    I've read a couple of times now that Ivan Abadjiev wouldn't let his lifters take NSAIDs. It's also suggested that NSAIDs "blunt" growth hormone production (whatever that means exactly) and is a...

    As much as I hate to admit it, I think this is true. I find it interesting when my wife and I walk into a women's section of a major department store and see a 4' advertisement with a photo of a...

    I know it. It was a half-joke, but who knows what they'll come up with. Maybe it will be subtle tweaks. However, I bet when they announced they were dropping the clean and press, people s**t. I'm...

    True, but I've seen where you can focus on heavy snatch more regularly (with around double-triple the volume as the clean and jerk), then supplemented with things like heavy power clean and push...

    If you are talking back in the 50's and early 60's, yeah, that was my understanding too, that the snatch was considered a bulls**t lift that they had to do to compete. Even when you hear Coach...

    This is going to sound like it's coming out of left field, but it's crossed my mind and is related (to what degree, I do not know). By eliminating the B group and reducing the overall number of...

    I hear you and agree. "more innovative" can mean a whole lot of different things.

    They could even measure things, like velocity, acceleration, force, work, etc and factor those metrics, along...

    I was waiting for them to shuffle the weight classes again. That seems to be their way of nullifying previous records and starting with a "clean slate". It doesn't address the underlining issues, imo.

    I agree.

    IMO, the feet leaving the ground is a by-product of being explosive. Jumping up in the air shouldn't be purposely trained.
