Weightlifting Coach, Sydney
Performing weightlifting movements such as the snatch and clean and jerk are technical lifts that require focus and commitment. Following a weightlifting program will guide you towards achieving your goals. And, having a weightlifting coach who is committed to seeing you improve will take your lifts to the next level.
What Is Weightlifting?
Weightlifting, also known as Olympic weightlifting, is the sport of lifting a maximum weight for one repetition. The two main weightlifting exercises are the snatch and clean and jerk. This sport not only requires raw strength to power those moves but also coordination, balance and flexibility.
Why Do You Need a Weightlifting Coach?
A weightlifting coach can help:
- Improve technical aspects of your lifts — so you’re more efficient in your movement.
- Customise a program for you and help you peak for specific weightlifting competitions.
- Implement weightlifting exercises to supplement a program you’re already on.
- Improve strength and power in your chosen sport.
- Guide you through the process with like-minded athletes.
- Drive your fitness community.
- Keep you accountable and motivated.
Can weightlifing training improve my performance in other sports?
A stronger athlete is a more resilient one, and a more powerful athlete can perform sport-related tasks faster.
Weightlifting exercises require an athlete to move a loaded barbell rapidly. The longer an athlete is exposed to this type of training, the more potential they have at improving their muscle rate of force development.
Having a weight training coach who understands how to implement a training program in conjunction with different sports and athletic seasons, will help optimise performance and improve overall athleticism through strength and power means.
