    TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT OFFER!!! The olympic lifts are an invaluable tool to any individual who wants to get stronger, bigger or both. I saw so much progress when using them in so many different areas of my training, that it would take to long to mention all of them.

    As far as powerlifting is concerned, the man who taught me the olympic lifts was a former power and olympic lifting competitor. After beginning the olympic lifting, he abandoned powerlifting for awhile. When he finally went back 5 years later, he deadlifted 720. At a bodyweight of about 275 - 290. Not bad after 5 years of not performing the lift. So in summary definately do it.

    I started emailing someone at the australian weight lifting federation.
    about lifting in australia. next thing i know.......one of my emails was forwarded to the assistant coach at the AIS.
    He emailed me and said
    and i quote:

    "We normally do not open
    the facility to the public but I have been given the OK to bring you in"

    It made me feel pretty special.......but the truth is they dont know much about me.......so its more of a favour than a "hey your talented"

    Im so stoked though
