Hi, I'm new to CrossFit but not new to working out. My question is how should I start out with the O-Lifts, websites, books, any tips would be helpful. By the way I do have access to all the necessary equipment.

THIS WEBSITE ROCKS!!
THANKS

Hi Mike-

If you can find a coach in your area that is your best bet although the lifts CAN be self taught if you are patient. A video camera can be vry helpful for this. The World Class Coaching tapes are fantastic as well.

I wish I could find a coach, but I live in South Dakota. So find a coach is going to be hard. I'll keep on truckin' in spite of my situation.

Mike,
The USAW web site lists a contact for OL in South Dakota, maybe he can help you find a coach.

Thanks for trying to help me out, but the city you listed is about 300 miles away. So no luck

Mike,
The best solution in a remote location situation like yours is video. Get a video camera, take some clips of your lifting, and send them to a coach or post them online. I don't think you'll have a problem finding someone competent and willing to take a look and offer coaching tips. Also, get a video instruction tape, such as World Class Weightlifting or a tape from IronMind or U.S.A.W. Club Coach's Manual.
