Several years ago I was asked to review an Olympic Weightlifting DVD and I was really impressed by the content, so much so that I featured it on this blog >>check it out here<<.
So when Wil Fleming told me he had developed an Olympic Lifting Certification I had to take a look.
I worked my way through the course last week and the content is really good. So good in fact, I’m more than happy to tell the world about it!
Here’s what you’re going to get as part of this course.

This course will provide you with a complete understanding of why you are doing what you are doing, when to do it and how to progress it. How to assess and recognise the potential issues you may run into with your athletes.
This Certification Course is Set Up to Teach You the Coach…How to Teach the Olympic Lifts. (and if you have staff, it’s a great way to get them to get trained to be able to teach the Olympic weightlifting).
I’ve seen many coaches often do some Olympic lifting without a real reason why, well, what this course does is give you an understanding as to why you are teaching what you are teaching.
You will learn how to look at an athlete or group of athletes, and know exactly how to address their needs. Be able to breakdown and teach specific weightlifting skills…knowing what exercises to use and when, to get the best results from your athletes.
If you’re ready to make a quantum leap in your understanding of and ability to teach the Olympic lifts, this course is *that*programme.
