Learn the progressions and derivatives of the Olympic lifts as they apply to field and court based sports

Competition level Olympic lifting is an incredible ability that takes hours of practice and years of obsession to master.

But this level of dedication is not the only way to get tremendous benefit from one of the world’s most effective power training methodologies. By focusing on fundamental skills and qualities of the key lifts and their derivatives it is possible to gain competency in Olympic lifting rapidly and achieve a great return on the investment for athletic progress and adaptation.

In this short course, high performance coach Jacob Tober will take you through the theory behind how we utilise and deconstruct the Snatch, Clean and Jerk with athletes and general fitness clients from a range of backgrounds.

In the second component of the course join us for an extensive in-gym practical as we take a group of coaches of various skill levels from teaching drills with the broomstick all the way to explosive loaded power training with plenty of usable variations, common pitfalls and training/programming hacks along the way.
