Hi I'm new on here, this may be answered on another post, but im at work right now and can not look around. I'm planning on gaining some weight, and i was wondering if maybe olympic training might help, and if so, what are some work outs that you guys would suggest?

Thanks

    Traditional olympic lifting takes a long time to master the exercise techniques before you can start adding substantial weight to get bigger. Initially stick to compound exercises, Lat Pulls, Bench Press, Shoulder Press, Squats, Deadlifts. These will allow you to increase the weight and get bigger. Olypmic lifting generally increases power development, which needs to be done after some strength based training. I've been training for many years but still struggle with the snatch!

    First, you can't just jump into Olympic weightlifting - you need direct coaching from someone who knows their stuff or you will be nowhere near mastering the lifts.

    Second, if all you're trying to do is gain weight there is no point at all investing your time in Olympic weightlifting.
