Meanwhile in Germany … Yesterday I drove down to Plauen to meet Rebeka Koha and Ritvars Suharevs for their first German bundesliga weightlifting competition. If you have never met them, let me tell you they are both very friendly and easy to talk to, which makes filming them super easy. Same goes for their coach Eduards Andruskevics. […]
Meanwhile in Ireland Clarence Kennedy made a really good about his plant based diet. He includes a bunch of meal examples and breaks down the macro as well as micronutrients in them. Even if you don’t plan to make a switch to a vegan diet this is interesting to watch. Mixed with the lifting footage […]

The Juggernaut Crew has a good video back vs. leg dominance in the squat. They go over: weak back / strong legs strong back / weak legs (good morning squats) and give suggestions as to how to balance disparities.
From the 2015 Worlds Training Hall … Then 17 year old Sara Ahmed (69kg) working up to 110kg Power Clean & Jerks. In Rio she went 112kg + 143kg for bronze! More: Sara Squatting 200kg!
From the 2015 Worlds … Lu Xiaojun bombing out with 201kg Squat Jerks. Usually I wouldn’t make a bomb out video for most other lifters, but Lu is an exception. Even just his Cleans are beautiful to watch. This has to be the perfect receiving position. Plus, it’s interesting to see how he failed each attempt. […]

In 2014 Larry (from Larry’s Chinese Weightlifting Experience) filmed a training session of now Olympic champion Long Qingquan (56kg). He is working up to what looks like 130kg in the snatch and 165kg in the Clean & Jerk. More: Watch Long go 137+170 in Rio. He also uploaded Liu Hao (94kg) squatting 280kg x5.
