My athlete, Christine Na, just completed a very memorable 3 PR performance at the American Open Final in the 59 kg class. I thought that readers might find it helpful to read about the event from a coach’s perspective.
50 coaches have spent time at our gym, working with lifters of varied skill levels, learning how to start newcomers, how to identify problems, how to remediate them and how to keep lifting progress moving beyond the beginner stage.
This conversation is an ongoing one among many less sophisticated lifters, but an event such as a change in bodyweight classes raises the level of concern and involvement. Right now I’m hearing conversations of real concern over what the new bodyweight class limits will be.
