American Open 2015

Day 1 is over, and session 1 of Day 2 is complete. I have one session off, so I just wanted to write a few words mainly to let my heart shine. All of my athletes have performed brilliantly. We are two silver medals and one bronze medal to the good so far, and many personal records. These performances are uncommon because a lot of people have trouble at big National Meets, but the Mash Mafia Weightlifting Team is rising to the occasion.

I want to say first how blessed I am to partner with my friends at Undisputed Strength & Conditioning in Eagan, MN also known as Mash Mafia MN. Jason and Vinh are amazing coaches, and are no less than family in my books. They are the best meet coaches that I could ever dream of having for the team. I am so excited about our future.

FYI be on the outlook for our new clothing line. We are about to release some pics of our samples, and we are confident that we are going to change the industry.

Guys, relationships are the key for anything successful in the barbell world. If you sincerely care about other people, you will do well. I have made so many quality friends in this industry: Barbell Shrugged, Caffeine & Kilos, Juggernaut, Catalyst Athletics and so many more. These meets are so amazing. I coach my awesome team, and hang out with my incredible friends. I don’t know how I could ever do anything else with so much passion.

Here are a few tips to all of you that are coaching or competing in future National Meets:

1. Whatever you think is a safe opener, I suggest subtracting 3-5 kilos from that. I just witnessed 8 bomb outs in one session on one platform. It’s not worth it at all. Make bigger jumps.

2. Learn to have fun at meets. Remember you are in a big room full of people that love lifting weights just like you. You are blessed to lift the weights in front of people that love lifting weights as well. There is no reason to be nervous just have a blast.

3. Coaches, your demeanor is so important. If you are uptight, your lifter will be uptight. If you are relaxed and positive, then your lifters will crush it.

4. Coaches, study the game! I have watched so many mistakes this weekend. I watched someone point at the wrong card, and therefore changed the lift of the wrong person. I have watched lifters miss their opener, and then the coach takes them up ever more only to bomb out. Get with coaches that have been there and learn from them.

5. Limit the sensory overload! Technique coaching should be completed before the meet. At the meet you are just there to encourage, manage, and handle. I have watched coaches giving over five verbal cues to their lifters right before going on the platform. Too much! Keep it simple.

Anyway I am so excited, but I still wanted to take a second and hopefully drop some tips to all of you. It is almost time to coach Rabbit! Let’s Go!!!
