SM004 - Olympic Lifting in a Globo Gym
Nov 12 13
Due to the American male obsession with chesticles, it'd be tough to find a gym without a weight bench or at least a Hammer Strength "Chest Press." But for almost any strength sport - Olympic lifting, powerlifting, strongman - you're going to need some specialized equipment that's much harder to find. We've even heard from CrossFitters whose box has everything they need, but not enough open gym time for them to practice their lifting technique.
So today on the podcast, we're joined by Josh Bowen and Jon Cooper who explain how they've managed to train for competitive Olympic weightlifting in a commercial gym (a Gold's to be exact). From bringing in their own equipment to makeshift setups, we're getting the full story on how they've made it work.
