Anatoly Kharpati was amazing in the 1988 Olympic Games. His televised athlete profile sparked an interest in kettlebells and it wasn't until the better part of 20 years later that I finally owned one myself.
I didn't realize that he had passed. He's one athlete I'll never forget.
I believe this video was uploaded by liftup, a great Olympic Weightlifting website. Thank you to them for making it available for public viewing.
After seeing, literally, hundreds of people struggling (sometimes unknowingly) with squat form, I decided to create the Squat Rx instructional videos on squat form and training. This blog is meant to be a platform for those videos, and a place of discussion about strength and conditioning issues for coaches, trainers, teachers, athletes, students, and enthusiasts. Posts and articles are meant to provoke thought, inspiration, and reflection.
My athletic background is in gymnastics, Tae Kwon Do, competitive swimming, powerlifting, and kettlebells. I have coached swimming at the age-group, high school, D3, and masters levels, served as a S&C coach at the high school level, and conducted kettlebell workshops and classes for CrossFit, high school students, and personal trainers.
Please leave a comment or a question. Good Squatting!
