Course Description

This two-day, intensive course will leave you with new tools to optimize movement, positioning, and performance for the Snatch and Clean & Jerk; as well as safely manage common weightlifting injuries.

Upon successful completion, attendees will earn the designation of Certified ClinicalAthlete Weightlifting Coach (CCWC), which entails:

  • Proficiency in understanding how to assess weightlifters and their movement
  • Optimizing weightlifting movement through corrective strategies
  • Being able to transition a client, athlete, or themselves through the spectrum of weightlifting from regressions, modifications, and variations to performance in Olympic-style weightlifting.

This course is appropriate for any coach, clinician, or athlete looking to improve weightlifting performance and reduce risk of injury; and the ClinicalAthlete name ensures the material will be science-based.
