The Old School Mentality.
This week we welcome athlete, author, and Catalyst Athletics coach, Greg Everett. This well known figure in the world of strength and conditioning believes that Olympic Weightlifting has changed dramatically – to the benefit of popularity but the detriment of old school ethics. As someone who evolved into the sport well before social media, Greg waxes nostalgic on his past experience of embracing Weightlifting as lifestyle instead of an accessory.
From the garage of Mike Burgener to his own beautiful facility, Greg talks about how he has changed with the sport to make opportunities for himself. Although not every aspect of the business is pleasurable, he is steadfast in his training principles and unapologetically opinionated. Discover why he thinks so many athletes get caught up in the trap of training like the most elite athletes in the world and why it’s not only sub optimal, it can also be counterproductive.
John and Greg catch up on all things Olympic Weightlifting and unravel the mysteries of the internet all in an hour’s time. This is episode 127.
