Seminar Description

This is a one day, hands on clinic that focuses on the improvement of technique for all Olympic Weightlifting movements and their variations. Participants will be taught proper progressions for the snatch and the clean and jerk, and learn how to troubleshoot and correct technique flaws.

Depending on equipment availability, and location of the workshop, two to three participants will be assigned per barbell/platform, and be paired with lifters of similar totals. Each session will conclude with an opportunity for the participant to work up to a max effort lift, under coaches discretion, in a ” mock meet ” format.

Seminar Coaches:

Our Coaches are former national team members, or international/national class athletes.  Depending on the size of the seminar, there will be approximately 1 coach per 8 participants. See coaches bios at the following link. Farm Strong Coaches
