Olympic Lifting for Beginners DVD

In part three of the four DVDs from the Utah workshop weekend, we get a taste of Dan John's instruction for beginning Olympic weightlifting. Our original idea was this would be primarily for adults who've never lifted Olympic-style, and it's certainly that, however one of the attendees is a competitive Olympic lifting, who told me a couple of Dan's tips changed her lifting forever. So I'm thinking anyone interested in Olympic lifting will get something out of this one.
As I did last time for the kettlebell dvd and the time prior for the strength lecture, I pulled a couple of clips from the dvd to give you a taste of what went on during our time with Dan. First, let's look at his take on pulling through the heels.
In this 80-minute DVD, Dan taught:
- Olympic lifting overview
- Snatch positions
- Push jerk
- Split jerk
- The Jerk
- Overhead squat
- Goblet squat
- Shoulder mobility
- Putting weights overhead
- Hamstring lengthening
- Romanian deadlift stretch
- Wrist flexibility
Now here's one of value to everyone, even those without interest specifically in Olympic lifting: How to get wrist flexibility.
Having been at the event and as an adult with absolutely no Olympic lifting experience, I can tell you I left feeling fairly confident in my ability to snatch and jerk... a short piece of PVC pipe.
Seriously, it left me and the rest of the attendees with plenty of enthusiasm for learning the O lifts, and enough technique tips to give us a start on our own at home. I think it will do the same for you. ~LareeIf you'd like to order the other three dvds, click here to order for the discounted 4-DVD set.
