2 full days of excitement in San Diego county! Clinic will cover:

-Teaching progressions for the snatch, clean & jerk, and o-lift derivatives for athletic training

-Fault recognition & correction / coaching strategies

-How to achieve/maintain the requisite flexibility and mobility

-Program design and integration of the lifts into ahletic training

Geared toward the coach/trainer, but it will also be an opportunity to improve your own lifting.

More info and registration here (http://www.performancemenu.com/forum/../resources/events/olyClinic.php)

Hope you guys get a great turnout! Sounds like it should be fun, I need something like that....although the gas money from Atlanta will break my bank....

Yeah well....I wish I was a little bit taller. I wish I was a baller. I wish I had a girl who looked good. I would call her.

</hijack> Sorry Greg.

You guys should consider doing a seminar on the East Coast next time around...

Midwest (MN) would be sweet. I am not sure where, MN isn't a hotbed of OLY lifting. I guess I can dream about it.

What not one post on how Greg & Robb are evil for charging money for teaching Olympic lifting.
Just kidding.
Looks like you guys have a really good format.

Here's another vote for an east coast seminar. Atlanta would be puy fect.

Scott Kustes
07-18-2007, 01:30 PM
I vote Louisville, KY. You can use my garage. Just watch out for the rafters.

I'm begging you guys to do a seminar on the East Coast as well. Cost of travel coast to coast is out of control anymore.

Greg Everett

We will be doing an East Coast gig soon.

I got a combi downstairs you guys can sleep in if you come to Aus.

First Class accommodation down here mates, all class.

Don Stevenson

No need to drag Robb and Greg all the way out to Australia!

There are O lifting coaches out here with almost as many initials after their names.:D

Don Stevenson

RKC, Cert 4, ASCA Lvl 1, SPL/CWC, BSc.

Just kidding guys, any time you want to come and hang out there are plenty of gyms around you can sleep in.

Where abouts are you Don?

I've done some training at Cougars under Miles Wydall

I'll be heading to cougars in Oct for their O'Lift course. I've always got spare rooms at my house.

Josh remember this is a seminar not an EVIL MONEY MAKING certification!

A Midwest seminar in KC (with Coach Rut) would be awesome.

How about a tour? Hitting cities and gyms along the east coast, maybe lifting in some meets, a real road show, barnstorming power tour. Pull into some parking lot, start busting out the snatches, wait for a crowd to form, then dash away as the rent-a-cops roll up... guerilla weightlifting.

Hell yeah for a cross-country tour. Just drive around in a van with a few barbells, some weights, and a plywood platform. Also, paint the van silver with 3 red stripes.

The thing that will raise a serious stink will be our Performance Menu Secret Handshake Certification.

John-
I like the PM on tour thing. Back in the day that was one of the plans for Crossfit

. To have a moving van with gear and just fly in the trainers...not a bad idea.

I'd LOVE to get to Australia

, Europe etc. If/when that happens it would be imperative that we get local coaches like Don networked with as many people as possible. That is how folks in more remote locations will get more community and coaching going on.

Atlanta or Charlotte would be great; even better would be Asheville. We have the mountains, a very cool local music scene, and this area is probably the micro-brewing capital of the southeast.

Of course, I am obviously biased...

Gosh, I really wish this was closer to me here in Southern California because I'd be there in a heartbeat.

Oh wait. . .

Gosh, I wish I wasn't busy with my kids and their incessant sporting activities (actually will be with daughter #2 at a basketball tournament, then soccer, then other kids and basketball, then soccer. . .it never ends).

Ron,

Just drop the kids off at Legoland on Saturday and the Wild Animal Park on Sunday. Problem solved. If you're lucky, the Padres will have another Floppy Hat give away for the kiddies that weekend.

Can i get a discount if i volunteer to load and unload everyone's plates?

Joe Hart

Ron- You are supposed to keep it in your pants after the first one. I she wants two you have to MAKE HER PAY! That is what I keep telling myself I should have done.:)

Don Stevenson

I'm in Sydney and train/coach at Titans weightlifting club at the states sport centre.

We run the Level 1 weighlifting coaches course twice a year down here.

What makes you think I haven't done that already?

I have to correct myself; the tournament is a soccer tournament, not basketball. That's next week.

Literally, if it weren't for beer and a couple of friends, I'd have no weekends.

We have received NSCA approval to provide attendees 1.4 CEUs for both CSCS and CPT.

CEU = continuing education credit to keep certified strength and conditioning specialist (cscs) and certified personal trainer (cpt) certifications active through nsca

We've changed the seminar date to the following weekend - Oct 6-7

Ken Urakawa

Damn!! I've got a previous commitment that weekend. I was trying to work things to get out there, too. Ahh well, maybe next time.

On the plus side, I just found a set of calibrated Ivanko bumper plates (20, 15, 10, and 5) for cheap.

Rock on! I'll quit my job and become a groupie!

Derek Simonds

It looks like I will be a groupie also. I will be attending the one in DC and there is no way I would miss a seminar that is 25 minutes from my house in January.

BTW Greg and Robb if either of you need a place to crash for the Longwood seminar we have two spare bedrooms you are welcome to.

I am looking forward to both events.

Robb Wolf

Thanks Derek! Both Greg and i are house broken...more or less!

Will I be missing out badly if I don't have lifting shoes? I was planning to wear Chucks. I can scramble to get some this week if necessary.

Well.. Chucks will work, but lifting shoes will always work better. Your call.
