Podcast 050: Mike Tuchscherer – Individual Differences & Coaching the Elite

Mike Tuchscherer is the founder of Reactive Training Systems (RTS) and a very successful powerlifter.

RTS is a powerlifting coaching service which has produced a number of world class athletes. He is known for his integration of the RPE System into Powerlifting/Strength sports. And as I said he is a great powerlifter:

  • Gold Medal at the 2009 World Games (First male in USA Powerlifting history to do this)
  • Won 8 USAPL National Championships
  • 2 Bronze, 3 Silver, 1 Gold medals in IPF World Championships
  • Set 3 IPF World Records multiple times

In this episode we dig deep into Mike’s coaching philosophies, particularly those surrounding the more elite athletes.
