The JuggLife: Injustice in the USAPL

Recently Keith McHoney, USAPL Champion in the 66kg Class and American Record Holder in the Squat/Deadlift/Total, was passed over the 2017 IPF World Team, going against the World Team selection procedures. Chad and Max discuss why this may have occurred and expose the reality of ‘the honor’ of being on the IPF World Team.

    My father, Dave Schneider, was not selected for the USAPL Masters World Team this year. Last year, he was all prepped and ready to compete when his “coach” emailed him saying he picked his attempts. This “coach” *Cough*Paulie Steinman*cough* wouldn’t share the attempts with my father and became unresponsive to emails and didn’t communicate with him until AFTER he was in Killeen. In the end, my dad shared what attempts he wanted to take and the “coach” told my father ‘he wasn’t able to lift that much.’ (Yes, that’s a quote.) The “coach” wouldn’t even consider my father’s choice attempts so I’m the end he decided not to lift. Imagine paying all that money, training and then not lifting. My father is a Masters lifter and has been competing since the 70s with a pretty lengthy resume. Then there’s this “coach” who maybe competed once telling him what to do…

      Sorry to hear that Keith. I was informed about your dad’s situation last night as well after we recorded this.

      • Keith Schneider

        I was very glad to hear that someone actually took action in making these situations more well known. I appreciate the podcast. My father and I are working on spreading the word too.

    “you actually have competition” at IPF Worlds.

  • Marc W. Morris

    Do you guys think being a successful training/prep coach translates into a being a successful meet day coach?

    • Chad Wesley Smith

      No definitely not, but it should be the athletes choice who advises them on the day, if anyone.
