Checking Out : Olympic Weightlifting for Masters

Looks great.

Looks great.

Matt Foreman's 'Olympic Weightlifting for Masters: Training at 30, 40, 50 & Beyond' looks at the various aspects of programming and expectations for a slightly older athlete; notably how particular elements differ from their younger counterparts.

As one of the reviewers says :

After reading Matt's book I now longer feel I have to apologize for lifting less than my younger cohorts. -Peter Nathan, World Champion.


NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

And if you're looking for other training-related books I recommend, check out the complete lists on Goodreads.

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
Already got one? Looking for something specific? Swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.
