    I’m sorry, but the whole thing about big biceps doesn’t have to mean that
    you can’t perform some movements.

  2. I’ve watched a lot of your videos and you are always articulate, always
    objective and give damn good advice. I just enjoy your point of view on
    most things, like this video. OLY lifts – man muscle, functional movements.
    Speed, flexibility, power- boom. Look at Dmitry Klokov. Looks like a
    bodybuilder but is in fact a world class OLY lifter. Anyway, thanks for
    your videos and keep up the strong work.

  3. well said sir, form follows function….all the beach muscle in the world
    wouldn’t amount for half the value you get from doing the real stuff

  4. Cant have big guns and do olympic weightlifting? Check out hennequin, a
    french weightlifter. He’s got massive biceps, and he is one of the best
    lifters in the world.

  5. but they aint aesthetics gods. some of them look like the average generally
    fit person. they also have NO ARMS. if that’s what you want, go for it lol,
    ill see you on a sunny beach somewhere and we’ll see who turns the most
    heads. cheers.

    i have question in this matter and would really appreciate some serious
    answers. does training with full range of motion hinder hypertrophy?

  7. Bodybuilders. mmeh. I have a great slogan for you Elliot……. It comes
    from a well known Rugby prop forward….Andrew Sheridan. He is 6ft4. 229lb
    weight……his powerlifting weights are close to elite level and his 100m
    sprint time is incredible for his build. The slogan is……..”Its no use
    being able to lift a cow………if you can’t even catch a cow”. Nuff said
    about bodybuilders lack of function…….many of em can barely walk.

    All I do is olympic lifting, and out of all the strength sports, it gets
    the most respect out of them all. People love to watch it and women find it
    super sexy 😉

  9. I would go with whatever time you can do your workout more effectively.
    When I was working 14 hours and had a 24 hour gym available I would go at
    0200 because no one was in there, so I was able to get everything done
    without waiting to use anything.

  10. I would do it before work, working out tends give an energy boost
    afterwards and it might actually help you stay up. Then again, waking up a
    little earlier and working out in the morning (what im doing currently) can
    be pretty awesome as well once you get used to it. Try ’em all!

  11. only a sample size of one, but what helped my was doing just hang cleans.
    When I started out, my power cleans were weak because I was using basically
    nothing except the hip chain. Hang cleans taught me how to use my traps and
    everything else to get the full body working.

  12. Am bodybuilding atm and have been looking to start Olympic Weightlifting,
    this video has cemented my decision to join a club. Thanks Elliot.

  13. I would say Olympic weight lifting would be the better to pick you are
    still going to have a good body and you get the bragging rights of being an
    Olympic weightlifter
