Tommy Kono has won Olympic gold medals, one silver, was eight times world champion, set 26 world records spread over 4 bodyweight classes, was not subsidized, did not have fancy training quarters, coaches, or any of the things of today. How did he do it? How did he beat the world? He knew that lifting is more than muscle power. It's mental power. His first book, Weightlifting, Olympic Style, is a textbook on the Olympic lifts and it covers lifting technique to training programs and contest preparation with examples and stories related to actual performances. This second book, Championship Weightlifting, covers the mental and psychological side of Olympic weightlifting and expounds on the approach to overcome the barriers that hold us back from progressing. Originally intended for coaches and elite lifters, he realized that the mental approach must be nurtured from the very beginning; so after several years of writing, he decided to rewrite some of the previous materials so it will be helpful to beginners as well. In Championship Olympic Weightlifting, 50% is mental, 30% technique and 20% power. Most everyone has this in the reverse order of importance and spend too many hours in hard physical training but hardly any time in grooming his or her mind for the sport. This second book emphasizes how important the mental aspect has on Olympic weightlifting.
