Korean National Team Training

For those who have never seen actual weightlifting athletes train, this video by US athlete Alex Lee (62 kg) shows the intent and precision with which the weightlifter moves. It is not about beating the bar with any means possible; it is about mastering movement with the bar. Sure these people are strong and powerful, but they are also masters of technique, body awareness and efficiency. Note their ability to lower the barbell between reps.

Thanks, Alex! (via GoHeavy)

Saw this video and it is amazing the precision and speed at which they are moving. Weightlifting, what an amazing sport yet so misunderstood and under appreciated in the U.S. Too bad.
