BEAUFORT, S.C. The United States best hope for its first Olympic mens weightlifting medal in more than two decades rolls his rugged palms around a metal bar, small clumps of chalk falling to the rubbery platform below his feet. His legs serve as pillars as he explosively hoists more than 220 pounds over his head.

This being the final lift of his light workout, Clarence C.J. Cummings Jr. smiles broadly, and the gyms fluorescent lights reflect in his braces. At 5 feet 2 and 136 pounds, Cummings in many ways appears to be the blueprint of a lifter in his weight class: toned arms, ripped legs, textbook technique. Hes also 14 years old, which means every prototype anyone has conceived in the sport has been blown away.

Dennis Snethen, 54, a two-time U.S. Olympic coach and member of the USA Weightlifting Hall of Fame, said recently, In all my years Ive seen talented kids but nothing like C.J.

Price of the Platform

Keith wont keep a handgun in his bedroom. Not because hes worried his young children might find it. Hes scared that one rough morning, he might use it on himself. Keith (not his real name, all names have been changed) is a 49 year-old retired elite powerlifter. During his run he was one of the strongest human beings in the world, with a 980-pound squat, 700-pound bench, and 840-pound deadlift.

Mon Jul 07 2014 06:20 AM Interview: Powerlifting Coach Boris Sheiko by Eric

In 2008, after considerable time researching powerlifting, I started following templates written by Boris Sheiko for beginners.

I had heard a lot about Sheiko, but most of it was conjecture and speculation. I knew he had produced many champions, but I had heard his approach is impossibly difficult. But the more I researched strength training, the more I began to see the sense behind the little I had found online and through other lifters and coaches.

The results were profound and significant. Gradually I came to see how well thought-out and effective they were. He has undoubtedly been the most influential coach for me and until recently I had never even communicated with him until last year. I have been privileged to have been coached by him for the 2014 Australian nationals and Classic World Champs. This has been an incredible experience for me, both as a lifter and a person interesting in strength training systems.

Following the world champs coach Boris Sheiko has been kind enough to answer a few questions in interview form. Hopefully these questions and answers will shed more light on Sheiko and his coaching system. For more information please see his website at: http://sheiko-program.ru/

With respect to drug testing. Will have more to add to this later, such as the idiocy involving Wanderlei, etc.
