Use Proper Technique in the Olympic Lifts For Rapid Results
It has been said:
If your technique is right, the weight will be light.
If your technique is wrong, you better be strong.
Which lifter are you?
A Weightlifter's Perspective...
"I am a weight lifter. I like weight lifting and weight lifters. Training with and the lifting of weights, which to me was at first a pleasurable form of exercise, an outlet for the competitive instinct all real men* possess, a means of keeping fit in the shortest possible time, has become my life's work." Bob Hoffman
* (women didn't weight lift then)
This quote applies to more people today than ever before, I wonder what Bob Hoffman would think about today's weight lifting and weight lifters?

Who are Champions?
“Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision.” Muhammad Ali
Hard Work, Dedication, Desire
Hard Work is required to become an Olympic champion. Not everyone can make it to the top.
“A champion is someone who gets up, even when he can't." ~ Jack Dempsey
Dedication “In order to excel, you must be completely dedicated to your chosen sport. You must also be prepared to work hard and be willing to accept destructive criticism. Without 100 percent dedication, you won't be able to do this." ~ Willie Mays
“The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me." ~ Ayn Rand
Desire is an inner hunger that never seems satisfied. A belief that you are the chosen one. A want, a need, an urge that must, at any cost, be fulfilled!
“If you greatly desire something, have the guts to stake everything on obtaining it." ~ Brendan Francis
