I was wondering if anyone else enjoyed Jays new article as much as I did. I think there were some great points made. Jay and I attended the certification class together and one thing that kept coming up in discusion was the catching and controlling of the weight, the deceleration of the weight. We were put through the paces by Coach Stockell and if you have never performed the o lifts yourself, I highly recomend the club coach certification course. Even if you have been performing and/ or teaching them for years, you can learn so much from this course. I thought Travis made a good point in his article as well. I know organization is a problem for some. I also hear from people from time to time who are two, three weeks into a program and they are not seeing the results they were hoping for, so they are ready to scrap it and move on to something else. I am probably guilty of expecting too much immediate gratification at times and I have to remind myself that it doesn't happen over night for me or my kids.

Even with all the research to back up Olympic lifting there is another reason I enjoy them- the kids are active and gettin' after it. I can tell the energy level is amped up. You can't be lazy and do cleans. Don't get me wrong- the evidence is there for sports and athleticism, but I like them because of the amount of effort needed to perform them. I think Ken Mannie at Michigan State isn't big into Olympic lifting. He does a lot of HIT. That would be a good topic or article for the future. Does anybody else not like Olympic lifting and why?

Good point Zach I think Coach Livingstone also mentioned in his interview how the kids loved the violent movements. We did the pressing snatch balance last week, most of the kids used a piece of pvc and they were into it. They were asking all kinds of questions and really putting forth some great effort

Speaking of HIT. I can't believe anybody would even think to use it exclusively anymore. It has value short term for muscle gains and some strength, but you cannot use it exclusively for extreme increases in strength and explosiveness. cheers
