Event Details

Donny Shankle Weightlifting Seminar 

The seminar will cover the elements of becoming the best weightlifter you can be from the physical to the mental. At the end of the seminar, you will learn (among other things) the Twelve Musts to apply to your lifting technique, proper progressions for the Snatch and Clean & Jerk and how to teach them yourself, principles to achieve optimum performance, subordinate exercises for variation and its importance, how to train and design your own program for your personal record results, how to prepare for a competition, and the psychology of a weightlifter. The psychology is commonly forgotten in seminars but it is important to learn how to get out of your head, lift with authority, and learn how to win. The seminar will be a combination of lecture and story telling, demonstrations, hands on practice for technique and PR attempts, individual coaching, and video analysis of the best in action (subject to equipment availability).

All attendees must bring a pair of weightlifting shoes and be able to do an over head squat to full depth (hips below knees).
