This DVD was worth the purchase and the wait to be sent to NZ.

I have always been able to get a good amount of weight up but I wasn't efficient with my lifts.

Crossfit led me to the Olympic lifts and I had no clue as to form & technique for these lifts.

This volume represents a thorough presentation of the basic and advanced training to acquire and build the skills to successfully perform the 2 Olympic lifts. For those unfamiliar with Olympic lifting, this sport demands the development of flexibility, co-ordination, speed, and finally, power. Performance of the lifts represents a true measure of overall body strength and agility. All of this goes far beyond gym rat bodybuilding and power lifting (no disrespect - but what are you guys trying to accomplish?).

In more than 50 chapters, Greg Everret methodically works through the basics for learning and performing the lifts. This is probably the first time that I have seen both a precise description of the hook grip and the reasons to use it. Everret uses a unique approach to the lifts by breaking down the lifts into specific movements and exercises from the top down. Learning to lift from the floor is the last part of the lessons.

I am 65 years old and have recently returned to resistance training after a 10 year layoff. I wanted to take an approach different from a basic (and boring) conditioning regimen that focused on isolated muscle groups. Olympic lifting gives a true measure of athletic conditioning. My workouts now focus on learning the lifts and working on those movements such as squats, dead lifts, and presses that condition the muscle groups necessary to perform the lifts successfully.

See [...] for a good preview of the DVD.

Having done olympic lifts for the last 10 years but not having instruction on them either in about 9 had left my technique with some holes. I have always been able to get a good amount of weight up but I wasn't efficient with my lifts. This video shows just about if not every movement involved in olympic lifts in full speed as well as slow motion with an occasional pause where the point of emphasis is. When dealing with movements that are done in a split second this breakdown of the movement is vital in seeing what you want your athlete (or yourself) to be concentrating on. I recommend this for all lifters novice and experienced as we can all take something from it, well worth the investment.

Coming to the Olympic Lifts as a CrossFit coach, Greg Everett has made an incredibly thorough and instructional DVD here. When combined with the accompanying book, you are really able to get inside the details and technique of each lift, including several different progressions. Highly recommended only if you really want to learn how to perform and / or teach the lifts. Not for anyone looking for a quick, "get fit now!" program.

This is a well made DVD, and presents a logical approach to learning the Oly lifts.

I follow along with the DVD at home using a light PVC pipe to work on my technique.

If you do not have access to professional instruction, and want to learn the Oly lifts, this is a good option.

The book covers much more than the DVD, but for learning the lifts, the visual format of the DVD does a better job than the well written instructions in the book.

Crossfit led me to the Olympic lifts and I had no clue as to form & technique for these lifts. I would just muscle my way through them and it was ugly. This video not only broke down the form and technique it also made it simple and easy to follow. I am a visual learner and this helped me so much as opposed to looking at video's on you tube.

This DVD was worth the purchase and the wait to be sent to NZ. It teaches the basics of Olympic Lifts and I have not seen anything else that comes close.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Steven Ulrich on February 6, 2012
This DVD set is a perfect companion to Everett's book which has extremely detailed descriptions and many pictures. However, if you are one who learns visually or by example, the pictures may not be enough. The DVD steps in at this point and puts all of the drills into full-color motion. Don't expect any new material to be presented here that's not in the book nor any "bonus" sections either. Simply put, it's the book transferred into a video format. If you don't have access to an Olympic lifting coach locally, this DVD will give you a good start on the mechanics of the lifts.

The book and the video go hand in hand and are awesome tools for the beginner and the coach alike. You won't go wrong with the set. With the oly lifts seeing the movement in action is priceless.
