Bench | Deadlift | Squat – Powerlifting Seminar
Earlier this year we were fortunate enough to deliver a powerlifting seminar to the PTs of EMF Fitness and Performance Centres on the Gold Coast. In conjunction with Australia Champion Powerlifter, Will Crozier from Nexus Performance Australia, we cracked down on the underlying principles of lifting, simple assessments we use in client management, and how to regress and progress exercises and training. A lot of the discussion was based on creating the foundations needed to lift efficiently, pain-free and in a way the reduces injury risk.
Interacting with PTs and Coaches is so important for heath professionals such as physios who are working with the same individual or athlete. We all learn from each others perspectives and insights, which come from all different angles and backgrounds. This collaboration leads to the best outcomes for clients, and makes training progressive and fun. We should not forget that we should always have intent for what we do, a keep things as simple as possible unless otherwise necessary. Complexity is not always required, especially without the foundation strength, control and movement patterns required for such technical lifts as bench, deadlifts and squats.
