“HOW HEAVY IS TOO HEAVY? CHOOSING TRAINING WEIGHTS”

In this USA Weightlifting article, coach Greg Everett shares his insight on choosing the proper loads when practicing the weightlifting lifts (i.e., clean & jerk, snatch) and their derivatives (e.g., power clean, power snatch). I like his inclusion of daily squat technique practice at the beginning and end of each training session with his athletes/clients. Squatting is a skill that must be refined with regular practice if a person has any hope of pushing serious loads.
