I have just recently taken a new assistant strength coaching job at a Division 1 school about 800 miles from my last job and home. New location means longer hours, and no more semi-professional football. I need a NEW CHALLENGE! I want to train for something, and push hard for a new goals and begin to find another passion.
Olympic lifting is something as a coach that you need to be decently proficient at, but I'd like to see if I can work to competition level. I'd like to use this post as a log, message for all those competitors and heavily experience coaches to pass along any readings, advice, etc to help me begin the process over the next few months.
As previously stated my competition lifts are pretty crappy, as in strength and conditionin we tend to use the power and hang variations more than full catches.
Any help, advice, works of wisdom are greatly appreciated!
