About the Author:

Carl Miller has dedicated himself to analyzing and tweaking the techniques of Olympic lifting. During the 1970s, in addition to his duties with the Olympic team, he was a National coach, World coach, elementary school teacher and vice principal. As a teacher and vice principal Miller developed physical conditioning programs for the kids in his school. During his 30 years, and still counting, as founder and co-owner of Carl & Sandra's Physical Conditioning Center, lifters seek out Carl, his son Shane and staff for Olympic-style training. Carl & Sandra's Conditioning Center stands apart from other gyms because Carl Miller's philosophy revolved around the benefits of weight training long before it became popular. He weaves the hundreds of tiny components of Olympic-style weightlifting into beneficial fitness programs for gym members with a wide variety of profiles, and at the same time, his Conditioning Center trains a team of nationally competitive masters Olympic weightlifters.

Review:

''Carl's honesty and integrity are demonstrated throughout this book as he provides precise instruction necessary to lift correctly, minimize injury and achieve optimal results. Carl has a unique collection of observations, statistics and facts gathered from nearly 50 years of coaching in the strength and conditioning world. He has coached at all levels of competition. I feel that this book is a must read for any serious student or coach interested in strength and conditioning.'' --R. Marvin Royster, MD, Orthopaedic Surgeon for Merrist School, Atlanta and the Atlanta Braves

''My friend Carl Miller has been practicing and coaching Olympic-style weightlifting at the highest level for 50 years. Few, if any, can match his knowledge and experience. When Carl speaks, serious lifters listen.'' --Clarence Bass, author of nine books on fitness and aging, including the most recent, Great Expectations: Health Fitness Leanness without Suffering, and a regular contributor to Muscle and Fitness Magazine

''The Sport of Olympic-Style Weightlifting: Training for the Connoisseur updates Carl Miller's popular and quickly out-of-print Olympic Lifting Training Manual of the late 1970s. This new work reflects the best of Carl's teachings and is packed with tons of worthwhile tips and secrets to strength success. This book belongs on every weightlifting and strength coach's bookshelf.'' --Harvey Newton, author Explosive Lifting for Sports, USA Weightlifting National and Olympic Coach (1981-84), NSCA Executive Director (1995-99), Owner of Newton Sports.
