#CoachesOnly Virtual Conference
20th March 2022

"C|O may be the most valuable opportunity a weightlifting coach has to improve"
Wil Fleming
1Kilo Weightlifting


After three successful events in 2021, #CoachesOnly is back for a special one-day conference. This time we are taking a look at international weightlifting systems to see what we can learn and reveal some of their secrets. 

The day will consist of four sessions with fantastic speakers, followed by a round-table discussion featuring some very special guests. 

Recordings of all four sessions and the round table conversations will be made available to ticket holders for one week after the events


Max Aita

What can we learn from the Bulgarian system?

After learning from strength coaching legends Ivan Abadjiev and Boris Sheiko, Max has gone on to produce multiple champions and five senior American record holders. 

In his session, Max will be drawing on his experience of the reality of the Bulgarian system to separate the myths from what we can learn that can be applied to modern, clean lifters.

David Kurch

Inside the German Technical Model

German national coach David Kurch and his distinctive beard are a common sight at international competitions. Under his guidance, German lifters such as Max Lang, Nico Müller, Sabine Kusterer and Lisa Schweizer have shown consistently good technique. 

David will talk us through the German technical model and how they develop the technique of their athletes. 

Ciro Ibanez

Learning from Four Systems

A career as a weightlifter in Cuba led Ciro inter a coaching career that has spanned Spain, France and Canada. So far, he has coached eight European and four World Champions.

Ciro will tell us about what he has learned through working with so many talented athletes across two continents and how he is now applying those ideas to create the next generation of champions.

Eduards Andruškevičs

Latvian Weightlifting

When his developing career (175kg snatch, 215kg clean and jerk) ended due to injury, Eduards turned to coaching. He has since worked with two-time Olympic medalist Viktors Ščerbatihs, Artūrs Plēsnieks, Rebekah Koha, Ritvars Suharev and many other Latvian athletes. 

Eduards will share his experience of coaching athletes in Latvia and, more recently Saudia Arabia as well. 

Round Table Speakers

Emily Muskett

International Medalist and BWL Talent Lead


Josh Gibson

Clintonville Barbell Coach


Lizzie Havers

Lakeside Weightlifting Head Coach


On the day, each speaker will deliver an uninterrupted online lecture via ZOOM for 40 minutes, followed by 20 minutes of Q&A from you, mediated by Seb. 

The  day will finish with a free-form round table with multiple speakers.

You will be granted access to the speakers’ slides and recordings for one week after the event, and for some sessions you can send your questions in advance to kody@weightliftinghouse.com.

What People Say About #CoachesOnly

“The Coaches Only event is not just a perfect way to allow developing coaches - which we should all strive to be indefinitely - access to the insights and experience of successful coaches, but for those experienced coaches to connect with others and continue their own improvement"​
Greg Evertt
Catalyst Athletics
"The first Coaches Only seminar exceeded my expectations in every way. The challenges of doing a virtual coaching seminar as well as getting experts on board to produce information that isn’t already readily available is immense. Weightlifting House accomplished this task and more. I was shocked at how much I was able to immediately apply to my own coaching."
Spencer Arnold
Power and Grace Performance

Why Coaches Only?

After hundreds of interviews with coaches it has become apparent that there is a need for a community for weightlifting coaches to come to learn together, where we can have much deeper, more practical, more cutting edge conversations. Areas can then be addressed which can’t be reached during a podcast. By giving the speakers several months to prepare these highly targeted presentations aimed specifically at coaches, the quality of information is unlike anything else we’ve ever seen in weightlifting.
