Many of the Weightlifter’s rewards aren’t found inside the walls of a gym. The greatest thrills and discoveries happen out on the competition platform.

On this episode, we share the qualities you should look for in a great coach, and how they can help you reach your full strength. Also, we’ll show you exactly what it’s going to take to raise your weightlifting game up to the competitive level.

Get ready to earn the title of Weightlifter. This is The Weightlifters Journey, part 4.

We hope you enjoy the show. Please share this series with any friends with an interest in training. The more we spread the message of Weightlifting, the brighter the future will be.
