In the sport of Olympic weightlifting there are a host of unspoken rules that each athletes must follows. These rules are passed on through generations due the necessity of honoring tradition and the importance of keeping the competition process consistent. Perhaps one of the most "sacred" areas that this lifting etiquette is applied is the warm up room. Athletes have their individual warm ups down to such a detailed science that almost every move is done with purpose.
Needless to say TSAC is no competitive weightlifting arena, nor do I hope to implement all of these rules. However, I did want to share them with you in hopes that you can take away some of the common courticies that might be unseen in the novice lifter. A long time competitive Weightlifter turned accomplished coach, Bob Takano wrote a great piece on how to behave in the warm up room. Which ones would you like to see implemented?
