True Natural Raw Strength journal, articles, and rants of a strength chasing mountain man. I am a competitive Olympic lifter and hunter. I have lifted weights since 1996, and started doing in Olympic lifts in 2008. I have a good handle on persistance, determination, what works, and nutrition. My training has always been drug free and simplistic, focusing on the foundations of proper training and diet.

Muscle Clamp Barbell Collars
These are the best training clamp to use for weightlifting in my opinion. They slide on very easily and with a turn of the lever they clamp tight. The muscle clamps stay tight even when the barbell is dropped. If you have a fair amount of weight on the bar and you drop repeatedly, you may have to re-tighten the muscle clamps at the end of your set. I will say that they stay tighter than any other clamp I have used. You can get them for a fair price on amazon.com. I have had this set for 2 years and have had no failures with them.
