Has anyone ever visited someone to help them improve their lifts? I've heard of seminars where a group of lifters go listen to a little presentation then goto the gym and max out/lift. Afterwards the coach tells you what you can do to improve, what caused you to fail, etc. I'm 19 years old and I was wondering if I could see some benefits by getting a little bit of advanced training. Here are my stats
Bench 320lb Raw, 350lb with shirt
Squat 385lb (low due to severe osgood slatters in both knees...that won't go away)
Also, if you recommend them, know of any good ones in the Ohio/PA/WV area?
I htink anyone can benefit from some coaching.
The guys at elite fitness systems have seminars pretty regulalry in Columbus. Check out their site (www.elitefts.com)
Their seminars focus on their style of training (westside/conjucated periodization); I learned a bunch just seeing a seminar video from them.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
"You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
Thanks, i'll check it out. Columbus is only about 2 hrs and 45 minutes away.Originally Posted by Paul Stagg
You could simply find out what powerlifting federations are nearby. Then you can email some of the guys, or visit a competition to meet some people. Generally, they will be more than happy to let you come workout with them sometime and do some form checking. Usually powerlifters are very encouraging towards others and always willing to help.

Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.
