Making Weightlifting Fun for Kids with Elizabeth Oehler – The Barbell Life 347

If you know me, you know youth development is at the core of who I am.

And it drives me crazy when people tell me that no child should ever touch a barbell.

So I’m joined on this podcast today by Elizabeth Oehler, a German weightlifting coach who is an expert on training young athletes.

Not only is she just as passionate as I am about why it’s important – she’s got some great insight on how to do it properly. (Hint: listen in to see how she makes it fun for the kids.)
