Most conversations about lifting and programming really boil down to personal experiences and go something like “Do X program and Y lifts, because they worked well for Z. If that doesn’t work, try something else.”

The Agatsu Strength and Speed course is not just a list of programs and exercises to blindly follow. It is designed to give participants the tools needed to understand what goes into designing a program from the ground up, as well as technical training to break down the major barbell lifts and a wide variety of exercises for speed development.

Don’t just learn the “what”, learn the “why”!

This is no ordinary powerlifting-based course, nor is it any ordinary programming course. It’s the unique perspective Agatsu is known for worldwide, now brought to the traditional weight room.

 What You Will Learn:

  • Technical training in the major barbell power lifts, and how to apply them outside of powerlifting for athletes and general clients.
  • How to incorporate barbell variants using chains, bands or other augments.
  • How to clearly define strength, speed and explosiveness and understand how to focus your training.
  • How to program using percentages versus training by feel, and why/when to use one or the other.
  • Understand the role of muscle mass in athletics and how to develop it properly.
  • The role of speed in strength and athletics, who needs specific speed training and how to integrate it.
  • Training techniques for speed and explosiveness.
