In this week's episode of Powering Performance, we are joined by Mike Gattone, High-Performance Director of USA Weightlifting. Tune in to hear about tools and tips from Mike strength coaches can incorporate for well-rounded training.
1. Mike speaks to how Olympic lifting fits into the Strength Coach tool box.
"A strength coach should be smart enough, intuitive enough, educated enough to take the best tools to make their athletes perform the best on the field, on the court, whatever that should be."
2. Mike shares his experience working with Al Vermeil and how it shaped his coaching career.
"I would always have my notebook when I went to his office, and I still write stuff down because thoughts will come to his mind about various drills or various exercises. It really was a great experience and I'm very thankful for that."
3. Mike provides some suggestions for Olympic lifts for athletes of any skill level.
"Overhead squat definitely is a big screen tool, in my opinion."
