weight as someone who has never competed before and the whole thing is new to them
Once your numbers are good enough to qualify for nationals, start competing. Stop wasting time with your "everyone's a winner" bullshit.
>hehe I won gold weighing 200lbs and snatching less than bodyweight, I have comp experience
its nothing to do with everyones a winner
its about experience
you don't lose anything from it, and you learn what its like to lift under actual pressure and what its like when you have a huge group of people watching you
if you think there is no difference between a training session and a comp you're either superman or retarded
>if you think there is no difference between a training session and a comp
When has this been said? Never.
Obviously if your numbers are good enough to lift for nationals, youre going to probably do less in a comp. But the point is, you're not far off from whatever your high level goal is.
Your dyel ass wants to delay training to go play at the fucking kidding pool for cool points.
>there is a difference
>but instead of doing some mess around comps when you're first learning you should instead wait until you're good enough to nationals, and then embarrass yourself the first few times by bombing because turns out there's a fucking huge difference between doing a couple reps in the gym with your coach and having 20+ people at minimum staring solely on you, where you have to get it right with no mistakes otherwise you'll get redlighted
>until you're good enough to nationals
Just because you have training numbers good enough to get into nats, doesnt mean youre god enough to get into nats. Cognitive dissonance? You just said this yourself a few posts ago.
>and then embarrass yourself the first few times by bombing
This is going to happen regardless of your numbers going in.
>turns out there's a fucking huge difference between doing a couple reps in the gym with your coach
Of course, you say this like its some unknown truth.
Doesnt change the fact you're wasting money and time doing comps when youre dyel as fuck.
i never once said that just because you can lift the qualifing numbers you will go to nationals
thats not what we are even talking about
so you'd rather bomb at nationals as opposed to bombing at a local meet? and then you say local comps are a waste of money
you need to have breaks anyway and if you learn from it it's hardly wasted time
>so you'd rather bomb at nationals as opposed to bombing at a local meet?
You're a retard dude. I'm going to type this again, please read it. dont skim, read it.
Once you're training numbers are good enough to qualify for nationals, start competing.
This doesnt mean your first comp will be at fucking nationals.
>South Korea's weightlifting authorities on Monday suspended an Olympic gold medalist for 10 years for allegedly beating up a junior weightlifter, officials said.
I think back in the 80's a lot of the top lifters had probably done a lot of pressing early in their career as the press was being phased out. A lot of the lifters from back then didn't really get their head through anywhere close to lifters now days.
Look at pics of pisarenko.
It took me 2 afternoons in 5 months and costed me 0€ because I'm in a club. I did awful numbers but I'm happy I did it
Pic is my first bar ever in comp : not even bw snatch but a good experience
Yes it is one of my main problems... I can't press tha bar with a snatch grip when I'm in a deep squat position... I work hard to correct it... 2 years of powerlifting and messing around doing curls and bench are the reason of this..
Not London, Paris
I'm 1m81 82 kilos, I don't have any calves so it might be why I look like I weight more (even if you are the first one to say so)
I think you should change your trip to MrCharming <3
More like mister semi-grin punchable faggot face.
Why is /fit/ so kind today, th-thanks
C'mon this pic is like 3 yo man. What scares me is that you have a pic of my face named MrFaggot on your computer. What did I do to you ?
something about slapping cheeks sometime ago in the past.
another 85kg nat lifter who i met today has a vid of Sa beating up woo man on his phone.
i heard one of the coach and the nat lifter and couple others talked while i was packing up so i didnt know if it was just a rumor or not
its a shame because hwang is the same ages as me and injured his back so he trained along with me most of the time
pic related hwang 2 weeks ago
Yeah it's what I thought too...
A black guy in my gym (snatched 165 in the -105 weight class) is a bouncer and I saw him kick out 3 jacked dudes by grabbing them and throwing them at the door like is they weighted 60 kg
according to this article
at the end of the year party on 12/21 Sa, Hwang, and 4 other weightlifters were there. Sa said "I've been good to you why are you spreading lies about me?" After 30 minutes, Sa beat Hwang. The others separated them but Sa returned to the bar beating him more saying "You need to be beaten more so come out".
Hwang escaped to his grandmothers house and the family called the police.
According to Hwang, Sa slapped him in the face with a slipper for not having good manners 1-2 months ago.
most of the korean article states that
1. Sa was really drunk
2. Sa beat hwang because of a rumor
3. Hwang says that he didnt make any rumors but blames him for it
Sa eventually said he was sorry to Hwang and his family
Hwang is currently in hospital because of his left broken cheek bone
i dont think he deserved any of this and now i have zero respect for Sa
>Everyone's a winner
You're an idiot. It's about getting competition jitters out early instead of waiting a year and then suddenly doing it in front of a crowd and having the competition setting. Sure as hell won't win anything.
Has Sa got all depressed and alcoholic and fighty since his 2012 injury and subsequent failures?
He should go hang out with Aramnau
And man, I wouldn't want to get punched in the face by a man who CJd 212 at 77. That power + fight adrenaline would be insane.
So. I'd like to watch some lifting like this in competitions, but i dont know where to begin or whats a good starting point to learn.
Really wanna follow this shit during the Olympics this year.
The power he could put into a punch would be massively higher than some fag who does a few curls occasionally. Obviously he doesn't have the punching skill to make full use of it, but comparing two talentless angry drunks, the guy that cleans 213 is going to hit a hell of a lot harder
What, just like the guy who deadlifts 220 can snatch more than the guy who deads 200?
Punch force has very little to do with strength, a small bit to do with mass and nearly everything to do with technique.
Flyweight boxers probably hit harder than heavyweight weightlifters.
i know right, and i believe he's the first dutch guy qualifying for european championship in like 30 years... i hope oly will get more popular here with all this crossfit shit and all
There should be good coverage of the Olympics, but it's in Brazil vs L O N D O N, so who knows if it will be as reliable.
You can just start by watching any old competitions on youtube. It might be tough to stay interested in a random 2 hour video if you're not sure of all the rules and what's going on. There are some great highlight videos, like this battle with Sulemanoglu vs Leonidis
Live competitions are going to be more engaging than random old ones.
You can look at the calendar on the IWF site. Next competition is the Arnold in USA, which will be American lifters + whatever invited international lifters show up. The Arnold was historically a great way to get a closer look at big international lifters, but now that we have good coverage from Hookgrip and whatnot, it's not really a thing anymore.
There's a test event for Rio in April, not sure how significant that will be. And the Euro champs and the Asian champs which should be good because they'll be trying to qualify for Rio. Then there's the African champs in Cameroon, lol. I wonder if they could rig up a ghetto stream, that would be cool to watch.
The Pan-Ams in June will have USA, Canada, and all the actually decent South American countries, like Colombia. Then Junior Worlds which is always good because you get the teenage freaks coming up, and the 19-20 year olds at the top of the Junior category taking their last chance to set Junior World Records.
Then there's Rio which shud b gud, apart from a lot of big stars already being banned for drugs this year. Hope everyone else doesn't all pussy out in the lead up to Rio because of that.
Punches are sharp, explosive movements when performed correctly, and the majority of the force behind a properly executed punch comes from the (wait for it) the HIPS, the one area of a weightlifter's body that is arguably 'over-developed'. A weightlifter also has the proprioceptive knowledge to effectively transfer power generated by the hips to an object held at the end of the arms.
Is Klokov a meme coach?
I watched some seminars of his and he goes on and on about pulling with your elbows "forward" and not leaning back in the second pull.
Then when you watch any of his lifts in slow-mo his elbows are only directly over the bar for a tiny fraction of the lift, and otherwise he is "pulling to his chest", similarily his fully extended position is almost always leant back further than he himself teaches.
For examples : here he is coaching.
and here he is actually doing the snatch
I'm trying to bash Klokov, I am just wondering whether his coaching translates to what he does himself, or is this a case of the "correct" technique not necessarily being the best for an individual lifter.
i wasn't being literal, regardless the pull is only slightly different between any pro lifter regardless of that distinction in training (chinese/russian etc)
my point was more that feelings and cues are often exaggerations to produce a movement and won't be seen during actual lifts, like with klokov per say.
No, not by 'that logic'. Salsa dancers don't shift hundreds of pounds of weight very very fast with their hips. Mutatis mutandis, they are very weak relative to weightlifters. Weightlifters and fighters both train for explosivity. Fighters will be more effective at punching because they specialize in that movement, but weightlifters will be more effective punchers than those untrained in explosive movements.
It is just technique. Drill the same movement over and over again and you will find your "speed". I wouldn't go chasing speed though. To win a competition you do not need to lift the most in the world, you just need to lift more than your weight class at the competition.
The same goes with the bar. You do not need to be under the bar faster than the bar is able to drop down, you need to be just fast enough to catch it in a good position.
sooo, my coach said he wants to put me on the russian cycle because i have pretty decent workload capacity and training 6 days a week would suits me.
he gave me a copy of the program and said i'll have to chose the exercises every day from the list and autoregulate sets and reps between certain ranges. i didnt really understand some parts of the program.
for example, on day 3/week 1 i should do clean, hang clean power clean and front squats , 5/6 sets for 2/6 reps 70/75% of 1rm with low intesity and moderate to high volume, goal is to do a 6x3 with 80% on the clean at the end of week 2.
i tought something like a 6x3 with 70% for clean power clean and hang clean and a 6x5/6 ( pretty much rpe 8/9) with 70% of my frost squats would be good for the first week, but it says moderate to high volume and this looks like a huge amount of work in one session. am i getting it wrong or something?
pic related is program
No that's because you only snippets of the actual seminar
When he went with Ilya they explained that what they are teaching are cues
They said not to copy lifters lifting max since form breaks down
the exercises selection
If you coach someone what you are doing is just trying to make them feel a movement so it corrects whatever fault they have. When they say shit like this in the seminars they hope ppl will feel thisin the lifts and it iwll help them correct their form. Some parts just comes naturally like getting under etc...
so for the first week you wouldn't really need to concern yourself with specific exercises unless you really want to. Looks like you should just do, for that particular day, maybe squats in one session, and cleans in a different session. Just one variation of each so like fsq and hang clean if you want. And then yeah it says 4 exercises for the day so maybe fsq, clean and jerk for those 5-6 sets of 2-6 reps at 70-75%, then a couple other exercises that would be helpful, but probably not do those with that set and rep scheme. Like maybe some ab work and GHRs for 3-5 sets of 8-20. Of course pick stuff you need to work on. So you know, don't go doing a shitload of calf work for no real reason. Or like power cleans if you power clean more than you full clean
I've got back Probs kinda from squatting heavy, low back rounding I guess + getting tipped over a bit. My right spinal erector kinda hurts and when I hyperextend my back and feels weird.
Is my back done? It just feels weird and iffy. Some kinda pain on the bones. It's been 2 days.
Have I broken all my disks off? Hlp
and I'm gonna deadlift today too, although they usually don't bug my back. I hope I'll be okay.
I'm doing presses too and they fuck me up a bit if I don't brace my core right.
Should I just rip my spine out and accept being a vegetable now?
so you would do just clean, hang clean and front squats with those rep schemes and then just do some light accessory work after that? cutting off one exercises wouldnt be that bad actually, power cleans really drains me out.
just rest for a while and make sure you brace your core really tight when you do compunds. my coach has a lumbar hernia and still lifts heavy, you just need to be careful and to have a really strong core
Should I start doing dedicated core work again?
Weighted back Ext. and crunches I think will suffice.
I used to do back Ext. and worked up to holding a 60 lb dumbell at my chest for 5 reps (doing these with locked hips, moving the weight by rounding and unrounding my back)
I would just pick one exercise from each group for each session for those prescribed sets and reps. Then fill in the other exercises it wants you to do with accessory work. I guess I'm just saying don't feel obligated to do that prescribed work for hang cleans if you just did it for clean and jerks and just want to practice more. At least that's the way I see it. You could just do hang cleans for the prescribed work too, but it looks like it calls for goals in specific exercises and also goals for the snatch and clean and jerk. So I would guess that specific exercises refer to stuff like squats, pulls, presses and sn/cj variations.
ok that makes more sense, all that prescribed work would blow me away in less than a week probably.
you should always do some dedicated core exercises, just some situps at the end of the session, it takes 5 minutes and can prevent a lot of pain and injuries
is this a good novice program?
i've been doing oly for quite a while now but my coach overcomplicate things and set all of us on advanced programs, even beginners
Lads I have a problem;
Whenever I do front squats and take the bar out the rack I can't rest it on my delts properly, (clean grip) yet when I do power cleans I can rest it on my delts just fine and even front squat just fine???
Taking it out of a rack fucks me over somehow?
What do you suggest?
Also for whatever reason my T-Spine area (middle back) starting hurting when front squatting?
What could I be doing wrong? Leaning too far forward?
I dont understand why my front squat is so ugly, I can highbar squat deep and keep an almost vertical upper body but my front squats suck.
I assume it's because I can't keep my elbows up. Any cues or advice for this? Anyway ways to practise keeping elbows up?
Make sure your biceps is parallel to the floor
You should practice with a lower weight, exaggerating your elbows to stay up.
It's a part of shoulder mobility, so perhaps partaking in some shoulder mobility movement and exercises would prove beneficial.
Doing some band resistance exercises to lock your elbows in place and try stretching them so that they have to be parallel to the floor, this type of resistance training helps to stretch out tight shoulders.
dudes why am i such a fucking dumbass, i keep overcomplicating my programs while all i need to do is classics squats and pulls.
i cant kill the powerlifter inside my mind who keeps me doing a shitton of pressing and pulling work
Fuck. That. Front Squats from the rack are not that important. If you need to use a non-standard position just to do them comfortably something is very wrong and you're just avoiding the problem.
Sounds like you have a weak back. Go for more reps at a lower weight with a slow, controlled descent, or do pauses. And do more back work. Rows, pull-ups, etc.
If you take a video, though, it will be a little easier to diagnose the problem. Any number of little things could be awry and contributing to the problem.
anon you're so retarded that people can't even tell is this a bait or not pls uninstall internet
should I move up a weight class?
currently i'm at ~59,5kg bodyweight and that's what I weigh if i eat "normally" (without tracking, just eat "clean" foods when i'm hungry) and train hard 3x a week.
for my first (and so far only) competition I cut weight to 57,8kg and made the 58 class, because I didn't want to compete as a very light 63kg.
However, managing that 57,8kg took me 3 weeks of a caloric deficit and one week of almost zero carbs, zero salt and complete dehydration 1 day prior to the meet.
since it was my first competition and i didn't expect to win anyway it was ok, but I know that it's impossible for me to be successful by starving my body the weeks prior to the competition just to make weight in the 58kg class.
should I bulk up to the 63kg class? it's very difficult for me to lose that 1,5kg i need to make the 58kg class, because i'm pretty much at the limit. that's why i think that it would be maybe healthier to move up a class.
or should I try to cut a bit more fat? but if I should cut: when should i do that? right now there are still at least 2 competitions before summer, and I can't start cutting now, otherwise i'd have no energy to train for those competitions.
i'm a noob to all of this, i've been weightlifting for a year now and right now it's the first time i'm competing and i have to actually think about my weight.
London, England’s capital, set on the River Thames, is a 21st-century city with history stretching back to Roman times. At its centre stand the imposing Houses of Parliament, the iconic ‘Big Ben’ clock tower and Westminster Abbey, site of British monarch coronations. Across the Thames, the London Eye observation wheel provides panoramic views of the South Bank cultural complex, and the entire city.
>I didn't want to compete as a very light 63kg.
do you have a chance in medalling at 58 class if you did?
if not then what's the point? you're just making it needlessly hard for yourself
just go compete in whatever bw you normally are for the first few years then when you have a chance at nationals or important meets start deciding which weightclass is more suitable for you
58kg is much easier to cut to for 160cm and below girls. If you have problems cutting 1.5kg for a weight class then a simple solution is to move up. You can go to 63, 69, or 75 if you want. Weightlifting isn't your job, so there's no reason to ardently stick with 58kg
Sorry if its old news but...
South Korea ban Sa Jae-Hyouk for punch on Hwang Woo-Man - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/weightlifting/35225082
Banned by SK fed. Will another country invite him to respresnt them?
yeah, he dislocated his shoulder.
What a pussy ass SHW lifter man.
>Hwang, 21, has been hospitalized with an injury to his cheekbone
>He has alleged that Sa hit him...and that he will require up to six weeks to heal.
>Hwang also appears unlikely to compete in Rio as he will miss substantial training time with his injury.
are you fucking kidding me?
This dude is 130+kg and gets hit by an 85kg lifter and now says he'll miss so much training that he won't be able to compete in the OLYMPICS?
DUDE COME ON. Like shit man I didn't know how crucial your fucking cheekbone was to weightlifting until today. Grubbing for that lawsuit money like a scumbag. This sentence is also somewhat revealing:
>Sa testified that he met Hwang to clear up some misunderstanding over an incident last February, in which Sa slapped the younger lifter in the face, and that he became outraged while talking with Hwang
>Hwang said Sa didn't show any intention to clear the air between them. According to Hwang, Sa was angry that Hwang had been telling others about their February incident and told the younger lifter that he was being ungrateful for what senior teammates had done for him.
So what I'm getting out of this is that this Hwang is probably an ungrateful little faggot who ran his mouth too much and got his ass handed to him. Now he's being a little bitch and called the cops. Pic related is his debilitating injury that will keep him out of rio.
BY THE WAY, Sa probably out clean and jerks this joker on the reg. Dude did 207 at junior worlds.
my bad, I forgot to post the DEBILITATING facial injury
>yeah, he dislocated his shoulder.
no you're just as retarded as the one who wrote that article
>Hwang also appears unlikely to compete in Rio as he will miss substantial training time with his injury.
that was just something written by the retarded dude
read the posts made by pent on this thread on why he got "beat" up by sa, you dont seem to realize that asian countries value seniority a lot
my bad, meant to say elbow lol. Give a guy a break.
>read the posts made by pent on this thread on why he got "beat" up by sa, you dont seem to realize that asian countries value seniority a lot
I'm not sure where you're coming from there. I went back and read the posts. Sounds like this young kid was disrespectful and got put in his place by his senior, and now he's crying about it like a baby.
Strongly disagree, competitions serve to focus your training and help motivation to improve faster. You will reach "good" numbers faster if you compete, and you won't be a confused pleb when you go to your first national meet.
This made me sad :(
No, they like elbows up ideally, but the intention of the lifter and what you can actually see are different, especially when the weights get big.
>We always discuss the concept of closeness when teaching athletes 1-1 and in previous and upcoming 2015 Chinese weightlifting technique seminars in order to exert upward force through the catch. To do this one must pull the elbows upward as demonstrated by Liao Hui during his tour with us in December. Many lifters pull the elbows back too early which ultimately limits how close and how high one pulls the bar.
Today's Log. Help me plan tomorrow's workout.
p.s. SNDL is based on max sn
coming back to a consistent schedule now after the holidays, which is why i'm keeping light.
oh, yeah, and i did 30sec x 2 of planks with 20kg, each side (left/right oblique and regular plank)
for tomorrow i'm thinking of
>Clean and Jerk
what do you think /owg/?
man i'm fucking up, sorry.
>Clean and Jerk
>when people talk to you about "Olympic lifting"
I'm interested in both strength and explosiveness, but as a poor fag, I just have a standard 300 CAP crap weight set.
I've been using hang cleans as an accessory, is there any other "low skill" oly lifts I should be doing and can be done with iron plates?
It's not about "low skill" retard
It's about safety if you have a bar that don't spin or barely spins it can lock up before you rack it and crash on you in a weird angle breaking your wrists and yourself
Guys I was getting some back pain yesterday and I stretched my hip flexors and that seemed to really aleviate it. It's pretty much 100% gone today I think.
Is it possible my quads are too stronk for my hamstrings and that's messing me up, or do I just have tight hip flexors and I've gotta stretch? I don't really appear of have anterior pelvic tilt, and I honestly dont think I do, so Im kind of unsure.
I do deadlifts and I mostly do back squats to full depth and sometimes do RDLs after squats. So I don't see my posterior chain not getting enough work.
Nah, likely not. But bracing properly on what? Squats?
I do know I have to get better at bracing, and I do get some lower back rounding at times since I don't stay tight enough/brace properly.
ill be there FUCKER
prepare t get BTFO
>pic related is u when im done wit ya
If you had a bulging or fucked disc you wouldn't be able to move without screaming. Do a lot of standing pikes and hip stretches, squat like you mean it from now on and you'll be okay.
This isn't true, each injury is particular, and not all slipped or bulging discs press on the surrounding nerves in such a way as to produce intense pain. You do need to be careful and brace properly, but if you aren't experiencing debilitating pain and there is little risk of exacerbating the injury then there's no reason not to keep training. Ilya has/had a bulging disc and he seems to be managing pretty well.
Go to the physio, see what's up, then proceed as best fits your condition.
You're supposed to extend aggressively to transfer force to the bar and elevate it. When I see people trying to 'jump start' a clean they are usually just hopping a little bit then pulling the bar up to their shoulders with their arms. No force from the hips whatsoever, which is completely wrong.
So no, don't jump. Extend.
hey guys i have a question for you
why? why do olympic weightlifting? its a very difficult movement to master, it doesnt make you look more aesthetic, and you're not going to get significantly better jumps or be more athletic or whatever.
im someone who did this for 5 years before quitting and moving on to more important stuff in life. eg. my gf.
>what is having a hobby
>what is enjoying something
Nah mate totally right let's only do things that makes us look good and then go through the motions with some slut, let's not do literally anything else we might enjoy
>I stopped lifting for a girl
So you're using your gf as a reason to not work out when you literally could have both. Kill yourself because you're not going to make it with that attitude.
>fall backwards on my first clean of the day
>pretty good sesh regardless
>lots of good jerk work
what happens when my bitch legs fail out from under a squat clean? do i try to push the weight forward or what? rn i just let it roll over me which feels bitchmade as fuck
It means you're a cookie cutter porno addict that lives their life based on what other people say or do instead of doing what they want.
It's fine you're a cookie cutter, just don't think you can brainwash me fucking porno addict now go back to doing curls and getting a gf
he's not even autistic, just wrong. If you step onto a national competition platform with zero experience, you are likely to bomb.
Also that stupid rationalization could be applied to anything really.

You might not know how to time your warmup attempts properly, you might not know how to pick your attempts, you might not hold the bar overhead long enough to get the down signal, etc.
And those are just technical problems, there's also just the issue of getting intimidated when you're up on the stage.

If you could webm me up it'd be cool.
Sorry for the shit angle of the shit lift. 52kg FYI. Any tips? Am I not pulling myself down far enough? I feel like I'd prefer my squat stance to be closer, how do?
Mattie was actually a gymnast though
Clarry was just a "trickster" a "street gymnast".
Basically the skill difference between Ilya and that fat 40 y/o ex-high school football player who does 60kg power cleans with horrible form
Mattie is clearly superior here
I'd take being able to do like 5 consecutive back flips, clean and jerking 220kg and snatching 185kg over anything that Mattie can do. Clarence hits world class numbers, Mattie is far from it.
