American Weightlifting: Documentary

By Greg Everett
Just watched it with the crew at Deuce here in Venice. Rather long, but pretty cool. Worth a view.

Would of been interesting if they touched on the CrossFit deal a bit, but regardless got me inspired on my Oly lifting and some of the roots of. Coach B's stuff, Takano and Scmitz commentary was very cool

Re: American Weightlifting: Documentary

I liked it though it was a bit long and it seemed to be whining about the sad state of weightlifting in North America.

I would have liked to see information on how to build a lifter, the progression, cycles, accessory exercises, struggles etc.
I think including this would provide a better introduction to people new to the world of weightlifting and build more interest. Perhaps a Part 2 should be done.

Reread my comment....realized it sounds overly negative.

Documentary is well worth the purchase and view.

Re: American Weightlifting: Documentary

Guys, we actually did a podcast via skype with Greg before the movie's release. It's on the laptop at the gym.

A lot of the footage was shot before the CFGames went crazy popular.
