The Olympic lifting Athlete

So you’ve been training the olympic lifts for a while but your progress has stalled? Sound familiar? Enter Jedi Sean Waxman of Waxman’s Gym [@WaxmansGym]. Having coached numerous national competitors over his 25 year career, he knows the science behind successful lifters. What you may not expect is his belief that aerobic work in the form of sport can give an Oly athlete the edge. When periodized appropriately, how exactly does this translate to more power and efficiency.

In this episode Sean Waxman and The Crew discuss the overlap of sport and Olympic Lifting down to muscle fiber. Waxman generously gives an overview of how he programs microcycles leading up to a competition. Fascinating discussion on the potentially positive role fatigue has on performance and what it means to train to improve your average maximum force versus your absolute maximum force.


Now it’s time for you to empower your performance. Please forgive the abrupt end to this episode as we mistakenly cut the recording short. I assure you didn’t miss any significant goodies.
