Olympic lifts and their different variations offer a valuable training method within a strength and conditioning coach’s performance training toolbox. Modern strength and conditioning programs share the very same foundations upon which Olympic weightlifting is based - power, RFD, absolute strength and classic periodisation models. Most would agree that Olympic lifts require high physical and technical ability, thereby making them an effective addition to training programs designed to increase athleticism and overall strength.
Due to the technical and performance demands of Olympic weightlifting, fitness coaches and personal trainers should have sound knowledge of how to effectively progress in Olympic weightlifting ability. This short course will explore how you can effectively and successfully incorporate Olympic weightlifting into your clients’ training programs, and how to improve your own Olympic weightlifting performance - a great place to start and nail those lifts!
