Michael Hartman and I have a mission: To inspire 10,000 NEW lifters to hop onto the platform in 2012. To do that – a project that sounds crazy if you realize there are only 6,000 registered members of USA Weightlifting right now – we’ve got a massive series of new kick-ass stuff coming down the pipe.
The first of those thangs is out TODAY: The Weightlifting Academy Podcast. There’s both a vidcast AND an audio podcast version.
It’s basically a fun, relaxed talk-show between Michael and I where we can really help spread the word about the sport, interview people both IN and OUT of the sport and bring this stuff to people who would likely find it awesome, but just don’t know anything about it yet.
We were ALL there at some point (I talk about my own start in this first episode) – I didn’t even know the difference between a Snatch and a Clean!
In order to reach our goal, we’ll need YOUR help. You already know about this stuff, and love it like we do. You’re the perfect ambassador for weightlifting. Over time we’ll let you know more and more about what you can do to help us out.
For now, go over to Weightlifting Academy to check out the first episode of our new show!!
And PLEASE leave us questions and comments so that we can incorporate them into the next episode. Just like my Samurai Strength series, the whole point is to help you become better at weightlifting, help new people get started, and spread the word to as many people as we can.
2012 is gonna be a BIG year, I promise you that.
