This video was shot before
This video was shot before everyone went nuts about Louie Writing a book on Olympic weightlifting and having travis cooper snatch with bands. Pretty good nuggets in this video.
Olympic lifts are best for triple extension
He looks like a older branch warren Hahaha
Look closely at Lou's neck. It's important.
OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING IS THE REAL DEAL...POWERLIFTING IS SOME BULLSHIT....

After getting to hang out with Jujimufu and Tom, I decided to make a video on why Juji doesn't train the olympic lifts and why the general population might stay away from them as well.
weightlifting makes weight lifting a science and boring, self deprecating and a long journey.
If i want a sport that takes thousands of hours to even become reasonable, they invented golf for that!
If I want to push my body and mind to the max, and struggle to stand up after a workout, lifting weights (squat, deadlift and bench) does this very very well. Plus you have progression based on effort, plus programming.
N.B* was in my university oly team, was trained by a national champion who represented country at commonwealth games. I found the squat to be a far more impressive movement in itself, for whatever reason a heavy high bar squat was far more alluring as a dream than a heavy snatch for example.
But... He said that it was a healthy issue why he didnt recomend it, not about enjoyment.
My globo gym purchased bumper plates, Rogue bars, and a platform. You are not allowed to weightlift. One guy was told to stop doing power cleans because he was dropping the weight on the ground. So what's the point of buying the equipment??? On top of that...our gym has the weightroom on the 2nd floor...pretty stupid. All the cardio studios and day care is on the first floor. I'm glad to afford two gyms (Crossfit)...so I can do some weightlifting.
How is possible that I love lifting weights but hate Olympic weight lifting? I feel exactly like the video describes Juji probably feels. Oly lifting is just a different sport with so many things to learn that really ruins all the fun of lifting...
And who the hell olympic lifted anyway before the internets (except the traditional olympic lifters)? it is just a fad...
It’s hard to do olympic lifts when you’re jacked...not enough range of motion
