    Yes, I should have bolded the “biased” part of that sentence. I do have a theory that people can eat less meat if they are incorporating organs into their diet due to it being nutritionally denser...

    Blair already pointed it out but it is not a movie that objectively is looking at veganism and performance. I skimmed it and it is just full of bias and half truths. I would go as far to say that the...

    SKINS used to sell great shorts until they went under. Have had all my pairs for years with only a small rip on the thighs.

    It is going to be interesting what China does. If I recall, in the past they used the Spring Nationals as their final qualifier to pick their Olympic team and then send their second and third place...

    Aren’t the IWF running a world championships the same year as the Olympics because of the reduced quota and having to remove a few categories? Why do I feel like that was something discussed.

    Rostami's coaches declared 179 after Rivas was slated to go. Rivas was on his second and by the rules, Rostami could not decrease to 179. Changing to 179 caused a big technical error/stop to occur...

    When CJ began to squat under the barbell, instead of dropping his hips down/back like he normally does they went in front of the barbell.

    CJ didn’t jump back on his cleans. His hips actually slid forward under them and that’s why he failed them.

    Ah! That's right, Lu Yong's uncle was one of those lifters. It is definitely a short list, but in my opinion these triple bodyweight jerks are some of the most impressive lifts ever.

    Did some counting:

    Om has CJ'd triple bodyweight 7 times in his career to my knowledge.

    Naim 10 times although I cannot find evidence of 172 and 173 at 56, so I think the number is closer to...

    Ma lied to Lü, Liao, and Yu Jie saying he was going to take them on vacation in the US and show them NYC. Instead he plopped them down in a seminar in Brooklyn unbeknownst to them.

    The cuts are pretty hard. Some of my lifters were running on fumes in the final weeks of the cuts and performance often tanked. These lifters were working with personal coaches and not just following...

    I tend to stick with the ranges outlined with Prilepin's since that is for absolute percentages. There are still days where I bring the absolute intensity up for the heavier guys but I try to make...

    Not even that, most foreign coaches assume we have a training system that takes kids and moves them through 8000 reps the first year, then 10000, then 12000, then 16000, and finally 20000 reps per...

    I haven’t noticed it being different with high or low level lifters.

    Macca, relative intensity works the same way for classic as it does strength lifts in my experience. I think the Germans use...

    That’s another thing to keep in mind: heavier lifters can not sustain the same workload as lighter lifters. I find no matter what, athletes above 90kg need to reduce volume/intensity/frequency...

    It's normal to begin to feel run down after 2-3 weeks of intensive training. It is often recommended every third or fourth week of training to treat as a deload in intensity/volume/both. Everyone...

    Yes, I was referring to the quality of Ilya’s lifting.

    Ilya didn’t lift much more in training when he was lifting at 94 versus 105. I think he said he would weigh 102-105 in training prior to...
