    I would imagine that, like the Olympics, the host usually loses money on the event.

    Don't get me started on Broz. He appeals/(ed?) to the worst "macho" instincts of the WL community.

    I've heard something similar. Apparently she would want to do more volume or lift heavier than the programming called for. Carmargo would try to convince her to train a bit smarter and hold back a...

    Is there any clear reason why WADA is so focused on Russia recently?

    It's partly individual differences, and partly an adjustment thing. Most lifters who went to the OTC were used to training 3-5 times a week. I've heard that the head coaches just threw a ton of...

    In a succinct way, Louie Simmons has done a lot to advance PL programming. A lot of the major programs today (5/3/1 being the most notable, but a few others, too) are indebted to Louie's ideas like...

    It's comedic. If you look at the flairs screeching at the top of their lungs, they're largely competing in untested federations (SPF/RPS/etc.). I also don't completely agree with Tony on Louie...

    The North Koreans have consistently excellent technique. Om Yun Chol, in particular, is one of my favorite lifters to watch.

    Which W. European lifters do you like? Personally, I thought Steiner...

    Frank Mantek had a thumbless jerk as well.

    As to the OP, Charniga had a related article about the diminishing return of BW gains a few months ago.

    Most of the SHWs have awful jerks. Salimi...

    I feel like Judas, discussing how flexible I am (not that big or jacked, though). Anyway, I'm in the very small group that was able to take up WL without any sort of mobility work. That came from a...

    It makes sense if you think of his population. Rule 1 for training athletes is "don't hurt them in the weight room." Everything else is a secondary concern.

    No, Camargo has said on the WLHouse podcast that she had to drink a gallon of water to fit into the 71 kg class, which is absurd. I have no strong feelings about either, but Rogers seems like she...

    No, as they've had some positives over the last ten years. I think the Chinese use drugs to augment training, rather than drive training. As I phrased it on Reddit, they use, but they're not...

    Wrestling, as a sport, did not cooperate with the IOC at all. The IWF is at least pretending to reform.

    I don't think they care about having a strength sport. The IOC would love to replace WL with yet another gymnastics or water-related event.

    It is nice to see him coming back, especially after a major health problem. He's definitely not going to win much in the way of national medals (or have an Olympics slot), but I'd hope he talks about...

    You can make a strong argument that many of these rules (e.g. don't step on the bar) date from a time where access to quality equipment was far more limited. If memory serves, in the mid-1950s,...

    I know Mendes failed tests (and bombed out) for the US and Brazil, but three seems like a record.

    That could also have to do with training. Based on the videos some of the Iranian lifters post, it looks like, at the national level at least, they have a pretty limited exercise selection.

    Agreed, that's no doubt one of the major reasons why current anti-doping technologies focus so heavily on finding evidence of them.

    There are doping positives for guys who SN 50 kilos in competition, so "beating proven dopers" means very little.

    Yes, but it's telling that the same drugs have been in use for so long in E. Europe. What it suggests is that research hasn't really evolved beyond what the Soviets did.

    I know you're lampooning 95% of the "fans" out there.

    E. European pharmacology really hasn't come very far in 50 years, if these positives are any indicator.
