Coach MaChris “Mac” Dompor started Olympic Weightlifting in 2012 after he saw videos of people doing the snatch and clean and jerk. Unfortunately, because of a lack of proper guidance he suffered a serious back injury. Thus, the obsession with strict Weightlifting technique began. He had a strong fascination of the gracefulness and efficiency of China’s weightlifters and modeled his training principles and philosophy from their system. After attending multiple Chinese Weightlifting seminars and a full Weightlifting training camp in China, Coach Mac shares his knowledge with the members of NECF everyday. Coach Mac has also completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science at Lehman College and received his certification of USAW Level 1.
