    Ep. 241: Coaching at Three Olympic Games | Jim Schmitz

    Ep. 241: Coaching at Three Olympic Games | Jim Schmitz

    Jim Schmitz is a bit of an unknown legend in the sport. You won't generally hear his name casually tossed around in conversations about the sport, but that shouldn't be the case. Jim has an unmatched track record and more time in the sport than nearly any other person in USAW.

    Professionally, he's coached at three Olympic games, including coaching silver medalist, Mario Martinez. The list of achievements goes on and on, but the most impressive part of his resume is his continued involvement in the sport. He first found weightlifting in 1964 and hasn't turned back since.

    In this episode, we talk all about Jim and his background in the sport. It's one you don't want to miss.

PW potentiates my brain one episode at a time 😀

Essential listening

The most thoughtful and far-ranging podcast for Olympic weightlifting. Interviews are insightful and don’t let the philosophical throw you. There is great practical and training info in every show.

Heavily caffeinated lifter ,

Distilling Complex Information Into Bite Sized Pieces

Josh consistently distills complex information down into bite sized pieces and marrying up theory with practice. Huge fan of his work. Keep it up!
