Meanwhile in the in Powerlifting land …
Here’s an Interview with Dietmar Wolf, who is the coach of the Norwegian Powerlifting team.
This interview was recorded when his athlete Carl Yngvar Christensen set a new single ply world record at the 2014 IPF World Championships.
What’s interesting about the “Norwegian System” is the high frequency training they use.
Dietmar, who has a background in weightlifting, was inspired by the high training frequency of weightlifters. So he started to develop a program for powerlifters that lets them squat 4-6x, bench, 5-7x and deadlift 5-6x in a week (using different variations of of the main exercises).
Interview with senior Christensen, WADA worker, would be much more informative.
With a name like that, i am not sure if he is a native Norwegian speaker, but his English is classic Norwenglish. *cringe*
He’s actually from Germany.
He is perfectly understandable and his “Norwenglish” doesn’t stop him from being one of the best powerlifting coaches in the world. Last I checked, they don’t test your English knowledge at the bottom of a heavy squat. Might become a crazy wod for all those cross-twitters out there, come to think of it.
Since you are so defensive, i will be so as well..
I never said he is not understandable, I was merely making a comment on his accent and the fact that i think i can recognize it..
I never said it stops him from doing anything. I am perfectly aware of his accomplishments as a coach. Most people interested in the sport of Powerlifting are.
I literally said none of the things you are commenting on. Do I look like i am made of straw?
Jake W says
did you seriously just disparage his english with a “cringe?” wow, that’s rather obnoxious.
You misunderstand. His English is perfectly understandable, and better than most people i know at that age. It is the fact that it is so easy to recognize his norwegian(and possibly german) accent, because it means i probably sound like that as well.
