Weightlifting Renaissance By Mal Irwin Many years ago, I considered myself the up-and coming champion of the future. However, as is usually the case, sadly, study and work intervened to distract me from training. To be quite honest, I never forgot about my lifting career; just never had the time or often, the place. Bar and weights cannot be carried on aeroplanes. My full-time training effectively ended in 1974, at the age of twenty-one. I carried on whenever I had the chance, eventually selling my own Archer weights when I decided I would be too busy to ever train again. Bodyweight bloomed to 83kg, from trying to live the life of a professional geological consultant. My wife has a photo of me next to a bottle tree in the Domain at Sydney, forming parallel curves. However, life provide little opportunities to catch up on what was thought lost. I got a The end result, and the best, was a third at the 1986 States, with a 105+137.5 as a light 82.5kg (78kg, exactly). In the interim I had picked up a seventh Intervarsity Title at 75kg with 102.5 and 132.5 in Newcastle. One month later, my first son was born, weighing 4.7kg and restless. So the lifting went somewhat on hold, with squats in the garden shed, and power cleans on the lawn. It got so bad that I dislocated my elbow hanging nappies at 5 am one day after power jerks the night before. And as they say, the rest is history! Far from making 137.5 for the Master’s (that is the old 303lbs), I over did my overhead work to strain the supraspinatus tendon in my right shoulder. For nearly two months after achieving 130 at the 1994 States, I could not clean a weight, let alone do overhead work. Nonetheless after the lowly start in 1993, I consider that 100 and 130 were not bad weights at age 41. I had managed to do these lifts several times in "comebacks" through my twenties and early thirties. The question is can I repeat them in the late forties, let alone the fifties?

Although Weightlifting is considered the sport of strength, history has shown that the athlete's strength must be accompanied by skills developed from a knowledgeable trainer. Weightlifting consists of two movements executed in a standard order: first the snatch and then the clean jerk. There are both men and women Weightlifting events. Each athlete has the right to three attempts for each movement. The athlete’s best performances in both movements are put together to determine the final placement.   ATHENS 2004 Weightlifting

    (Redirected from Weight-lifting Server will be down for maintenance on 2004-06-11 from about 18:00 to 19:00 UTC. Weightlifting is a sport where competitors attempt to lift heavy weights mounted on steel bars. Weight-lifting contests have been common since ancient times (and were apparently included in the ancient Greek Olympics ), and were a part of the original Olympic games in 1896. Women's weight-lifting began in the 1980s and was added to the Olympic program in 2000. Weights are mounted on a steel " barbell " which weighs 20 kilograms for male competition and 15 for female competition. The weights themselves are rubber-coated steel discs, color-coded for their different weights, and held in place by 2.5 kg collars. Identical weights are placed at each end of the barbell. The barbell has patterns engraved on it to assist the lifters to get a steady grip on the bar. Competitors start with the weighted barbell placed in the middle of a 4 x 4 metre wooden floor, coated with non-slip material. Competitors compete in one of eight (seven for women) divisions determined by their body mass. The men's classes are 56 kg, 62 kg, 69 kg, 77 kg, 85 kg, 94 kg, 105 kg and over 105 kg. The women's classes are 48 kg, 53 kg, 58 kg, 63 kg, 69 kg, 75 kg, and over 75 kg. In each weight division, competitors compete in both the

    The genealogy of lifting traces back to the beginning of recorded history where man s innate weightlifting became a regular olympic event in 1920.
    T he genealogy of lifting traces back to the beginning of recorded history where man's innate fascination with physical prowess can be found among numerous ancient writings. A 5,000-year-old Chinese text tells of prospective soldiers having to pass lifting tests. Ancient Greek sculptures also depict lifting feats. The weights were generally stones, but later gave way to "dumbbells." The origin of the word dumbbells comes from the practice of removing clappers from bells, rendering them soundless during lifting. As sportsmen strove to organize athletics in the 19th century, weightlifters were on the cutting edge. European immigrants to America, particularly Scots, brought with them a strong competitive heritage that included weightlifting. As Americans nursed their infant sport, European athletes forged ahead, holding a European Championships. In 1896, the first modern day Olympics were held and weightlifting was included as an official sport. Weightlifting did not appear in the 1900 Games, but returned to the Games program in 1904. Weightlifting became a regular Olympic event in 1920. Three lifts were standard by 1932: the press (subsequently eliminated in 1972), the snatch and the clean-and-jerk. In 1932, there were five weight classes; today there are eight. The U.S. men, after reigning as World and Olympic Champions through the 1930s, '40s and '50s, were ranked 15th in the world in 1996 after a successful Olympic Games performance in Atlanta, Ga.

    Tara Nott, Weightlifting Tara is Nott just another woman. She is the first American woman to earn a weightlifting gold medal (2000 Sydney Olympic Games) and she is the only athlete in history to train at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in three different sports. She began her athletic career as a gymnast, before becoming an All-American women's soccer player. When she missed making the 1996 U.S. Olympic soccer team, Nott started weightlifting to keep in shape; at the time women's weightlifting was not even an Olympic sport. Women's weightlifting made its debut at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games and Nott took home the gold. Tara trains four hours, seven days a week, and her hard work and dedication have paid off. She is a holds five American records, is a four-time National champion and is one of only U.S. women who can clean and jerk twice her own body weight. Get Off My Land!* Tips for Squatting
    Tip #1

    Position feet shoulder width or a bit wider apart. Toes should be slightly turned out. Tip #2
    Place the bar on the back of your shoulders. (This should be done using a squat rack that you can back out of with the bar on your shoulders) Also place your hands on the bar slightly wider than shoulder width to help support and stabilize the bar.

    What Is Olympic-Style Weightlifting All About? The sport of Olympic-style "Weightlifting" is one of the world's most misunderstood and under-appreciated sports. Part of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 (with a women's event having been added in 2000), Weightlifting is the only Olympic sport in which heavy weights are used. The International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) and International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognize only two weightlifting events, which must be done in all competitions in the following order: a) the two hands snatch (snatch), and b) the two hands clean and jerk (C&J). The overall winner of any weightlifting competition is the athlete who lifts the highest amount of weight in the snatch and C&J (i.e., the heaviest weights successfully lifted in each event are combined) . This combined score is called the "Total." While awards are given at major competitions for each event as well as the Total, recognition in the sport of weightlifting goes to the athlete who lifts the greatest total weight in competition. When a weightlifting aficionado speaks of the "World Champion" in weightlifting, he or she is generally speaking about the winner in the Total. In the snatch , the bar is pulled in one explosive motion from the floor to full arm's length overhead. In order to make the lift easier to perform, athletes typically bend their legs quickly while the bar is rising in order to catch the bar at arm's length. The combined attributes of great strength and blinding speed are needed to accomplish this challenging event effectively. The best lifters in the world (in the lighter weight classes can lift as much as 2.5 times their bodyweight in the Snatch). The best superheavyweight weightlifters in history have lifted nearly 500 lb./227.5 kg. in this lift.

    The European Weightlifting Championships have a great importance, for the European Federation and for World Weightlifting in general, while for the Hellenic Weightlifting Federation, Greek Sports and the Loutraki-Perahora Municipality it constitutes a big organizational goal.
    For our country the organizational aspect of the European Championships is directly connected with the high level of Greek Weightlifting today and also with the efforts we make for the organization of the 2004 Olympic Games.
