Just wondering if anybody knows of a good oly weightlifting DVD. Something comparable to a Louie Simmons for powerlifting or something of the sort. I have had no luck finding a good one. Any help on a good weightlifting DVD would be great. Thanks in advance.

Dan John's "Taking It From The Ground Up" is a great dvd for teaching olympic lifting. I found the methods in that very effective for learing proper form and execution of the lifts, step by step. It's also slightly funny. He showed a bunch of the stuff on the dvd to a group of us in L.A. and the entire group showed a huge improvement in that short session.

"The World's Fastest Lift"
"The World's Most Powerful Lift"

Both by World Class Coaching LLC

This is what Crossfit recommends, and what I have. I couldn't find it as a DVD, and it was hard to find as VHS.

I don't even know if they sell it anymore, but I got it from Bit Torrent.

Hey AC, no DVD, but I have found the following videos extremely helpful.

http://www.aceathlete.com/...hatch/video.htm
Description of both lifts and their variations by Gayle Hatch.

http://www.strengthweb.com/...er_lifting.html
Chad Ikei breaks down the lifts

www.weightliftingexchange.com
Great resource for learning about o-lifting. No tutorial per say, but there are litereally hundreds of slow-motion videos that analyze bar path of various olympic lifters.

Hope that helps and everything is going well.

The Olympic Weightlifting VHS and book from IronMind by Jim Schmitz are excellent. Schmitz was the US Olympic Weightlifting Team coach 2 or 3 times.
