USA Weightlifting coaches Greg Everett & Ursula Garza address audience questions on weightlifting technique, program design, competition and more.
How to modulate intensity, volume and exercise selection within a week, how to count volume, and how to make the most out of training remotely with a coach.
Looping bar path in the snatch, fear of heavy cleans, gym/team ethics and poaching, what to put in a training journal
Proportions and how they influence potential as a lifter; choosing a weight class based on height; what to do if you power all of your snatches; bar rattling with contact and timing in the lifts.
Where should the elbows be pointed (and how should the shoulders be positioned) in the start and pull of the snatch and clean; how do you warm up to text max snatch and clean & jerk; and what are the differences and uses for the 4 snatch balance variations.
How much mobility do you really need for weightlifting, and is more a problem? Instability and lack of control snatching from the floor relative to hang; should you receive your lifts as low as possible? How to gain some weight for skinny people.
How to fix the hips rising faster than the shoulders in the squat, why you slide backward in the push press and how to fix it, Ursula wants to know about Greg's rehab after shoulder dislocation and supra/labrum tear, and what the power position is and why it matters.
The ONLY Helpful Weightlifting Podcast Available Anywhere
I’ve been searching everywhere for a good weightlifting instructional-type podcast. I’ve concluded that Greg and Ursula‘s is the only one that consistently teaches skills with a great level of detail. I am amazed at how helpful their (often times hilarious) dialogue is which is amazing given that there are no visuals - so their explanations are super precise and on point. I am very grateful that this podcast exists. (By the way, when I do have time to sit and watch visual content, Greg’s Catalyst YouTube channel is my go-to. It’s easily the very best-bar none.)
One of my favorites
I love listening to Greg and Ursula banter but also I’ve learned a tremendous amount from both of them. I’ve purchased Greg’s programs in the past and have followed Catalyst weightlifting for quite some time and these two know their stuff. One of my favorite podcasts!
Don’t change a thing! Except maybe releasing them more often. Not often enough that Greg can’t complain about Ursula’s schedule though.
