Some injuries are just unavoidable.

I have worked with many athletes and helped them to train through injuries in order to prepare them for upcoming competitions. With the proper knowledge of the injury and an educated program design, athletes can make overall performance gains and see improvements to the injury itself.

We’ve all done it—missed a snatch behind and reassured ourselves by saying a miss behind is better than a miss in front. I would agree that in some cases this is true, but definitely not always, and the causes of a miss behind need to be identified and corrected just like any other miss....

Peer pressure is real. You will turn into the five people that you spend the most time with. If you have certain goals that you want to accomplish, then you need to surround yourself with people who possess traits that will help you reach those goals. Whether your goals are in weightlifting or...
