Course Description:

This course will take all participants through complete technical progressions of the competitive kettlebell lifts--the Jerk, the Clean and Jerk (a.k.a. Long Cycle), and the Snatch--as well as their associated movements and assistance exercises. At the end of the course, attendees should not only expect to be able to perform the lifts correctly themselves but also to have learned simple and easy to understand ways of coaching others to perform the lifts. The course includes classroom and practical (hands-on) portions. Course duration is over one weekend and lasts approximately 14-15 hours, with up to 10 hours being practical and 4 - 5 hours lecture-based. It is recommended for Strength & Conditioning/Sports Performance, Health & Fitness, and beginning level coaches.
