    Li Dayin is looking out of shape coming back from injury. And I can't say I am particularly surprised by either of those statements.

    Liu Huanhua seems to have quite some talent. Would be excited...

    67 recap
    Grandpa won because everyone else lifted less and also missed a lot

    Agreed, 61 is not a particularly stacked field compared to what 62 was.
    I guess the removal of the 55/56 category from the Olympics forced that - most lifters moved up a category. The 62 field...

    Five DNFs. To finish first, you must first finish.

    Impressive snatching from Jia Xionghui, who has improved a lot with his new bodyweight. Less impressive in the clean and jerks and...

    I've no insider info on Wangli herself, but I can say fairly confidently that is a likely scenario. I'm sad that although she's hit new weights, she hasn't (IMO) really improved since she hit 150 at...

    yeah 29 year old boomers

    Peng Cuiting really up there in the snatch. Bizarre to see someone snatch to that level (and with that style more particularly) whilst barely being able to stand up...

    With the way she was limping, most likely a hamstring injury from the first clean. Squat Jerk Journalist says that she thinks it's a hamstring injury too. I'd suspected hamstring in the 2nd attempt...

    Awful. I hope it's not related to weightlifting, but with the way these systems go it may well be.

    Oh right , I didn't even notice her (Long Xue) age.

    Liao Qiuyun needing rest is something I agree with. Or more appropriately, needing appropriate help and time to deal with her knee injury,...

    Ah yes. The real Olympics.
    49s were fun. Got to watch Hou Zhihui and Jiang Huihua battle it out and push each other - a bit disappointed that Jiang missed her 3rd attempt on 120 for a 1kg...

    I don't personally know Ivan Grikurov or Asandize and don't know anyone who knows them either, so I don't know why they do that or their technical model. To be clear, pulls as mentioned before do not...

    It's taught intentionally China and Vietnam, you can see it on instagram. I think Dan Bell taught it intentionally with his shifting drills, and speculated (correctly) that the Chinese taught it...

    I've edited my previous comment with more details.

    To make it clear what I am looking at, look as the barbell passes the knee for two things - the torso angle opening up to vertical, and the...

    I can't speak for Brian/Serhiy/Pflugfelder rotating between pulls and deadlifts, though I should note that they more or less do the same job of just strengthening the pulling musculature, especially...

    Clean and jerk is a combination exercise lol

    As Brian said earlier, snatch and clean and jerk is the priority because that is what you do in competition. Weightlifting is a sport and should be...

    I won't answer on Brian's behalf, but you can find a thread on his training here which was an offshoot of the thread on Prilepin's chart thread. I think you will find the answers to most of your...

    Is there a schedule? I tried looking on the site but I don't know if it's unavailable at present or if I'm stupid. I'm using Google Translate to English so that may affect it.
