Four important points to know about Anderson.1. He lifted during a period that included 3 lifts. His snatch/c&j would likely have been higher without the press.2. He lifted during a period when the bar could not contact the body during the pull. He had to use very inefficient technique.3. He was forced out of the sport well before his prime because he made a little money on the side for charity.4. He was on top of the world. It's pretty difficult to instill in your mind that you need to lift vastly more when you are already setting world records. (however he DID continue to improve, see above)It is about squatting heavy. The Bulgarians you like so much were obsessed with squatting heavy.
Can't see how saying that emphasizing heavy squats is outdated proves its ineffective. The fact is that the level of weightlifting in the world is now of a lower level than it was 20-30 years ago, which would indicate the "new wave" is not necessarily superior. ;)
The second weight class change, which was far more stupid and destructive, was purely to erase the "unachievable records."
I'm speaking of the changing of the classic weight classes, which was done supposedly to allow room for women in the Olympics (the first time) but was also justified by claiming the old, superior records, were tainted. The second weight class change, which was far more stupid and destructive, was purely to erase the "unachievable records."
