On this episode of the Doc and Jock Podcast we talk to Kirksman Teo. Kirksman is an olympic lifting coach based out of Malaysia and has some really unique perspectives on the Asian lifting style.
He's spent time training with the Chinese coaches in China and feels the movement of the olympic lifts should be prioritized over anything else. I love the reference of adding a turbo charger verses switching out an engine to a V8. He feels bigger numbers on the squat/press and other accessory training lifts are not as important as becoming more efficient at the subtleties of the two olympic lifts.
Here are some links to things we cover in the podcast.
