Event Details

The Art of Coaching Weightlifting is a Coaches' Seminar and Clinic is a 14 hour course over 2 plus days. It is not just  another course in progressions but comprehensive lessons in coaching and teaching methodology to give you the tools tobetter coach now. The course covers everything  from teaching beginners and movement assessment to a comparative of the most common progressions taught today. Furthermore,  we review how to integrate them into a program for teaching beginners and beyond. This course is not an argument in semantics; it IS a course that provides complete conceptual understanding of the lifts with full explanations of how and why.  It includes a section on error identification and which, how, and why exercises are used for correction of different errors. It concludes with a lecture and discussion  on Bulgarian versus Russian programming.
