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.
TRIED & TESTED
PRINCIPLES OF STRENGTH MOVEMENTS
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.
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.
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.
