No one likes to learn base principles anymore. Social media has made it easy for people to just watch a YouTube video on lifting and do it themselves. Skill acquisition is fundamental in the mastery of any craft. To prevent injury, you need to have knowledge of the marriage between movement, anatomy, and physiology.
In this episode, Shallow and Jiunta have a chat with Killian Hamilton and go over the different stages of skill acquisition. They talk about the importance of having a deep understanding of any craft, the loss of respect for lifting, and specialization as a valuable skill.
We get a bird’s eye view of the interplay of learning and application. If you want to get a deeper understanding of mastering the art of lifting, make sure to tune in to RX'D Radio for the detailed discussion!
Killian Hamilton is the head coach of Pre-Script in Canada. He is a competitive powerlifter and strength coach. Having competed and coached athletes at the National and World level, he believes that at its core, strength is a skill, and acquiring that skill is paramount in the pursuit of performance.
