Daniel Camargo  U.S. Senior International Coach, USAW

I've said before that athletes must take responsibility and accountability of their own careers. Coaches are very important and are tasked with developing the athlete but we can only take athletes so far. At a certain point the athlete must become more self-aware and less coach-dependent. That is not to say disloyal. Not at all. What I mean is self-reliant and confident in their needs. All pros have this skill. I was recently asked if this is something I teach and the answer is yes. I encourage independence for two reasons: (1) It is this very awareness I will need to coach them further at their higher levels. Their certainty, feedback, and the insight is vital to me after the basic cues & corrections don't work anymore, like when they were beginners. And (2) perhaps this attribute becomes a life skill they can carry with them far beyond the platform.

#fbf to that time I finally realized what proper rest & recovery can do for you! And to a time when VHS was the only form of recording, so excuse the quality here: 1997, age 19, 170kg/375lbs, body weight 82kg, for the win and spot back on the Jr. World Team, with a PR I had only done once two weeks prior that was awful. During competition phase of training and test week this load demolished me. A sloppy lift that would have been a "no-lift" in competition. Because of this I had hoped not to attempt it on this day but was forced to based on other competitors' pushing me to. The difference between an ugly, struggling lift two weeks prior and this clutch lift? Recovery! My coaches forced me to back off and I listened. The training didn't fail me when I needed it most. Thank goodness for good coaching. I credit them for much of my career. If you haven't done so lately, thank your coach.

Can't beat a weekend teaching a Cert @athleteinc_ in Oklahoma City and getting the chance to squeeze in face time with satellite athletes. Thank you for letting me coach and hosting the large turnout. @usa_weightlifting @brittany_chelsea @elizabethtle #certification #barbell #teaching #satelliteathletes #coachingcourse #snatch #clean #jerk #progressions #olylifting #safety #equipment #cues #corrections

When you get so excited for your athlete you become violent. I swear I didn't mean to!

Coach's Quiz (it's been a while): If there's an aspect of a competition lift you aren't happy with, isolate it! There are multiple uses for this drill, what are they and which one was I focusing on today? Hint: I had to perform them at loads above 87% to be effective. Warning: Swipe for the answer. #nohashtaganswersthistime #manthesegotheavyrealquick #blocks #mastersworlds #masterspreparation #barcelona #7weeksaway #kneesdontfailmenow #shoulderdontfailmenow #olyconcepts #tutorial #olylifting #olyconcepts #clean #snatch #clean @usa_weightlifting @olyconcepts @thepraelium @bridgebuilt @athleteps @romwod

A sound bite from one of my favorite parts of the conversation. Thank you @cherylahaworth and @olychad for the opportunity to talk shop. We coaches, and athletes, appreciate what your doing for the community!
