MOST ADVANCED STRENGTH COACHING WORKSHOP

Improve your biomechanics, learn scientific principle of training and manage injuries

Australia's most advanced strength coaching in Australia. Designed for Strength Coaches, Physiotherapist, Exercise Science Students, Personal Trainers, and Strength Athletes. 

Over our 2 courses Principles of Strength Movement and Advanced Strength Coaching, you will improve your knowledge in biomechanics, injury prevention, movement assessment, lifting technique, programming, periodization, recovery, and much more

LEARN SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLE
TO STRENGTH TRAINING

What you learn here isn't just >|[insert miracle system]|< "our system" it is a method of understanding the why? We believe having a fundamental understanding of science can allow you to solve problems more effectively and beyond expectations. We have discovered so much just utilizing the scientific method to our idea and then find out a few years down the track that research now proves our ideas. We will then teach you a practical approach and show you the skills, methods, and technique that we have tried and tested with many high-performing strength athletes from lifting technique to programming.

This course sets you up to understand the reasoning behind the lifting technique through and understanding of biomechanics, physiology, and anatomy. You will learn how to return to lifting from injury and to manage it moving forward.

ADVANCED STRENGTH COACHING

Focus on athletic development for strength sports with a major focus on powerlifting. This is where you learn to better manage athletes and create plans and programs that optimizing performance, capacity, ability, and well-being.

COURSE OVERVIEW

Our comprehensive Principles of Strength Movements is an interactive, in-person education course through which attendees will develop mastery around strength movements. We invite you to join the over 100s individuals who have attended Lifters League courses over the last 3 years by signing up for one of our upcoming courses.

Together with other athletes, coaches, and clinicians – you will spend 16 hours over 2 days in a hybrid lecture-workshop format learning from and working hands-on with an experienced group of Strength coaches and athletes. Outside of our public events; we regularly present this curriculum to fitness professionals, coaches and clinicians. Attendees from all professions and sports – and with differing goals - find incredible value in developing strength, resilience to injury, and gaining a better understanding of their own physiology and individual mechanics as it relates to movement.

You will be introduced and take a deep dive into our principle-based movement system as well as cover higher level physiology and biomechanics from a clinical, research-based perspective. Some of the topics covered include spinal mechanics, breathing function, foot strength, and principles behind the complex relationships of hip, spine, and shoulder function.

Each lecture section is followed up with a corresponding breakout session that will have you working with a coach in a collaborative small group setting. Attendees will take the role of both demonstrating, assessing, and coaching correctives and drills – all under the watchful eyes of a Strength Coach.

After a short review, the second day of the course involves short lectures and demonstration of practical applications to barbell training after which attendees will individually squat, bench press, and deadlift. This practicum typically results in many “aha” moments of clarity for lifters who quickly develop self-awareness of their previous movement faults as well as an understanding of why those faults existed and how to overcome them. It’s not uncommon for attendees during this second day to hit personal bests or lift pain-free after years of frustration and no progress.

Our mission for this course is to provide you with the education and tools necessary to achieve your goals – whether you are an athlete, coach, clinician, or simply curious to learn and grown in your knowledge and abilities. Correct, safe movement is foundational to our function not just as athletes, but human beings.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • An understanding of Breathing Mechanics and how it maximise intra-abdominal pressure and reduces the risk of spine injuries
  • A basic understanding of spine mechanics and how to protect if from heavy loads
  • An understanding of foot mechanics how proper foot function increased performance and reduces the risk of knee and hip injuries
  • An understanding of force production and how its created through movment and stability
  • Movement screens to assess dysfuntions in all strength movements
  • Understanding behind priniciple of activation, mobilisation and warming up before training
  • Management of common injuries & pain such us lower back, shoulder, knees and hips
  • Understanding of differenciating optimal mechnics and functionality and personalising technique for each athlete
  • Understand how to optimise techinque due to anatomical and anthropometric differences
  • Basic understanding periodising, programming and exercise selection based off individual assessments
  • Understanding of structing a training block and peaking for competition

The Advanced Strength Coaching course is designed for you to learn how to combine scientific training methods with a clinically based movement system to build the best training plans for yourself and those you coach.

You will find out what has made the Lifters League Coaches so successful in developing elite level powerlifters while also working with professional athletes.

Over the course of 2 days (16 hours) we’ll teach you how to manage and evaluate:

  • Periodization models for long term planning with detailed goal setting
  • Athletic Profiling including neurotyping, personality profiling and classificating athletes
  • How to choose the best exercise selection and loading parameters to match athlete profile and goals
  • Programming for powerlifting competition preparation
  • Programming for new lifters
  • Exercise classification hierarchy
  • Simplifying frequency, volume, intensity, and other training variables
  • Systematically developing work capacity (phase potentiation)
  • Sport Psychology in Strength Training and Strength Sports
  • Management of Fatigue and Recovery for training
  • Autoregulation including RPE, velocity, and what type of athlete should use each

Our mission for this course is to expose you to the methods and systems that have contributed to the success of our athletes and give you the tools necessary to make objective, purposeful decisions while creating training plans for yourself and those you coach.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • You will be able to classify athletes to help make better programming decisions
  • Learn to unclutter your program and keep it simple and effective
  • Learn how to make better plans with defined goals, methods and outcomes
  • Understand to stages to long term athletic development
  • Understand the ways to use different training varables and when
  • Manage fatigue and recovery to optimise performance
  • How to prepare for a powerlifting competition
  • Autoregulation including RPE, velocity, and what type of athlete should use each
  • How to test your own ideas and methods using the scientific method
  • Better select assistance exercise
  • Training for hypertrophy and how to use it for strength athletes
