Words can’t even begin to describe awesome it was to volunteer in the Training Hall at Worlds this past weekend! The amount of greatness there was overwhelming! It was truly an honor to work with/meet so many great athletes, volunteers, and media crew. Thank you Neil @waxmansgym for offering me the opportunity to volunteer at such an amazing event!

I can honestly say this is one of the greatest gifts I have ever received! I want to thank everyone who was involved in orchestrating this truly amazing surprise! Words can not even explain how truly grateful I am for this. Everyone at Validus is like family to me and to experience that moment with everyone was a real blessing. A huge thank you to my amazing wife, aka the mastermind behind all of this, for pulling this off behind by back lol, you da real mvp and I love you!

Almost 4 years ago I taught one of my first weightlifting classes and the knowledge and experience that I've gained over the years is beyond priceless! I would've never discovered my love for weightlifting if it wasn't for crossfit. Thank you Tom, Arturo, and Manrique for bringing me into crossfit and always pushing me past my limits to become a better athlete and future coach. There has been a lot of ups and downs over the years and I still have a lot to learn, but my passion for weightlifting is still strong! I will continue pushing myself to become a better weightlifting coach and help people reach their full potential both mentally and physically!

One of the basic requirements of effective technique that stands out to me in weightlifting is, Fluidity of Motion - "The coordination of the distinct phases of weightlifting movement, both internally and externally, to maintain correct trajectory as it relates to the most efficient theoretical models." - USAW Weightlifting is poetry in motion and one of the reasons why I love this sport!

Today I had the opportunity to teach my first youth lifter the weightlifting progressions. Starting weightlifters at a young age is ideal and arguably necessary for producing elite athletes in the long run. In the US, it unusual to see proper athletic training at young ages, especially in weightlifting. New youth athletes will progress with almost any weightlifting program, but the goal is to build the proper foundation to support maximal long term progress while being safe and having fun! He's a great kid with a big personality and a bright future in weightlifting! weightlifting usaw youthfitness youthweightlifting snatch cleans goals crossfit thefuture

Today was Katie's first day learning the Snatch! Learning the progressions of the Snatch, Clean, and Jerk are so important because when exposed to partial movements instead of full movements the learning curve is enhanced. Also, if the lifter is having difficulty with a certain movement in the lift they can return to the previous movement in the progression to correct that movement and then move on once it has been improved. Looking forward to seeing her progress in the next few months! usaw weightlifting learnsomethingnew barbell girlswholift gains goals
