Default Ilya Ilyin Interview

May be of interest for you weightlifting aficionados. Some interesting nuggets on training modalities and a general approach to the sport. If only we could enjoy the luxury of being one of the best weightlifters in the world with the opportunity to dedicate ourselves full time to the pursuit of the sport.

[edit] and enjoy the freakish endowments he was blessed with.

Don't forget about the freakish drug use as well.

Enjoy watching him lift.

What's his weight when not competing? These olympic lifters don't go up much in weight it seems. This one guy at the gym does powerlifting I heard him talking how he weighted 220 2 weeks before comp. His weight class is 198. Seems like he gained too much?

With a 24 hour weigh in you can drop a ton of weight via dehydration. Crawl on scale, rehydrate.

If powerlifting was an endurance sport cutting that much weight would make you feel drained. Even after gaining it back the next day. They should do weigh in on the day of the comp.

Some sports do. But mist guys train well above their competition weight so they can eat more and make better gains. I'm not sure about international OL'ing off hand and I think it even varies by PL federation. Morning weigh in limits dehydration to about 5%. 24 hour weigh in and anything goes if you're willing to rehydrate with IV fluids.

One of my fave vids from last years Worlds. Never fails to amaze me how quickly he sets up and lifts, not to mention the speed of his jerk etc (lol@that 190kg power clean as well...).

Ilyan been owning his weight class for a while now.

Years ago when I saw the chinese lift I knew they were cut from a different cloth.

I could watch Lu Xiaojun, Liao Hui, Tian Tao and most of their female lifters all day.

If you search YouTube for Coach Wu and also obviously LiftHard's site there's a ton of stuff on the Chinese method and how obsessive they are about positions, tempo, balance etc. That CrossFit chick Diane Fu has a lot of stuff on her blog with Coach Wu as well.
