How to measure the Improvement of beginning Weightlifters….

Well it’s been a year or two with your lifters and you want to know how well is he/she doing…The lifter has competed locally and you both are looking to go no Nationals. What would be the best way way to measure the improvement of the lifter? compare their results with national results of their corresponding age group and weight class? That would be a good way to see their potential ranking but has the lifter improved properly?

At Risto Sports we use this chart based on the Soviet System with adjustments for Cuban athletes. These charts are for lifters that only train Weightlifting as their Sport of choice, however it’s amazing to see that our beginners reach (and surpass) these yearly goals up to the second or third year. After that our lifters have more obligations than a full time lifter/resident of an Olympic training center (school, summer jobs, going to college, etc).

I have found helpful that I can use these charts a;so with lifters switching from the CrossFit world and a lot of them can or have improved in a similat way or ever have passed these yearly goals and that is due to the fact that  alot of CrossFitters come from other sports and they bring what’s called INVISIBLE LOAD and can adapt to the new sport easily…
