    1. You need to know what the goal for the session is. So while you could do 5 triples at 80% or 15 singles at 80%, the goal of each session will be different. 5 triples will be about volume...

    That performance from Harrison was outstanding. A Youth World record, and 2 bronze medals at a SENIOR world championships on home turf is incredible. One to look out for if he stays healthy.

    I can just about clean pull my front squat. In my experience, clean pulls above 100% aren't that useful.

    If you've met him, you would know he's nothing like his social media persona. One of the nicest and most genuine people I've met. I'm sure Jon North in person is quite different from the Jon we see...

    During that 7 week period, averaging about 6 sessions/week, I squatted 5x5 at low to moderate intensity every session for the first 4 weeks, then upped the intensity during the last 3 weeks. My last...

    After I got back from Nepal at the end of July from a trip for hookgrip for the Asian Youth/Junior championships, I had lost a lot of bodyweight and a lot of strength. So I decided to try out high...

    When you lose that feeling of stability, is it through the feet or through the bar? If it's through the feet, you probably need to be more aggressive with repositioning them. If it's through the bar,...

    Kitts didn't enter as he was focussing on preparing for Pan Ams. Wilson was still coming back from injury I believe too.

    I think they will follow the qualification system that's been implemented for the Commonwealth Games next year. Individual qualification based, 1 lifter per weight class per country. Only difference...

    When I use the cue "jump", I'm referring to the action of jumping (explosively extending the legs, hips, and ankles upwards), not actually jumping off the floor. The feet will come off the floor,...

    That first line annoys me too. American records had no relevance to the selection process for the Olympic games. Her performance at the trials would have placed her 9th in 58. King placed 6th with...

    I find more sessions work better for me, and I spread the volume and loading out to suit that. So I might do more overall volume, and lower the intensity slightly to suit that.

    The reason you don't see many Bulgarians doing pulls is because the number of high intensity snatches and cleans they do mitigate the need to do pulls.

    My personal opinion: pulls are of more...

    The training hall at European Youths in Kosovo had NXG bars. Knurling was more consistent, and spin was smooth, albeit not very fast. How it should be.

    Indeed. Strength and technique go hand in hand, shouldn't be one or the other. I was particularly guilty of focusing on technique for extended periods, which did help for sure. But I then reached a...
