Sergei Putsov marries ability, knowledge, and passion better than most.
Having survived the Ukranian weightlifting system in its entirety, building up to top lifts of 160/200, Sergei has a unique view into the system that developed Olympic champions, such as his friend and business partner, Oleksiy Torokhtiy.
Teaching seminars all over the world, Sergei also has an interesting perspective on the different styles of teaching the sport, including the various shortcomings he has seen around the globe.
After his athletic career, Sergei undertook his PhD to learn more about exercise physiology, specialising in the training differences between men and women in the sport of weightlifting.
