    What Is The International Weightlifting Federation Doing??

    Look. Most of the time I have no idea what I’m doing.. i just fly by the seat of my pants. But I do expect a lot better from large organisations that are meant to be taking care of the sports we love.

    We had 11 minutes prior to coaching to record a mini podcast episode but we did this instead.

One of my favourite podcasts...

...hands down.
Not your standard fitness podcast and far from just cleans, jerks and snatches. Andy delves deep into the world of weightlifting, from tips and tricks to the questions others don’t ask, he’ll make you feel as though you’re right there in the conversation.
Fun, funny, informative, intriguing and highly recommended!
