Training of a weightlifter: A scientific approach
This case study reports the monitoring and training process of an international refugee weightlifter (ranked No. 1 in GB at the 96 and 102Kg weight class) over a 30-week period, from November 2018 to June 2019. To date, evidenced based case studies on weightlifters have typically utilized and presented results from standardized lab tests with little consideration of objective technical analysis. The purpose of this applied case study is to provide training and monitoring insights into how an amalgamation of objective physical and technical monitoring can aid the process of weightlifting programming and thus enhance the likelihood of success.
