Wall Chart/Diagram of Olympic Lifts

Good Morning Folks:
I've been doing CF for about two months and CFE for about a month --great programs (especially for someone like me who comes to CF and its iterations from running/cycling/kayaking background!). As I'm fairly new to olympic lifts, I find myself always having to go to the demos to recall how to accurately do them.

Does anyone know of a place where I could purchase or print-out a wall chart of olympic lifts? I know of plenty of places on the web that give print-out instructions, but do so for each type of olympic lift, and what I'm looking for is a larger poster that shows many of them at once.
thanks!

Re: Wall Chart/Diagram of Olympic Lifts

This is a good compilation.

Also, below in the "suggested products" there are some Califronia Strength ones that show 3 different lifters doing each of the lifts.

Bo and Shane: Thanks! I guess i should've googled "poster" instead of chart or diagram...so much for Occam's Razor!

I'm assuming they use 3 people from a wide range of body dimensions right?

Why would that be necessary?

But, it's Caleb Ward, Jon North, and Donny Shankle in the Cal Strength posters.

Re: Wall Chart/Diagram of Olympic Lifts

I've found the Starting Strength DVD by Mark Rippetoe really good. It has squat, deadlift, bench press, press and clean.
I also bought the book with the dvd.

Re: Wall Chart/Diagram of Olympic Lifts

This is a great resource (WFS), you can print out individual pictures and put them in a sequence.
