Olympic lifting training

This summer I am looking to specialize in some Oly lifting and eventually compete in some competitions. My question is what is a good way to be training. I am a person that likes to have a program and a goal so I am looking for a Oly lifting program that will help increase all my lifts so I can compete.

Re: Olympic lifting training

Catalyst Athletics posts an olympic lifting WOD. I haven't done it but it looks great if you wanted to specialize for a few months. http://www.performancemenu.com/

There is an article on the Pendlay.com site on the "articles" page that outlines a beginners routine, then several other articles dealing with how to modify it for different situations. There is also a thread on the forum where people who are using the program discuss it...

Re: Olympic lifting training

All of the resources listed are excellent. I would add Chad Vaughn's Oly Athlete to the list (w/f safe). He posts a beginners program, a meet program and a hybrid program.

Also, if you think you might need a coach, you are not too far from Neal Thompson at CrossFit Boston and Dave Picardy at North Shore CrossFit (also w/f safe). I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

Re: Olympic lifting training

Thanks guys these are all great resources I have some research to do. Also I am going to most likely try and find a coach until I perfect the lifts. Any other suggestions besides those two. Any closer to the worcester area where I live during summer.

Re: Olympic lifting training

There is a trainer at All Access Fitness in Shrewsbury that was a collegiate oly lifter named Josh. I'm not even sure of his last name. He's not a crossfit fan and kinda looks at me and my workout partner strangely. Apparently he knows his stuff. I think I'd travel to Boston or Newton for some coaches that are coaching oly lifting everyday. None of the clients I see him with at All Access oly lift. The gym tried hosting a class but couldn't get enough interest.

That's kind of a crappy referral, but if you REFUSED to travel 40 min from Grafton- that's a decent start.
