#95 Mike Tuchscherer - Emerging Strategies
In this episode of The Muscle Memoirs Podcast, I am joined by Mike Tuchscherer to discuss the Emerging Strategies framework, the utility of submaximal volume work, and hypertrophy blocks for powerlifters.
Mike began coaching in 2004 when he took over as Cadet-in-Charge of the USAFA Powerlifting club. Over the 15+ years Mike has been coaching, he has coached over 400 lifters. Sixteen of those lifters went on to earn a medal at the IPF Classic World Championships under his guidance. Fourteen lifters have earned World Records.
As part of RTS Classroom, Mike has taught more than 500 athletes and coaches how to make better training decisions. Whether through innovative concepts or ground-level coaching, through free online systems or direct teaching, through his own lifting or the coaching of others, Mike has inspired countless other powerlifters to individualize their training so that it works best for them.
