Olympic Coach Harvey Newton recently was asked to contribute an article to the USOC’s August Team USA Coaching Newsletter. "USA Weightlifting asked elite coaches to contribute content applicable to Olympic Family coaches and athletes. This is what I do on a regular basis, so pulling this piece together was easy," Newton said.
He continued, "Proper strength training involves a number of variables. I always find it worthwhile to educate coaches on proper terminology so as to get everyone on the same page. But the article’s bottom line is to encourage, where appropriate, coaches to consider the use of weightlifting training for non-lifter athletes."
