WHAT IS STRENGTHCAMP?
A 6-week mini-course for beginners consisting of 12 one-hour lessons. Each class will follow a linear progression where you will learn and master the basics of all things strength-training: movement patterns, barbell and dumbbell technique, body awareness, training guidelines, safety, and much more.
HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM REGULAR GROUP CLASSES?
Our aim with StrengthCamp is to introduce women to strength training by focusing on the stuff that really matters. StrengthCamp is a well thought-out training program performed in a group class format. At the end of our 6 weeks together, we expect participants to have increased knowledge and confidence in the gym, as well as body composition changes such as fat loss, increased muscle mass and strength.
WHO IS IT FOR?
StrengthCamp is for anyone who would like to improve their knowledge and skill in strength training, including complete novices to those who already have some experience under their belt but would like to take their training to the next level.
WHAT KIND OF THINGS WILL I BE LEARNING?
Whether you would like to gain muscle, lose fat, or if you’d simply like to learn how to train smarter, you can benefit from learning optimal movement technique.
We’ll be covering the squat, hinge, push, pull, and locomotion movements, as well as core training.
Other things you’ll learn in this class include:
– How to properly warm up and cool down before training, including how to target problems areas such as the shouldres, upper back, hips, and ankles
– Safety precautions such as best spotting practices, how to use weight training equipment, safety pins, etc
– Specific barbell and dumbbell training technique
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END OF THE COURSE?
If you’d like to put your knowledge and training experience to use and keep building upon your newly-learned skills, you can apply to become a part of Barbells & Babes, which will start in September of 2019.
You can also choose from our many other training options at Barbell Strength, depending on your specific goals and availability.
