Dan Wagman, the 2012 IAWA World Championships’ OVERALL BEST LIFTER, has video recorded the Championships and has made this video available to everyone. But first let me say a few things about Dan. I met Dan several years ago when he lived in Lawrence, Kansas getting his PhD from the University of Kansas. At that time he came to my place to train a few times. He has competed in the USAWA before, but it has been a few years (2006 Nationals), so he is no newcomer to All Round Weightlifting. Dan has a VERY DEEP RESUME of lifting accomplishments. It would take several pages to give an overview of everything he has achieved. For those that don’t know this – Dan is the Publisher/Editor in Chief of the Journal of Pure Power. It is a MUST READ for all strength athletes. It is an online magazine that covers the scientific knowledge of weightlifting and sports training. It gives just the FACTS that have been proven in research – not opinions and general ideas like most all other magazines. Dan’s journalistic efforts have been published in several other magazines throughout the years.
I recommend that everyone “check out” the trial issue of Pure Power. I am sure that you will be impressed. I also recommend that you get a subscription so that you will be “up to date” on all the latest strength research. It is one of the few magazines worth reading now a days. Details of this are contained within this link to the videos from the World Championships.
