How to Target and Train Your Weaknesses W/ Mike Burgener – Episode 256


It wasn’t that long ago that we didn’t have iPhones in our pockets, let alone access to the world’s information at the click of a button. Back in the day, coaches and athletes had to figure shit out on their own. 

Nowadays, the fitness industry is growing faster than ever, and with that comes new innovations and knowledge around training. That is mainly due to the fact that coaches and athletes are communicating and sharing their experience more and more.

We wanted to hear from one of the top coaches in the game on this topic, so we headed over to Bonsall, CA to visit Mike Burgener. Coach B has watched this evolution occur and has been apart of some of the biggest evolutions in the sport of weightlifting and strength training.

In this episode, Coach B shares his insights into the fitness industry as it is today, and tells stories of what it was like in the beginning. We talk about why most athletes, who want to go from pretty good to competitive, need to start focusing on training their weaknesses. Mike shares tactics and his philosophy around getting strong, the coaches that he works with, and how he gets his athletes to the next level.

If you want to learn how to break through your plateaus and start understanding how to train your weaknesses, you need to drop in for this one.


enjoy the show,

    Just heard the comment about parents going to weightlifting competitions. I am now 43 years old. I started CrossFit at age 39 (now age 43) and have started focusing more on Olympic lifting over the last year or so. I volunteered at the Worlds in 2015 (so awesome) and I have done 4 competitions so far and I absolutely love doing it (training and competing)!
