IWF Club Coach Manual

During the IWF Congress held in Antalya, Turkey the First Level of the Club Coach Manual was presented to the attendees. As an aid to coaches and athletes it describes and lists weightlifting training methods, shows the methodology of preparation and discusses about medical, anti-doping and nutritional issues.
At the initiative of the IWF Coaching & Research Committee the Manual was written by our highly estimated colleagues Mr. Kyle Pierce (USA), Mr. Lyn Jones (AUS) and Mr. Michael Keelan (AUS). The Chairman of the Coaching & Research Committee as well as the members contributed to the achievement of this Manual that is planned to be translated in several languages.

The Committee already started to work on the Second Level while the preparation of a DVD that will complement the First edition is already under production.
