Présentation de l'éditeur

Olympic Weightlifting is a comprehensive guide to learning and instructing the Olympic and related lifts. Includes sections on teaching progressions, lift analyses, error correction, programming, competition, supplemental exercises, warm-up protocols, nutrition, and sample training programs. "Simply the best book available on Olympic weightlifting." Don Weideman, Vice President, Pacific Weightlifting Association "Without a doubt the best book on the market today about Olympic-style weightlifting." Mike Burgener, USA Weightlifting senior international coach "Outstanding, Accurate, and Concise! A must read for athletes and coaches involved in the movements." Daniel Camargo, USA Weightlifting International Coach; President, Florida Weightlifting Federation. "Everett's Olympic Weightlifting text is one of the best instructional books for the sport to be published in years. This is a must have for every weightlifting/strength and conditioning coach's library shelf." Bob Takano, Member USA Weightlifting Hall of Fame "I highly recommend the book. I would strongly argue that this book belongs on the shelf between Pavel's Power to the People and Tommy Kono's Weightlifting: Olympic Style as the three books that will lead you to the next level. Dan John "This is the book I would recommend to anyone wanting to begin the sport of Weightlifting. Greg took material that has been discussed for decades by many many great coaches and authors and managed to present it with a clarity that has rarely, if ever, been achieved. I don t care how many years you have coached, or how many lifters you have coached, no one is going to read this book without coming across a few passages that make a light-bulb go off in his head. Greg has a way of taking material that has been argued and discussed to death, and presenting it in such a clear way that it makes you wonder why anything else ever had to be written or said." Glenn Pendlay "Everett s strengths are his attention to detail and intelligent, accessible progressions. You will love this book, and it will never end up at the used bookstore." Robb Wolf, NorCal Strength & Conditioning

TWO HOOKGRIPS UP!! 7 février 2011
Par NorwichGrad - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
My interest in Olympic Weightlifting began at the old age of 38 when I read Rippetoe's Starting Strength. I started doing power cleans using Rippetoe's `Triple Extension' methodology. Basically, I power cleaned by literally jumping, shrugging and catching the bar, per Rippetoe's instructions.

I purchased Everett's book as my interest in the sport grew. My hybrid training protocol eventually morphed into full-time weightlifting. I dropped all traditional bodybuilding isolation exercises, including the `RULER' of all exercises in every gym across America - the bench press. (I hope you sensed a little sarcasm in the last statement.)

Rippetoe is a great STRENGTH coach; but he is NOT an Olympic Weightlifting coach. I had to unlearn the bad habit of `triple extension' when I started training the Everett way. I learned that there is no jumping in weightlifting. I also learned that one does not need to actively shrug the bar to elevate it as high as possible. Everett is one heck of a writer, and he does an excellent job explaining in great detail how to gracefully accelerate huge amounts of weights overhead and successfully get under the bar with finesse.

The only thing better than this book is the DVD. (And the only thing better than this book and the DVD combined is a qualified Olympic Weightlifting coach.) My coach is a competitive weightlifter and his training principles and methodologies are more or less in line with Everett's book.

Olympic Weightlifting is poetry in motion. Although the Olympic lifts are natural movements, they are extremely technical. And because the lifts are explosive by nature, it is difficult to learn them in slow motion. This book is a great reference for aspiring weightlifters. It is also a great manual for coaches and trainers. If you have no access to a qualified coach, this book is a must.

PS. Think twice before you try to learn from self-proclaimed weightlifting coaches on youtube. If you want to remove all doubt and learn the lifts safely, correctly and quickly, just buy this book!

OL summary 24 octobre 2008
Par pc6 - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I picked this book up since I collect weight training
books. Most books about competitive weightlifting tend
to be repetitive of one another and this one is no
different. The approach and intent of the book is
reminiscent of Bill Starr's "Defying Gravity", the
teaching methodology seems directly derivative of Mike
Burgener's, the programming sections appear to be
modified from the writings of Lyn Jones, Artie
Dreschler, and the old Soviet training manuals. Some
of the technical analyses suffer from Mr. Everett's
lack of experience in weightlifting, in coaching
lifters, and seemingly in applied anatomy as
occasionally what is presented in the text doesn't
jive with basic physics and physiology. So the content
appears to be a re-hash of other authors' works and
represents an incomplete understanding of science
related to lifting.

The book does have its strengths. A novice coach or
lifter can learn to function in the gym and in a low
level competition from reading and applying the
materials in the book. It may actually be better at
accomplishing this end than the USA Weightlifting
coaching manuals. But lifting coaches know that that
is not a large achievement. And this observation
provides a fairly sad commentary on weightlifting
coaching resources in the USA - a new lifter and coach
with 3-4 years of experience has produced an average
quality compilation text that is better that the
teaching manual used by the national governing
organization for the actual sport.

If you are a lifting geek like me, the book is a nice
addition to the bookshelf. If you are absolutely new
to the sport, either as an athlete or coach, and if
there are no experienced coaches near you, this book
will be helpful. If you are looking for new
information or an authoritative work by an expert, its
not here.

Comprehensive text 3 février 2011
Par Seek Felicity - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this book based on the great reviews and a general interest in adding basic olympic lifts to my training. I didn't have aspirations of being a competitive weightlifter, but wanted to perform some power cleans and power overhead movements with a modicum of looking like I know what I am doing.

There is a dearth of information on olympic lifting on the internet, much of it conflicting, so I felt a book was the only choice to get what I needed. And what I got was more than I expected. I am well read on strength and conditioning, but never before have I seen a lifting text both so technically thorough and easy to digest. The closest thing I can compare it to is Mark Rippetoe's excellent Starting Strength. In particular, I was blown away by the most thorough explanation of the mechanics of olympic style back and front squatting that I have ever seen. Many weightlifting coaches gloss over the squat choosing to expound upon the quick lifts, and most of the thorough writings on the squat concern the low bar and powerlifting oriented versions. But here Everett covers every facet of stance, body position, bar position, method of execution, and correction of form for the high bar squat imaginable before even mentioning a clean or snatch. And when he does get to the Olympic lifts, the real meat of the book, he presents them in a detailed format of progressing from simple bar drills to performing the full lifts themselves in such a manner that even an individual with just a video camera can acquire good technique.

Flexibility, nutrition, assistance exercises, and programming are covered later in the book. While they could be mere afterthoughts to the information presented on the lifts, Everett gave them enough attention to warrant a read from a lifter of any level. This book is a bargain and must have for anyone remotely interested in Olympic lifting, even if it's just doing some power cleans as a training adjunct.

strictly for beginners 23 janvier 2009
Par weightlifting student - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this book, because it was recommended by coach Mike B. and few others as a book for lifters of any level and coaches.

This book is strictly for beginners - I am a little bit dissapointed, because I knew 90% of the content of this book. The title and description of the book are quite misleading. It should clearly say "for beginners only." Or (just like another book) - say "explosive lifting for sports."

If you are a true beginner - I would give this book 4 stars, because the teaching of the lifts is presented very well.

296 pages, but a lot of white spaces - could have been compressed to 200 pages - not impressive for $35.

Good chapter on correcting most common mistakes, although I would disagree on some adivice there.

Better books on weightlifting were written by Mr. Tommy Kono, Mohamed El-Hewie, and Arthur Drechsler - you get much more for your money.

There is no information who the author is (background, coaching experience), and what are the sources of his information.

Edit: Little background information: I am a recent immigrant from an Eastern European country, and my weightlifting experiences are different than those of my American friends. If $35 is nothing for you, then please buy the book, it is not bad. I just do not understand how this book could be helpful to a coach, for example there are practically no information on designing preparatory, special, competition, de-training and transition macrocycles with microcycles within the yearly calendar. The coach already should know basics about the lifts, how to use hook grip, etc. or he should not call himself a coach?

One of the best books written about Olympic lifting 5 juin 2013
Par Jesse Lindenstein - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Greg Everett does a fantastic job breaking down movements to make Oly lifting simple to understand. With all the "Crossfit experts" out in the world it's easy to get misguided and caught up in the bs. Thank you for making a book like this. There is some hope for society.
