Olympic Weightlifting Technique & Mobility For Optimal Performance




How to Master Mobility and Dominant Olympic Lifts Faster Than You Ever Imagined Possible



Discover how you can save time and learn the best mobility methods and lifting techniques so you and/or your athletes can improve performance and crush the competition while avoiding injury and setbacks!


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.


You have the potential to annihilate your PRs, stomp the competition, and lay to rest all your nagging mobility issues and we are going to teach you how.

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.

In Olympic Weightlifting: Technique and Mobility For Optimal Performance, you will learn to:

Become an expert on your own mobility needs. You’ve been taught to run through some random drills that are one-size fits none. They probably aren’t working for you, or you find them so pointless that you skip them altogether (which is inhibiting your performance even more!). You will learn to understand your body in a way that teaches you to cater mobility toward what you need to be primed and ready for training.

Unlock your greatest strength potential. You want to break plateaus, smash PRs, and rise to the occasion when your competition date comes. You will learn exactly what you need to do to safely and effectively increase your strength over time so when you step onto the platform you hit PRs like no one’s business.

Gain insight into better drills to that improve your performance at lightning speed. You’ve been doing run-of-the-mill accessory drills that lead up to lackluster lifts. This program introduces cutting-edge drills and movements that teach you to move explosively while maintaining proper alignment and mastering technique.

Develop into a top-performing athlete through a comprehensive coaching program that walks you through each movement step-by-step while breaking down all the components into easily digestible bites of information. You’re an intelligent lifter who is short on time and wants to get to meat of the matter. We break everything down so you better relate to your own restrictions and limitations, how they hold you back from becoming the powerhouse you know you are, and how to conquer them so you demolish the competition every time.

The coaching offer in this program offers the exact same tools, techniques, strategies, and training we provide to the hundreds of athletes that visit our gym every month. And they have helped countless CrossFit and Olympic lifters regardless of their background, age, or experience.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

“Finally – the best of both worlds – a product on weightlifting from both the perspective of clinician and weightlifting coach.  As an affiliate owner, I realize that 99% of my members don’t possess the familiarity or prerequisite mobility/stability to perform such complex movements safely.  Though it’s our job as coaches to give them the appropriate movement coaching, This is a huge tool for my coaching staff.”
