This course was developed to address the gap in fitness and strength and conditioning courses. It focuses purely on the technical aspects of the squat, bench press and deadlift, and shoulder and upper-back exercises. 

Technical lifting takes an approach of preferring to work through a series of exercise progressions that build the clients up to the point that they can safely maintain stability under load. This means each lift is performed with perfect execution, which leads to better joint alignment, reduced risk of injury and optimal lifting performance.

This was a fantastic course; I feel very grateful for having the opportunity to do it. Even though the course was online, I felt really engaged through its entirety which is a testament to all of you, as I much prefer face-to-face learning. At no time did I struggle to stay engaged. I will definitely be recommending it to others; 5 stars!

I found the entire course content so useful and easy to comprehend. As suggested in the course, I'm applying this learning to a program for myself and finding it beneficial to correct those neglected aspects of lifting.

This course not only targets a set group of lifters but covers an across the board dynamic of people to help strengthen their bodies and live a more mobile, stronger life.

Once again thank you, everyone did a great job putting this entire course content together. It was awesome having Lauren as the visual example and Shannon sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm.
