Craig Richey on What Makes a Good Weightlifter: “Fear is the mind killer”

March 1, 2022 by

Craig Richey said the art of lifting heavy is all in the details.

“I think all great weightlifters firstly have built savage levels of baseline strength and developed a severe capacity to hold positions, they are a real tactician in the way they move,” said the British YouTuber. “Everything needs to be purposeful, our sport is really just physics and millimeters and centimeters in the lift make such a difference at different stages, one centimeter out of line in the pull may as well be a mile.That barbell is constantly trying to get you out of shape so we are working always on positional strength.”
