This week on Weightlifting House Interviews we have one of my current favourite lifters, Wes Kitts. To watch, Wes is undeniably an amazing athlete with bags and bags of talent. But what I learned from reading his answers is how structured and methodical Wes is with his training... Not only in his and coach Dave Spitz' approach to personal records, but also in his approach towards international medals and meets.
This week on Weightlifting House Interviews we have rising young star Chris Murray. Chris has only been lifting for a few years and is already setting national youth records. His speed and tenacity is exciting to watch. I am very excited to introduce such an underground lifter to the weightlifting world.
Chris is an extremely talented young weightlifter and my pick for Britain's spot for the 2020 Olympics. After less than three years of training and weighing only 75kg his progress his been insane. It is the speed with which he is progressing that has led me to pick him as the one to watch from the UK and the most likely to take the spot and realise his Olympic dream. With that said, there are many lifters improving in the UK and he will have his work cut out for him.
Without further ado, here is the interview...
On this week's Weightlifting House Interviews we have the reigning USA 105 national champion D'Angelo Osorio! I spoke to D'Angelo before and after he won the senior national title about his training during the build up to his win, the improvement in USA weightlifting, and also his feelings after winning his first senior national title.
D’Angelo began weightlifting at a young age, competing in his first School Age Championships in 2008 where he earned a silver medal as a 77kg lifter. Over the last 9 years D’angelo has improved year by year, winning medals at Junior Nationals, Senior Nationals, a gold at the American open, and even a gold medal in the snatch at the Junior Pan Ams. D’Angelo has competed on several international teams, and up until recently held the Junior American Records for the clean and jerk and total in the 94kg class at 195kg and 350kg respectively.
Now a 105, D’Angelo has set his mark as the number one 105 in the country heading into the new quad. After years of competing, D’angelo is now the 2017 Senior National Champion, a title of which he is incredibly deserving. Check out his winning lifts and follow D'angelo at the social media links below.
I am extremely excited to announce that this week on Weightlifting House Interviews we have James Moser. I first started watching James when I began weightlifting and was so excited when I saw that he was back to lifting after an 8 year hiatus in the sport.
James' answers to some of my questions truly are some of the most thought provoking things I've ever read. Prepare to be inspired by the deep thoughts of James Moser. But first, a bit about him...
'...the moment I limit myself with a program and goals is the moment I stop realizing my potential...'
