In my teens, I built houses. To be accurate, I carried, cut, and hammered things. I was more a donkey than a craftsman.

Because of my curiosity, I asked to be a fly on the wall for every aspect of the process, from site selection, permit process, design of the house, material purchasing, logistics for delivery of the building materials, and the construction plan. It was fascinating to understand the process.

Before the drywall was hung and the finishing work started, the boss Ricky Voight would pull up a chair in the middle of the house, open a beer, and like a proud dad, gaze around and contemplate what had transpired over the past few months. I asked him once what he was thinking about, and he said, "So many things have to happen correctly to get to this point in a job. The finishing work is the reward for me for a job well done."

That sentiment resonates with me to this day. As I got older and began my path as an entrepreneur and coach, I found a strong correlation between finishing work on a house and leadership.

The finishing work is the next logical step after many well-thought-out and executed previous steps.

Good leaders are forged from experience. A leadership position culminates from accomplishments and successes, not ambition and hubris.

Good leaders don't need the title to build their resumes. They are well-established before they thrust themselves into a leadership position.

Being a leader is the finishing work of a life well lived.

The USA Weightlifting Board of Directors is voting soon on a new person to lead the organization.

There are two excellent candidates in Nick Maietta and Shameeka Quallo. They have two of the most impressive resumes I've seen and are practicing attorneys who only want to serve to help the organization.

They are not interested in using the position to thrust themselves into their next position with the IWF.

If the board members vote for the organization's best interest, the choices for the Chairmen are clear.

Otherwise, I don't know what their voting interest is.

MY OPINION ON USA WEIGHTLIFTING’S NEW CEO HIRE

USA Weightlifting has some significant challenges ahead.

The Board of Directors is tasked with coming up with solutions for these challenges.

The function of our Board is outlined in Section 6.2 of our bylaws.

1. Select, compensate, and evaluate the CEO and plan CEO succession;
2. Review and approve USAW’s strategic plan and the annual operating plans, budget, business plans, and corporate performance;
3. Set policy and provide guidance and strategic direction to management on significant issues facing USAW;
4. Review and approve significant corporate actions;
5. Oversee the financial reporting process, communications with stakeholders, and USAW’s legal and regulatory compliance program;
6. Oversee effective corporate governance;
7. Approve capital structure, financial strategies, borrowing commitments, and long-range financial planning;
8. Review and approve financial statements, annual reports, audit and control policies, and, upon the recommendation of the Audit Committee, select independent auditors;
9. Ensure that USAW’s assets are being properly protected;
10. Ensure USAW’s compliance with laws and regulations and the performance of its broader responsibilities;
11. Ensure that the Board and management are properly structured and prepared to act in case of an unforeseen corporate crisis; and
12. Appoint well-qualified individuals to committees where tasked to do so.
13. Ensure that athlete safety rules, policies, and procedures comply with the requirements of the USOPC and US Center for SafeSport
14. Ensure that athlete rights are respected and followed at all times.

In my opinion, we do not have a strong enough group of leaders to guard these directives and navigate us through the challenges ahead.

The Board is only the de facto leader of this organization. The true leaders are you, the voting members of this organization.

There will be three Board positions open to voting by the membership at the end of the year.

Choose wisely

If you missed my email from the other day, I'm bringing back some of my classic apparel designs: https://foreverfierce.com/products/waxmans-gym-april-2022-tee

Right now, we're starting with this one and I'll have more in the coming months.

Everything will ship directly to you.

As a reminder, I am not ordering extras and the link will close on 5/9.

Once the link closes, it takes about 2 weeks to get everything printed and shipped.

If you have any questions, let me know.

ATTENTION NATIONAL/INTERNATIONAL COACHES

You have received an email ballot to fill the Board position that I vacated on March 9th.

The position must get filled with the person best equipped to hold the rest of the Board of Directors accountable for following the organization's rules and policies.

That person is unequivocally Mario Dispenza.

Although Mario and I have not always seen eye to eye on everything, we have always been able to have a civil discussion around the issues.

I trust his judgment, and he will be an advocate for what's right under the rules or USA Weightlifting.

VOTE FOR MARIO

I created this program and tested it on dozens of athletes, so I know it works.

This 12-week cycle will make you more consistent and confident on the platform.

The first part of the cycle includes exercises designed to improve your pulling strength.

The second part of the cycle will get you BIG Sn**ch, C+J, and Squat PRs!

You will improve your skill and strength each week until you handle weights you never thought possible!

Art and Science⁠

Good coaches are gifted communicators, keen observers, and excellent problem solvers. ⁠

They have an innate ability based on observation to clearly identify the most effective methods for describing, teaching, and/or correcting desired movement patterns (technique) based on individual aptitude, learning styles, and talent levels. ⁠

Different athletes of similar talent may present varying external movement patterns due to the heterogeneity of our species. These observable patterns are the external manifestation of unobservable mechanical forces generated internally. ⁠

Because these internal forces are created by measurable quantities such as gravity and the mass of the barbell, they are consistent and predictable regardless of our physical differences. ⁠

One's approach and effectiveness as a coach will be determined by their ability to blend the art of communicating a desired external action with an understanding of the science behind the internal mechanisms that cause that action. ⁠

Any approach to coaching that disregards either one of these abilities is incomplete and short-sided.⁠

There seems to be a strong movement towards an "artful" approach to coaching and away from a scientific one.⁠

However, these two approaches should not be moving in opposite directions because they are not in opposition. ⁠

In fact, they are complementary, and both should be consistently developed throughout ones coaching career.⁠

It is dangerous to develop coaching methodologies based solely on what we can observe because observation without measurement is just a biased interpretation of inherent assumptions.

I’m excited to be back coaching at the High School level.

For Coaches who love the process of development, there is no better place to be than at a high school.

Well maybe a close second would be a coach for a communist country but that has some uncomfortable downsides.

Because I can no longer in good conscience, support the decisions being made by the leadership of the USA Weightlifting Board of Directors, I resigned from my position on March 9th.
Below is my letter of resignation

Happy Birthday Dr. Ken!

Organizing your entire life around a single principle is a recipe for instability.

Even if you manage to hang on for while, it is impossible to understand any virtue in the absence of context from practicing others. 

Love requires patience, or else it becomes volatile and fragile. Compassion requires humility, or else it cannot be genuinely expressed.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that toughness requires restraint. 

Rather than a constant, generalized state of aggression, it’s more about facing down my basic instincts. It’s about resisting visceral reactions and making hard choices that might fly in the face of everything I thought about myself. 

It’s about saying no to things and people that don't move my life in the direction I want it to go.

It’s about exercising the discipline to control my temper and staying away from bad decisions. 01/12/2022

THERE ALWAYS IS A COST TO WHAT YOU ARE PROGRAMMING⁠

✅ Physically⁠
✅ Neurogically⁠
✅ Metabolically⁠

STAR PLAYERS WILL ALWAYS BE GREAT NO MATTER WHAT⁠⁠
⁠⁠
That's something Sean Waxman got from legendary coach Al Vermail (head coach for the Chicago Bulls).⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The coach is not there to take credit for their stars players talent but to help them slow down the decline over the course of a game, a season and a carreer.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Not to say that the strength coach is not helping them get better, but talent is talent and you can't build that. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Make sure these exceptional athletes have all they need to succeed, for longevity and for injury prevention and that's the way you'll help them the best.⁠⁠

Waxman's Weightlifting Regional Team: Training by Sean Waxman in TrainHeroic 08/31/2021

🗣Coaches, please hear me when I say…
Basic barbell and weight training exercises performed correctly (between 3-12 repetitions and 60-90% intensity) should make up 80-90% of an athletes training outside of their sport practice.

🤡You can do all the banded, rehab flipity flops you want but NOTHING will have the physiological impact which barbel training creates. The other 10-20% of training should be spent on balancing out weak muscles groups with bodybuilding exercises.

(As a side note in my experience shoulders and the torso need special attention and the majority of the bodybuilding work will be on these areas)

Fix Your s**tty Weightlifting technique, stay injury free and lift more weight.
