Women’s Weightlifting 101 Workshop

Women’s Weightlifting 101 Workshop

Whether through social conditioning, antiquated ideas or a sheer lack of opportunity, women often donโ€™t get access to the same training and support necessary to embrace their potential for strength.

The squat racks and free-weights section of the gym simply arenโ€™t spaces weโ€™re taught or encouraged to inhabit. In fact some women even fear losing their femininity through lifting and perhaps developing a bulkier physique.

This 4-hour workshop with expert Strength Coach Charlotte Miles is here to dispel these concerns and show you just how safe and beneficial a weightlifting practice can be, for both body and mind.

WORKSHOP CONTENTS

  • Introduction to the basics of weightlifting for health and wellness
  • The Powerlifts โ€“ Deadlift, Back Squat, Bench Press, Strict Press
  • Muscular activation and proper firing patterns
  • The โ€˜Support Crewโ€™ โ€“ Accessory and supplemental movement training
  • Underpin your pyramid โ€“ Principles and methods of progressive overload
  • MCI โ€“ A โ€˜form firstโ€™ safeguard against injury and overuse
  • Strong body, strong mind

Youโ€™ll leave with a comprehensive theoretical and practical foundation for lifting heavy but with great mechanics and the knowledge of how to progressively up the ante over time. Youโ€™ll learn just how to activate your prime-movers for optimal muscular firing, along with understanding the purpose of supplemental โ€˜support crewโ€™ exercises for filling the gaps in your programming. Beyond this, we hope youโ€™ll leave inspired and armed with the confidence to seek out your strongest self!
