    Our head coach is ex-Romanian lifter Dragomir Cirlosan and I know a guy that interned w/ the Romanian weighlifting team who stated their training is quite similar to the Bulgarian model. Heavy focus...

    Hmmm...first question: can you properly execute the Olympic lifts??
    Response if question one is "no": Don't do them unless you mean to do them right and take time to learn them.

    No-Hands Front Squats...

    are the way to go. Rack the bar exactly like a normal front squat, then point both arms out straight ahead. This will force a very upright posture.
