I usually don’t do the whole fan girl routine, but I just couldn’t help myself! Tonight’s the finale of the CrossFit Open. What do you think 14.5 will be?! Can’t wait to watch @grahamholmberg @jasonkhalipa @richfroning throwdown. I’m so excited! #FuBarbell #USAWeightlifting #crossfit #crossfitgirls #crossfitmen #Olympicweightlifting #snatch #clean #cleanandjerk #technique

For those of you who enjoyed my podcast with the @barbellshruggedpodcast boys, here’s another one with Nick Horton, “The Iron Samurai”, from Weightlifting Academy. I got a chance to meet Nick a few years ago at The American Open and have since been following his work in the weightlifting world. He’s a great guy and even better coach. This was a fun hour plus that we just got to hang out and banter about all things gym.

It’s really exciting to hear from athletes that are following my online program. Krista has been doing my Olympic Weightlifting Starter plan and just sent me this photo with the following note: “My name is Krista Everson, Ive been lifting for 3 years. After a 5 month hiatus, I was ready & focused to get back under the barbell. I bought your plan to do so. The videos are fantastic. Nice, slow, precise. Pointing out key elements in the lifts are great for newcomers and experienced lifters back that are getting back on the platform. The movement practice is great! It allows me to work on key elements of the lifts, slow things down and I can sense where my weaknesses are which is hugely useful. I’m starting to feel improvement in my stability & coordination in my snatch lift after 2 weeks on this program is encouraging and down right exciting! Looking forward to continuing on this program and to be platform ready for 2014!” If you want me to see your progress, log them on @codyapp after buying the plan. Let’s get platform ready in 2014!

2013 has been an exceptional journey in exploring barbell manipulation. I would say the majority of the coaches I had the pleasure of spending time with along with my personal coaching influences in the USA have all taught what we consider a classic “S” pull in weightlifting where the bar trajectory sweeps in and out before looping overhead or onto the shoulders. With the introduction of modern Russian technique, the big emphasis was on a much more linear bar path where any horizontal deviation would be considered less desirable. Our very own resident coach of the USOTC seems to be on board with this line of thought as well. Now before you go thinking that “we’re doing it all wrong,” I employ you to consider that our eyes have simply been opened to something different and worth evaluating. I’ve been playing around with this straighter style of pull for the last 6 weeks and let me be the first to tell you, having a straight first pull? No problem. Keeping that bar path ram rod straight after the second pull? Now that is something else all together. Is it more efficient? In theory. But you are what you practice; and whether it’s “S” pull, “I” pull or some combination of the two, as long as you are making your lifts and looking fluid, you are heading down the right direction and hopefully having some fun along the way. #FuBarbell #RussianWeightlifting #USAWeightlifting #crossfit #crossfitgirls #crossfitmen #Olympicweightlifting #snatch #clean #cleanandjerk #technique #instagramfitness
