Matt Foreman | Editorial | June 29 2015 | Comments (1)

I’m on Facebook quite a bit, and I’m friends with hundreds of weightlifters. This means a lot of lifting videos pop up on my home page every day. People post videos of the big lifts they do in competition, or the gym, etc. Many of you are on FB or Instagram, so you probably see plenty of these too, right?   I like watching them, even if they’re not from big national or int......

Weightlifting Technique Problems: When You’ve Tried Everything & Nothing Works
Matt Foreman | Editorial | March 16 2015 | Comments

One of the fun things about working in a high school is going to other classrooms and seeing the stuff teachers put on their walls. You're almost guaranteed to see a lot of posters with motivational slogans on them. Teachers want kids to feel pumped up about life, so they plaster their rooms with positive little messages.    There's one inspirational quote I've seen a million times. Yo...... Continue reading

I thought I’d try to collect some of the podcast interviews I’ve done for convenience. Now you can keep yourself occupied while driving to work... or at work.

For the most part, the reaction among weightlifters to the new USAW national meet qualification procedures has been positive, but there has been a surprising (to me, at least) amount of objection. I want to just address a few examples of these objections directly rather than trying to compose something entirely. The following chunks in quotations were pulled off of various FB posts.

This past weekend, Catalyst Athletics took 10 lifters to the National Championships in Salt Lake City. It was a long weekend, but it was a well-run meet in a great venue. Jes Liao (48 kg) and Blake Barnes (69 kg) were our first lifters on Friday. Both lifters have had a rough past couple months with training. Jes in the last couple months has slept at home only a handful of nights and only tr...... Continue reading

When I was in the 8th grade, my guidance counselor pulled me out of class one day and took me to his office to perform an exorcism on me. You think I’m kidding? Nope. Here’s how it all happened… I was a terrible kid when I was in junior high. I was disrespectful, mouthy, rude, and a huge troublemaker. My teachers openly hated me. Most of them actually told me that. How...... Continue reading
