WE GOT OUR OWN FORUM


#1

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


#2

Yeehawwww... VIDEOS OF ME SOON WOOOO


#3

This forum is going to be one of the lowest trafficed forums.


#4

Well that goes hand in hand with the popularity of Olympic lifting in the U.S. in general, doesn't it? That is the way I like it, a close-knit sub-forum just like a close-knit group of people into Olympic weightlifting. Ahhh...


#5

I'm not sure if having our own forum is a good idea. There just won't be enough traffic. It is a negative feedback system, because the less traffic there is the less ppl check for updates, the less traffic there is...

Anyways, this will be interesting, none the less.


#6

I think it is beneficial for anyone interested. I would still like for them to keep it because if you take it out, it just seems like something is missing from the forum list since Olympic weightlifting is such a huge component of weightlifting in general. I'll try to keep this forum interesting with whatever I come across.


#7

Maybe we should post articles and links to decent weightlifting websites. It might drive more traffic from "outsiders" who are searching for weightlifting info.


#8

I can power clean 80 kilos. I want to achieve 140.


#9

I don't think you'll get as low traffic as y'all might think. I'm not a big o-lifter but incorporate some o-lifts into my routine quite often. Now I don't have to sift through a bunch of threads to find what I'm looking for and I know exactly where to go when I have a question for one of you with more knowledge than I. There's less clutter in strength sports/bodybuilding forums and less confusion as to where to post a question regarding an o-lift.

I think there'll be less trolling and more genuine questions and better discussions, also.


#10

I observe Olympic lifting the same way I observe Big Wave Surfing - with immense awe and respect.


#11

No worries, I'll contact Type2B!!! Maybe even Chiktuna if I am feeling generous.


#12

definatley prefer when Oly, Strongman, and Powerlifitng all in one forum.
now I got to browse thru 3 separate forums.

whose bright idea was this?


#13

I don't like it either. The old way was better and easier to navigate.


#14

I did that for like a month in the old strength sports forum. Didn't really pan out. Not enough traffic. Also, Olympic lifting is not documented very well on the net.


#15

well... lets see how this works out...

btw... we need the OlyLifting Training Log in this forum.


#16

+1


#17

I'm really happy they made a sub-forum, I think it will generate more on-topic discussions. By the way, I just started exclusively Oly-Lifting in July, loving it so far!


#18

Funky. It'll be interesting to see how much traffic we have here.
