    Thanks Kevin! The athlete shown, is really incredible but he was taught with the same method I teach every kid. The interesting part is finding out what turns the switch in each kid.

  3. Excellent work Wil and Ben. Form is so critical when you talk about the power that is being generated through the body on moves like this.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for spreading the word on good form.

    That being said, I feel that so much time is used up in teaching o lifts. I have my young athletes on the average twice a week in a small group setting. I find it easier and more time effective to use deadlifting as the tool for explosiveness.

    My athletes and I dare say an overwhelming majority would be best served with IYCA focusing on more deadlifting, bodyweight training and kettlebells.

    In my network of professionals, the norm is not the 1 to 1 ratio which I feel would the yield the best outcome for O lifts but team and small group dynamics.

    Thanks,

    Coach Ramon

    Great job guys. This is a little off the subject but wanted to let you know. With the knowledge I have gained from the IYCA and puting it to use, I have been given the opportunity to do a series of TV clips on the local news discussing childhood obesity and how to keep your children healthy.

    Thanks Brian

    Ramon… From the start, we have always maintained that it is about the receipe not the chef. The IYCA’s role, as we see it, is to provide education and knowledge. We are very clear in our Youth Fitness Specialist – Level 1 course material —> The IYCA stands for CONCEPT. So long as Coaches and Trainers are enlisting the CONCEPTS of IYCA methodologies, the decision on how to implement those methodologies are best left to the Coaches and Trainers in question. Athlete numbers, coaching perferences, equipment and a variety of other factors contribute to how or why a given Coach would opt for one technique or philosophy of training over another. Olympic Lifts fit into the IYCA Principles. So do Power Lifts, Kettlebells and bodyweight work. It ALL can fit…. So long as it’s taught correctly and follows our concepts for long-term improvements. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge here with us. Will…. MANY CONGRATS, MY FRIEND!!! Awesome work. Email us some of yoru TV clips?? BG

    Coach Ramon-

    I am with Brian on the fact that the recipe is the important factor. The recipe in the video above and on previous posts allows coaches to teach the O lifts to large groups. I think O lifts are very important, and have been able to teach groups as large as 20 individuals proper technique in a very short amount of time. Please let me know if you have any questions or want any help in putting together an effective and simple teaching method for the Olympic lifts.
