CrossFit Powerlifting will be taught with the techniques used by Louie Simmons of Westside Barbell. Laura Phelps-Sweatt and Shane Sweatt will be presenting these methods at this course. Spend 2 days learning the Backsquat, Deadlift, and Bench Press using techniques that have allowed Louie Simmons to create the most successful powerlifters in the world. This course is not for the faint of heart. You will be jumping right into a very intense lifting environment.
Over the many years that Louie has been involved in Powerlifting, he has gained a vast amount of knowledge on how to produce strength. Through experience, the percent training method, conjugate training method, dynamic training method, maximum effort method, lifting techniques, raising work capacity, rehabilitation and restoration, and reactive and contrast method have become his area of expertise. It is this knowledge and expertise that has lead to the production of 25 World and National champions, 27 lifters who have totaled over 2000 lbs and a world record in the 400m dash by Butch Reynolds. Also, Louie’s methods of training have resulted in thirty-three 550lb benchers, eighteen 600lb benchers, and five 700lb benchers. Also to his credit are twenty-eight 800lb plus squatters, ten 900lb plus squatters, and three 1000lb plus squatters.
