A short bio about the coach. He is a certified trainer/strength coach (NSCA), and has a BS/MS
in Physical Education and Human Performance. Has a graduate certificate in exercise with a major in "Drug Supplementation
As Related To Sports Performance." He presently teaches Physical Education in Virginia.
He was a high school/college football/strength coach for over twenty years, and at 61,
can bench close to 400. He has recently started to train for a full-lift meet. Even with an artificial hip he
goes below parallel.
From 1965-1968, he served with the Marines as a member of the 3rd Recon Battalion. He
taught hand to hand combat techniques. After being discharged, he attended Southern CT State College in New Haven.
Another graduate of SCSC, and still in school at that time, was DR. Squat,(Fred Hatfield).
His main goal is to set up my routines, and help me plan where and when I will compete. So far things
have gone well, and I hope this year will be a productive one, with respect to family, career, marriage and powerlifting.
I met Frank about 2 years after I had started lifting and competing. When we started to train together
we basically started from scratch, keeping what was good, tossing out what was bad...there was alot of stuff thrown away.
The great thing about training with him is that he truly knows of what he speaks and he is a
teacher, not just a "DO THIS" coach.
Each movement and exercise done in training relates directly to what is done at meets. He has
yet to "Hunt and Peck" for what needs to be done while at the gym. He also finds time to train himself..after me.
