In this VIDEO, I go over whether a coach makes a difference or not. This is a topic that comes up often. And it’s typically asked because people want to know how valuable a coach is and whether a lifter would be at the same point they’re currently at because they’re genetically gifted.
In the video, I break down the topic into a number of different points. I include things like when a lifter first gets started in the sport, when a lifter is doing higher-level meets, the coaching done in the lead up to a meet, and the coaching done at a meet. Obviously, I’m a bit biased since I’m a coach but I try to show all sides of each of the points. In the end, the answer is going to somewhat depend on the type of person the lifter is. Depending on their personality and how much effort they want to put into doing all the things a coach does, a lifter may or may not be able to get to the same point they’re currently at without a coach.

My name is Arian Khamesi and I’m a Powerlifting Coach under The Strength Guys. In addition, I’m involved in the sport of Powerlifting as an athlete, meet director, referee, scoring manager, committee member, and more. On this channel, I produce videos that are beneficial for Powerlifting athletes, coaches, meet directors, and referees. The videos will be most applicable to those involved in an International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) affiliate, like USA Powerlifting (USAPL). But many of the tips and tricks can also be used for those involved in other Powerlifting federations.
