Spend the weekend learning the theory and practice of the squat, press, deadlift and bench with Starting Strength Coaches Diego Socolinsky and Emily Socolinsky. The workshop will begin on Saturday with a lecture focused on biomechanics and the basics of the squat, including a discussion of the lift, including the anatomy and forces at work in its execution. After the lectures, we will move into the squat practical portion with plenty of time under the bar for all the lifters. We will finish the first day with a brief Q&A about the squat or lecture. This will end day one of the workshop.
Day Two of the workshop will begin with a lecture on the shoulder anatomy of the press followed by the practical portion for the press. Following the press, we will move into a lecture on the mechanics of the deadlift and the practical portion on the deadlift. After the deadlift, we will break for an hour for lunch. Following the lunch break, we will wrap up the lifts with a lecture on the mechanics of the bench press and the practical portion on the bench. After the bench practical session, we will return for a discussion of programming. We will wrap up the workshop with a Q & A session.
Due to COVID-19 mandates in Baltimore City/Maryland, masks are required at all times while inside.
Weightlifting shoes are highly recommended. If you use a belt, please bring your belt as well. Sweatpants or knee high socks are encouraged for the deadlifting portion.
If you are looking for more in-depth discussion on the biomechanics of the squat, press, deadlift and bench, this is the workshop for you. Our goal is to provide you with more lecture on the anatomy of the lifts as well as a lot of time under the bar so you can use this new knowledge to get the most out of your own training and/or coaching.
