Help for a New Lifter


#1

I am about to start lifting for the first time, and when I find the nearest club with a good coach I will be going down there to get some coaching. Before I go down there, I want to do my homework and learn as much about the lifts as possible. Ive done google searches, but have found lots of what I believe to be rubbish advice.

Can anyone recommend any good articles for Olymopic Lifting for beginners?

Thanks
