Re: olympic lifting at northern michigan university

Couple of the girls seem to have some sort of a timing mechanism or an initial hip movement before they begin their lift. I've never done this - does it help build momentum? Is it for timing??

Cool video by the way...

Re: olympic lifting at northern michigan university

There's a few folks I know up there in the Short Track development program. I wonder if they do O-lifting any time, I know one of the head guys at USS is encouraging it, so hopefully they are.

Re: olympic lifting at northern michigan university

Are they trying to get rid of NMU now (or again)? Does it have anything to do with the, um... activities that shall remain unnamed between members of the opposite sex... that took place there a few years ago? Or do they have new troubles?
