(Getting coached on my squat by the legendary Powerlifter, Ed Coan)

No one wants to get “no repped”in a meet or on a test; solid technique will solve that problem.

Isn’t there more to having good technique than that?

Why do coaches constantly stress technique anyhow?

First, let me clarify that, good coaches do and  lousy coaches don’t.

Good technique will definitely help you get stronger and help prevent injuries.

Here’s a few reasons why:

  • improved structural integrity
  • full range of motion is achieved
  • coordination is enhanced
  • speed increases
  • better mind/body connection
  • more effective use of available energy
  • body control/stability gets better

Excellent technique coupled with smart programming will help both the seasoned strength athlete and the novice lifter get better overall.
