Re: book on the snatch

that avatar does imply something less than serious...

on a sort of related note,

http://www.torrentz.com/42c070d9526d...60a3aaea61126b

not safe people! NOT SAFE

i found the world class coaching videos on a torrent. I thought that if the community wanted to get them and host them, then they would be readily accessible and quickly downloadable (think of every Crossfitter seeding at the same time!)

I think it's worth considering more P2P resources, in the open source spirit of crossfit. There are a few things that are hard to find, out of print, or unrealistically priced.

Re: book on the snatch

Personally, I think allowing the owners of the videos to continue to profit is a worthwhile venture. While I do support open source totally, I also understand that the people who did this didn't make a lot of money. They did it for love of the sport. Weightlifting in America is already difficult due to the fact that it simply doesn't get enough money. Our top athletes are subsidized to train like in other parts of the world. People who give things away, Like Coach Glassman and Coach Bergener, do it out of generosity. Simply taking something from someone who probably still, years later, is trying to recoup his initial costs, isn't generous.

Just my two cents.

Re: book on the snatch

all valid points.

perhaps weighlifting also struggles in America because it is a rare, closed-doors sort of thing.

a combination of lack of access, with few athletes and few coaches doesn't bode well for the long term development of the sport either.

Dan John made an excellent point once, paraphrasing "Do you think that if we treated Basketball the way we do Olympic Lifting, that there'd still be any kids left playing Basketball?".

I thought his point was also valid.

Re: book on the snatch

Earlier:"Coach Glassman loaned me a book on the snatch. It was the best book on the snatch I have ever read. I made a copy of it..."

Am I getting a mixed message here, or just mixed up?
