1.) Around what age should athletes begin to train as weightlifters?
I started my children Casey, Beau, Cody, and Sage at very young ages-8 or 9.
3.) Do you recommend that young athletes pursue other sport interests while competing in weightlifting, and if so, how do you determine whether and when they should begin to focus solely on weightlifting?
8.) Often we hear of coaches promoting one of two training philosophies, Bulgarian and Russian, while others prefer to modify those training methods or create their own. How would you describe your approach to training weightlifters?
As Steve Gough has coined: Americanized Bulgarian. Snatch, clean and jerk, and squat - as heavy as can be tolerated and recovered. I do work weaknesses depending on the athlete and the weaknesses that they have.
11.) How important is it to modify training based on individual weightlifters?
