    Recreational lifters doing Olympic lifts are like recreational grapplers fighting in Pride.

    I didn't say just do overhead squats and stop doing everything else. The article talks about how overhead squats improved his discus and shot put throws.

    We're talking about core strength. In other words stablizing muscles. the overhead squat hits all of the stabilizing muscles below the neck.

    Especially when they're trying to show off for the chick in Spandex on a nearby treadmill and try to snatch way too much and end up falling backwards (true story! :D)

    Blah, don't get into the Semantics of Olympic Lifts. Most Olympic lifts are Hang Cleans, Power Cleans, Power Snatch and Hang Snatch. Alot of trainer's are against Olympic lifts for people who aren't doing those lifts for competition lifting, football, etc. If you have a lagging muscle area and you're only doing Olympic lifts, you stand the chance of injury, or delayed progress unless you incorporate concentrated lifts on the parts that are weaker.

    And, most places don't have bumper plates or platforms. Some dipshit at my gym yesterday was doing hang snatches with metal weights in a half power rack. I was hoping he'd drop it on his head. There are reasons there are signs that say no Olympic style lifting...

    Alot of trainers also say that olympic lifts are the best way to develop full body strength including core strength which is what this thread is all about.

    Still, for most Olympic lifts you want a good trainer who can teach you them. If you tell an average guy out in the world to go do overhead squats, more than likely he's going to **** himself up.

    Clean and jerks are a lot easier to do than overhead squats. There's less likelihood of injury as you can always get away from the weight if it's too heavy, whereas in overheads you're more likely to drop it on your dome.
