Olympic Weight Lifting

I’m really interested in olympic weight lifting to increase my speed, explosiveness, and vertical. I’ve already read through Dan John’s site. I was wondering if anyone had any other reading suggestions for olympic weight lifting? books or websites? thanks…

check out “The weightlifting encyclopedia” I forgot who it is from.

Artie Dreshler is the author of the WL Encyc.

Jim Schmitz’s books and videos are good.

Ironmind’s tapes give you a good look at the pros in action.

USAW’s instructional tapes…I think you need to see the lifts in order to do them correctly.

If you want to really get into it, check out the translated russian texts…Elite FTS has these.
