No general thread up. So here we go..


Since I started with weightlifting some weeks ago. Should I drop out the bench press exclusively from my program and do push presses instead?
Is the bench press so inferior in weightlifting that you should use your energy for other stuff?

Bench press is the most fun weightlifting exercise.

I'm no oly lifter, but I can't see how benching would benefit your C&J or snatch.

Well no, there is no real benefit to benching for oly lifting but I think you're going to find that it's too hard to learn proper form for the oly lifts without a coach, you'll make no progress and be back to regular strength training. If you're seriously commited to it then cut out bench, but I'm thinking that you'll just come to strength training and have a really shitty bench

I'm jumping to the conclusion that you don't have a coach because you're asking programming questions. If you don't have a coach then technique is going to be very hard to learn. I don't think you understand how hard it will be.

Also you're not even close to intermediate, strstd makes everyone feel good about themselves.

i wouldnt say this is right.
people think Oly lifts are some godgiven exercises that requires the upmost perfect form, and if you dont have then that you wont progress and you will die.
people overhyper those exercises so much. its ridiculous.

just focus on general strength and technique. your form doesnt have to be perfect. keep working on your technique with video recordings. you can do it by yourself.
people who thinks a coach is ABSOLUTE needed have no clue. you can learn it yourself well enough without one if you are self aware.

I'm telling you it's going to be very hard, and you should seriously consider if it's what you want to do. Are you doing it because Kyle Harrington (who has a coach) or Cal strength made it look cool? Are you doing it because you want to be SO SHREDDED xDDD like some Chinese oly lifter? Don't just not do it if you feel it's something you would really enjoy, but seriously consider if you are going to put in the enormous amount of time and effort it will require to be even passable as OK.

But yeah, if you're serious about it and you don't really care how your chest looks then there's no real reason to use energy on bench you could on on push press/OHP

it isnt that hard. read about the technique, and read a lot. watch some videos
then try it out for yourself. pay attention to how you perform it and record yourself so you can track the bar bath.

sure, if you are going to be olmpic champion then its crucial to get a coach, but it can be self taught pretty good.
people put those exercises on a pedestall for no reason. sure they are a bit more technical then most exercises, but tha doesnt mean it cant be self thaught to and get a good technique

btw im not saying getting a coach isnt usefull. it is very usefull indeed and will give you progress A LOT faster, but everyone cant afford a coach or may not even be close to one.

so teaching it yourself is acceptable if you are humble, and self aware. video record and compare to others, and read about it.

just do a regulare strength program with one of the lifts before your program as a warm up. i highly recommend getting the book:
Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes & Coaches by greg everett

stick with your current strength program and work on oly technique. the more the better. use the steps shown in the book.

so on workout A you would start with C&J and/or it variations for learning.
on B you start with Snatch and/or it variations for learning

stop doing oly lifts and let it fucking rest before it gets chronical and you cant fucking wipe your ass without it inflaming. visit a physiotherapist with some experience.
if not that start slowly by doing some strength work for your wrists and after a long period of time(WAY after the pain have gone) start stretching, slowly.

If your lifts are shit tier you need to focus on building up a strong base. This includes "heavy" OHP + Squat work (both highbar back squat and front squats).

Oly focused programs wont always get you strong. I second other anon's advice of keeping with SL and doing an oly movement first then the strength work.

Anonymous 2013-08-15 08:58:59 No.21976091
I'm not going to read all this bull shit thread. But in answer to OPs question.

Essentially, the bench press is great for developing brute strenght in the chest and tris. Probably without equal.
So that's good, and for a n00b lifter that's a great thing to be working on... so bench.

On the other hand, you can tighten up your shoulder felxibility and make overhead squating or snatch work difficult. All weightlifting books (available all over the fucking internet you cunt) address this.

But since you're weightlifting now, just do what your coach tells you. If you don't have a coach, and / or haven't competed, don't dare call yourself a weightlifter or claim you weightlift. You need a coach at least and you need to be focused on competition. Adipowers does not a weightlifter make.

I have been powerlifting for about a year.

160kg/100kg/210kg at the same time weightlifter bro was teaching me power cleans and clean pulls i think it was called.

Anyway i have moved away so i am no longer in contact with him. Was wondering what you guys would think of doing something like this

Monday Week 1
Clean P + H. clean (knee)
Push Press
Back squat
Accessory movements


Clean & push Press 1x10
Front squat 3x3
Bench press or military press 3x5

C. pull + H. Clean (hip)
Behind the neck push press
Back squat
Deadlift ( I have a goal of 280kg so i want to keep these in) but will do 1x5 intill i want to focus on them again before a comp
then back off with weight and do clean pulls.

The following week I would clean & puss press Monday and Friday. With deadlifts on friday as well.

Accessory movements would be to target lagging muscles so for me i would do
Pendlay row
Stiff leg deadlift
rear delt shoulder laterals.
Weighted planks
chin ups.

Not all on the same day however.

THat's all fine.

But you should be learning to snatch before you learn to C&J.

So maybe you're not confident doing that without a coach, but at the very least you need to be doing overhead squats, drop snatches, snatch balances, snatch grip DLs, etc.

That way, when you do have a coach, or whatever, you'll be able to get stuck right in to learning stuff very well very quickly.

Look at me being sound and offering advice. haha

You haven't even hit failure and you're bitching about stuff. Dude take this advice and take it good:

Shut the fuck up and carry on lifting. All you need to focus on is your form, progression and your diet. There is nothing else that should concern you at this very point. Jeez

Anonymous 2013-08-15 09:41:53 No.21976515
Your best bet is to follow something like SS.
But add in a lot of flexibility work, attempt overhead squats while standing close to, and facing, a wall. The overhead squat is probably the best exercise for learning the oly lifts to begin with and without a coach.

You also want to stretch your hamstrings... so straight legged deadlifts (and stiff legged deadlifts) will help there.


Both you guys would benefit from doing the first part (the support lifts) outlined in an article called 'A beautiful snatch' that was posted on t-nation years ago. In fact, because I'm a sound cunt

The thing with weightlifting and bench press is related to the fact that training your pec reduces your flexibility, in particular for the snatch.
My trainer says that the pec is the enemy of the snatch and rightly so but that doesn't mean you shouldn't train it.
You CAN bench press, you CAN train you pec but remember to ALWAYS do flexibility exercises for the pec before and after the training session.
