Weightlifter Derrick Johnson Flexes Muscles on Tim Ezell Show

Posted By on Thu, Mar 22, 2012 at 2:13 PM

This week's Riverfront Times cover boy Derrick Johnson, one of the nation's top-raked Olympic-style weightlifters and the subject of our March 22 feature profile "He Ain't Heavy," appeared this morning on Fox 2's "Tim Ezell at 9 a.m."

Johnson, who recently got fired from his head coaching job at Lindenwood University (as we chronicle in our feature story), shows he's still got the itch for coaching. In the clip below he instructs Ezell on how to properly execute a snatch. (Spoiler alert, Johnson snatches a lot more than Ezell, despite the stimulants the energetic TV host appears to have swallowed shortly before the program.)
