I recently had the chance to attend a two-day weightlifting seminar hosted by a former World Champion weightlifter.
Each of the seminar days began with a short 30-45 minute lecture after which we proceeded to the hands-on section of the event.
Many ideas the host presented resonated with me because of their simplicity and similarity to my training philosophy that I try to pass on to my trainees.
Much of what I’m listing in this post and writing about on this blog in general is very basic stuff but in my experience, very little of that is typically applied in the modern gym setting, so let’s get down to the basics again.

Strength, especially in a sport like weightlifting, is a skill.
I know this ain’t a revolutionary thought by any stretch of imagination, but you’d be surprised by how many guys still don’t grok this concept.
