Episode 7! With special guest Yasha Kahn

Yasha Kahn joins us to discuss his experiences traveling the US with some of the best Olympic weightlifters in the world (and some of the best from the Powerlifting world, as well). He’s helped run seminars with Dmitry Klokov, Vasiliy Polovnikov, Ilya Ilyin, and Tatiana Kashirina. More recently, he’s worked with all-around-strongman Misha Koklyaev and Boris Sheiko, who is arguably the greatest powerlifting coach of all time.
