Schedule

Friday, April 6th: At night, meet at a local pub for an ice-breaker and talk and merriment about all things lifting and otherwise. We want to connect and bond a bit before we launch into things. Attendance is optional

Saturday, April 7th: Theory Day. Break out the pencils and laptops as we launch into a range of useful, rich, and nuanced topics designed to make you a better powerlifter or coach. Each coach will present on a unique topic that is close to heart, leaving you with the best information. 

Sunday, April 8th:  We finish hands-on! Sunday will be devoted to in-the-gym feedback in small groups and one-on-one as we work directly with you to polish your technique and master the finer points of the squat, the bench press and the deadlift. All five coaches will be involved in the process of working on your technique and talking biomechanical theory of lifting. 

Topics

  • Developing a well-rounded coach's toolset, including programming concepts like autoregulation, flexible templates, submaximal training, percentage-based approaches, and how to mix the two. 
  • Exercise variation to address weaknesses and avoid injuries, including an unusual case for accommodating resistance.
  • Gender differences in training and metabolism. What training changes should one consider when training female or male athletes, based on the scientific literature? 
  • Enhancing athlete recovery. A discussion on what the science says is effective for recovery.
  • Sport psychology and mindset for the long-term athlete. A look at lessons from high performers, motivation, mental toughness, attitudes on success and failure, and coping.
