  1. Just remember to have fun Russians and Americans have different approaches to coaching weightlifting. Part of it is cultural, and part of it stems from weightlifting being a professional sport in Russia, and mostly an amateur sport in the US. In the Russian approach, there is the glum reality that weightlifting is truly hard fucking work. Over the years, I’ve seen much less of this sort of attitude within the American weightlifting community. The Russian Coach. When Vasily Polovnikov started at the Norwood Training Center, he was coaching multiple groups of 6-8 people. He expected results from all of his athletes and used the coaching methods that were successfully used on him for many years in Russian training camps. Vasily was stern and demanding, which usually came off as angry and dickish. He had near- impossible demands for each and every one of his athletes and had a specific roadmap for them to follow to get to where every athlete wants to be – the top of the podium. Within a few months, his athletes started leaving his groups. All of his athletes wanted to be their best, but many of them tended to look at their weightlifting efforts as recreational. It was something they wanted to feel good about and look forward to in their daily lives. One time when I was at the gym, I mentioned to one of his lifters that his snatch had looked much better than it did a few weeks earlier. The guy’s face lit up with pride. He came up to me at the end of his workout and thanked me. He said that he’s never received a single compliment from Vasily and that it crushed him to see Vasily’s disappointed look on his face over and over again. mentioned this to Vasily, who responded, “Don’t they want to get better? What do they want me to do, hug and kiss them when they follow directions?” His larger-than-life stature and heavy Russian accent didn’t help him sound any gentler.
