Whether you’re a seasoned athlete, veteran coach, or just getting started with Olympic weightlifting or CrossFit and have barely brushed the technical surface of lifting, this uniquely designed program will take you to your highest performance level yet in less time … without blowing thousands of dollars on top-level coaches.
So many athletes and coaches limit their potential by wasting endless hours warming up with wrong mobility drills (if they do them at all), lifting far less than their potential weight, or using substandard technique. This leads to bigger frustrations, countless missed reps, debilitating injuries, and a shattered ego drowning in a puddle of sweat.
Does this sound familiar? The truth hurts, but your lifting is only as good as your technique. And your technique is only as good as your mobility. If your training lacks either component you’re left with a soul-crushing defeat during competition … or worse yet, you never make it to the platform because you’re only as good as your worst training days. And, well, those sucked. Hardcore.
Back in the early days of Olympic Weightlifting budding athletes had to travel hundreds, sometimes even thousands, of miles to windowless underground lairs to train with bearded gurus that charged thousands of dollars to take on the Herculean task of building world-class athletes. Thanks to internetting you can access a team of elite level coaches and game-changing resources that transform you into a high-caliper athlete without breaking the bank or squandering away all your free time.
Imagine harnessing the brute strength of an ox and the sleek flow of a salamander within weeks of starting a new training system. Imagine piling on more weight to the bar while hitting all your lifts with sound technical skill and unwavering confidence. Imagine not missing a single rep or going home defeated from pain or injury.
Two-time Olympic Weightlifting Champion Jared Fleming and I have Spent years testing and treating to refine our coaching skillset and to identify the biggest limiters to athletic performance in the Olympic lifts. We’ve since gone on to work with some of the most elite athletes in the Olympic lifting and CrossFit worlds, not only making them healthier athletes, but better where it counts…on the platform.
After coaching thousands of clients, we learned that poor or misused mobility is a huge setback for athletes. Most programs teach you drills, but none address the key components to help you as the athlete determine exactly what you should be doing to improve your own performance.
We have also learned the biggest limitations that happen on the platform, which prevent you from breeching plateaus with your Olympic lifts and keep you stuck in this perpetual rut, or worse yet, has you so beat up and worn down that you spend days or even weeks on the injured reserve list.
Don't just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
