Pour les yeux inexpérimentés, les levés olympiques semblent faciles, jusqu’à ce qu’ils l’essaient. Ils pensent que soulever la barre au-dessus de la tête est aussi simple que de la saisir et de la lancer au plafond. J’ai eu la chance de m’entraîner et de regarder enseigner L’entraîneur Pierre Roy, l’un des meilleurs entraîneurs olympiques de ce côté du globe.

As in Figure skating, the knees and ankles are the prime suspects of problems (often times hidden) and evaluating them is primordial. In this case, Brazilian Jujitsu has a few principle issues to deal with from the get go. One of the major concern when someone starts to practice this sport is that you can’t really be prepared, even if you have years of weight lifting experience.
