We get asked questions repeatedly from athletes and coaches about the never-ending debate regarding Olympic-style weightlifting for athletes and whether or not they are SAFE or EFFECTIVE or even worth the time to coach and teach them…

There are many ways to skin a cat, but we simply prefer to use weightlifting as main-stay in our programming and for good reason.

The question asked was more or less “Do you utilize Olympic weightlifting for your athletes and why/why not?” Check out the video response below to see my answer!


What are your thoughts? Do you utilize the Olympic lifts in your own training? Why/why not? Be sure to drop me a comment below!
