Mike’s Comment:

Mike says  “the training required for Olympic style lifting is the finest conditioning for explosive strength that most certainly provides the best foundation for athletic performance as well as being a great sport in its own right”.

Mike’s Coaching Philosophy:

“I take an educative view that athletes should understand the principles and reasons for the technical movement patterns that are taught by the coach. A coach should always be able to justify the methodology of the exercise regime and the criteria for the training program being applied.”
