Review

Simply the best book available on Olympic weightlifting. --Don Weideman, Vice President - Pacific Weightlifting Association

Without a doubt the best book on the market today about Olympic-style weightlifting. --Mike Burgener, USA Weightlifting senior international coach

I have purchased dozens of books over the past fifteen years on topics ranging from martial arts to elements of gymnastics and weightlifting. Most contain some useful information; however, few make the yearly cut when I weed through my bookshelf to make room for new material. Why? I can''t look back at these books, year after year and find something new every time I open the page. This is not the case with Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes & Coaches. Everett s book is unique in that it is concise, yet thorough. Anyone from a raw beginner to the elite level competitor will find something new in this book every time they open its pages. Everett s strengths are his attention to detail and intelligent, accessible progressions. You will love this book, and it will never end up at the used bookstore. --Robb Wolf, NorCal Strength & Conditioning

There is a lot of great stuff in this book. It helped take me to the "advanced" level on my lifts for sure. One thing I found was doing was flipping back and forth. I found that there seems to be a slight lack in cohesiveness. This could be due to the fact that much of the stuff I was reading was brand new and understanding of the concepts presented was limited.

That said...
This book is suited for novice and advanced lifters a like. For a novice however, you should read it, execute the concepts, then read it again.

I bought this book on Olympic weightlifting for my brother, who is interested in weightlifting as an athlete. I had heard good things about this book, and I picked up the second edition when I saw it on Amazon. One great thing about this book is its size. It is big! It is large, with a good amount of photographs and readable instructions on each page. I appreciated this size, and I’d love for more exercise books to come in such a large size. The book begins with a section on Foundations. I love it when books contain this information, and this book has a very strong and effective foundation section. The book continues with a section dedicated to different types of Olympic weight lifting, such as the snatch, the jerk, and so on. The book even has a chapter on error correction, which I think is so helpful. The book also contains section on programming and training as well as supplemental exercises and flexibility. The book also provides information on competition, which I know my brother will appreciate. I really enjoyed this book, and my brother did too. I would definitely recommend this book!

This book is no joke. Not only is it heavy duty, it''s packed with information.
I started this book like I would any textbook. Greg Everett does a great job of outlining everything that is entailed in Olympic weightlifting, from the equipment that is used, gear to wear like sleeves, wraps and weightlifting SHOES (i had no idea), ways to tape and chalk up, and safety straps and belts.
What I really like about Everett''s guide are the sections on technique and development. There are plenty of options to read up on, depending skill level and training desires of the lifter. There is weight gain, classic lift and a Bulgarian program as examples.

I''m not gonna lie, the idea of weightlifting is a tad intimidating . However, using this book properly, much information is given that is eases my anxiety a bit. Everett provides a whole sections on how to correct lifts. There are so many pictures of proper technique so one can identify what would constitute a proper lift and what wouldn''t .

The education continues on through the nutrition section where weight and supplements are covered. Everett even goes on to cover the training one must take in order to begin competition. Like I said, this book is packed with information. I never like going into situations unprepared, especially ones where there is a potential for injury, but I feel that Everett really created a guide to help coach a weightlifter to were they would like to be.

With this book Everett has done a great job of compiling essential information for the beginning weightlifter, coach, or both. "Olympic Weightlifting" contains all the information one needs to begin their career as coach or lifter but advanced lifters or experts should look elsewhere for new groundbreaking details. The book begins with sections talking about the foundations of lifting and the common positions. Each lift has pictures of what you should be doing and how to do it. It''s a fairly large book and each different concept is explained in great detail. Everett makes sure to mention error correction and how to fix your form to avoid injury and improve awesomeness. Everett then goes on to talk about how to train, program, and schedule your weightlifting. He even includes sample programs if you need somewhere to start before creating a customized program for yourself. The author even goes so far as to cover flexibility / stretching for weightlifters which is an important, but often ignored, topic. The book ends with a short section on competing (for the serious athlete) and has helpful information on how to lose (or gain) weight for a weigh-in. Good resource for lovers of lifting.

I got the book and the DVD and would highly recommend getting both. The book has descriptions, longer commentary and stop photos that are not on the DVD. The DVD is excellent in showing and describing the lifts - breaking them down. But the book goes a little deeper. I have been watching the video and then going back to the book to look at the pictures and reread the descriptions. There is a lot of overlap for sure. If you can only get one, it would depend on your learning style. If you are a visual learner, get the DVD. If you learn from reading, get the book.
If you are interested in getting better at your Olympic lifts or trying to fix a problem, I haven''t found another Olympic lifting book and/or DVD that is better. If you are a coach, this will give you a bunch of different views and ways to help someone see and feel each component of each lift.
Highly recommend as a set.

I bought this after buying Starr''s The Strongest Shall Survive because the descriptions of the lifts in that book (specifically the power clean) were not adequate to convince me I wasn''t going to hurt myself. This was perfect, laying out in exhaustive detail exactly how to perform the lifts, troubleshoot your form, and avoid injury. If you aren''t anywhere near a gym where you could be instructed personally, this is a great way to learn the forms. Mostly geared towards competitive Olympic lifting (obviously) but with sufficient detail on the power clean and the squat that I don''t feel my money was wasted.

Highly recommended

this book covers all areas needed to develop and further not only olympic lifts but the exercises and stretches that will lead up to these lifts. It covers nutrition, discusses programming and has a number of different programmes, and things to do leading up to competition. I havce already started to fuse my crossfit programming with the strength and power programme which I think will lead to massive improvements. An area I found particularly useful was the section on flexibility as this is the area that inhibits my movement the most. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in getting serious about olympic lifts - a must for crossfitters!

chapters:

introduction, foundations, the snatch, the clean, the jerk, error corrections, programming and training, supplmental exercises, nutrition, flexibility, competition, resources.

One area I would of liked to have seen different are the images: maybe a little bigger with lines showing the trajectory of the bar etc but a minor detail. a superb book

To start off, I like Greg Everett''s writing style: technical but clear.

The book covers the basics on how to learn the Oly lifts, but then goes into much more: sets & reps, nutrition, stretching... just about any area that would have an impact on Oly lifiting training. There is alot of detail, and a lot to read, but worth the effort.

Mr. Everett addresses controversial topics with good logic behind his view.

I purchased the companion DVD, which is also very good and helps tremendously if you are trying to learn the Oly lifts.

Both book and DVD are highly recommended for those with some weight training experience who are serious about learning the Oly lifts.
