Technical Lifting with the Science of Strength Training

This course you will give you the basic knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles behind how to teach the squat, bench press and deadlift.

As well as how these exercises relate to performing similar movements such as lat-pulldowns, rows, overhead press, Olympic lifts, lunges and how to effectively modify an exercise or correct flaws in an individual’s technique.

“As an experienced Strength & Conditioning coach I’ve been blown away by the knowledge and coaching by Shannon Green. I have applied many of these lessons to the athletes I coach with immediate carry over. I highly encourage any fitness professionals & coaches involved in strength training attend this course. It’s not often you get to learn from a true master in the field with the level of both theoretical and practical experience as Shannon Green.”
