Name: David O'Sullivan
Club: N/A
Weightclass: 105+kg
Recent Comp pbs: Not tested yet!
Goals for 09: To clean and jerk, snatch with near flawless technique and become efficient in correcting poor technique with athletes.

I just had a few sessions with Barry Vaughan in order to learn the correct techniques and have a bit of work to do still, especially with my flexebility!

Im a physio by trade and am confident in every other aspect of Strength and Conditioning except for the Olympic Lifts so I am trying to become efficient at these in order to correct my patients/athletes techniques and complete my accreditation for the UKSCA.

Ive learned alot already from this website and hope I can continue to learn from it.

Id also wouldnt mind been the physio for the 2012 Irish Olympic Weightlifting team either!!!!

Welcome to the forum David

I agree that the best way to be able to coach is to be able to perform and show by example how to perform the lifts with proper technique.

I am back to lifting less than 1 year and in an entirely different sense, I am completely new to lifting, as I learned in 1977 from a book ie pictures, with no coaching of any value, despite 2 1-week courses, and only now at age 47 almost have I taught myself to pull properly after qualifying as a coach in March 2008.

I hope to be able to keep perfecting the technique and imparting the knowledge along with my younger brother, teacher extraordinaire, Brendan in Strabane school very soon.

Tip - do an instructor course.

Sean
