Ep. 38 – In the Trenches with Greg Everett

Show Outline

Greg is an amazing Olympic weight-lifting coach. Moreover, he’s also an anatomy and coaching geek like myself, so that made for a pretty amazing interview!

In this interview, we cover the following:

  • Greg’s general background, and how he originally got into Olympic weightlifting.
  • Answers to common questions such as:
  • Where do you place your hands on the snatch?
  • Elbows “locked” or “long” on the pull?
  • What is ideal neck position in the squat and/or pull?
  • How do you improve wrist flexibility to front squat and/or catch cleans?
  • A discussion on how to catch the bar on multi-rep sets of jerks or push presses.
  • An awesome cue Greg uses to get the abs working correctly in the squat.
  • The final question – one big mistake Greg has made, and what he’s learned from it over the years.

      Sorry about that – this is why meatheads shouldn’t interact with technology :)

      I fixed it and uploaded it again. Let me know if there are any other issues.

      Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing this interview. It actually is the prefect way for me to get better introduced to Greg as I have his Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes & Coaches scheduled for delivery later today. With a nice quiet weekend ahead I plan on spending a lot of time outside enjoying this unusually warm weather for upstate NY and reading for most of the time.
