    What is the best or darned good weightlifting DVD?

    ????

    I have been working out on and off for about 10 years, but have been going at it seriously for about 2 years or so.

    The thing is, there are a lot of exercises that I just don't know the names of that I would like to start doing, and getting the best form possible (I have no ego, I want to avoid injury) and get really strong lifting weights the right way.


    Plus, I don't work out with anyone, so I want to work out without depending on anyone.

    Please, hook me up with some links, some titles, and if I can find these vids used off Amazon that would be awesome.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for, but Mark Rippetoe is going to be coming out w. a DVD soon.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Do you want to learn powerlifting or olympic lifting? You'll need to find an olympiclifting gym/coach to learn olympic lifts, unless you only want to learn the power versions which many people teach themselves.

    I own this 5-DVD set. This DVD set has the 3 powerlifts, many compound as well as isolation exercises.

    Check out the selection at elitefts.com
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
