Book Description

25 Sep 2009
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

5.0 out of 5 stars A great guide. 23 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just started learning the olympic lifts and this looked like a good place to start.Full of useful information,supplementary exercises and lots of photos.Although not quite on par with the weightlifting encyclopedia by Arthur Drechsler, it is still a worthy addition to the collection.Also has a very useful website.

This book is everything I needed when I bought it! I can not recommend it enough to people that want to learn the olympic lifts, and most of all, the why behind certain movements and thinking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value 15 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the best book on the subject. Others cross the same ground but mr Everett has the knack of answering questions as you think of them.
The text flows and is intuitive, addressing the pit falls of techniques essential to mastering the Snatch, the clean and the jerk as well as all variations of each.
So cross fitter, bodybuilder who wants dynamic compound moves or conventional weightlifter - this is in my opinion the best book to buy, especially at first.
Rippetoe's "starting strength" is excellent for the power side of the equation.
