Pierre Roy – Teaching Weightlifting at AAS Certification


Hi My name is Pierre Roy. I’m a weightlifting coach. I’m doing this kind of, I have this expertise for the last 40 years. I made the Olympics one time, coming off an American. I get Olympic winners, that’s long time before. It takes time to find a good replacement to reach that level. So sometimes you can get a high, the very high level at least only once in your life. Today I am at the Laylor to teach weightlifting which is my expertise, my greatest expertise. I got expertise too in training method, systematic, systematic training method, prioritisation and so on. This is sometimes complicated to teach it because it takes time to learn, takes time to assimilate and then to transfer it to your home at least. But I hope today in this course you will learn enough to grow and become a better coach. So thank you and good day. The bar must touch all the way. Okay. I can tell you see. And from this point I can break the stick. This is the point, I have to find this position, the best at least. When they reach this point, the bar disappears in the hips. Okay. With the technique I teach, you cannot be the bar because the bodies integrate, okay. We work on integration of the bar in your body to make one unity. Unify yourself with the load. Okay, let’s go. Yes, back. Okay, integrate, but keep it straight. You can cheat with your trapezius. The force applied to the bar is equal to the one you impose to the floor. so don’t try to pull it. Use your head and use the floor. Okay. Don’t carry, don’t pull, just throw it, use your hips, use the floor. Okay. You want to lift heavy weights, don’t use your arms. There’s no strength in the arms, believe me. You cannot compare your arms with your hips and your legs. So use the strong muscles, don’t use the weak one. Okay?
