Education Update: Tommy Yule Strength Workshop and Training Tomorrows Champions!
Hope you’re week is going very well!
It’s been a busy month for me in terms of coaching and delivering workshops. Last weekend I had a UKSCA weightlifting workshop at Leeds Met. Although the snow was bad we still got a decent crew through the 2 days and I have to say that the standard of lifting within that group was extremely high. Really good stuff.
The week before that we had Tommy Yule up to do a workshop on Weightlifting for Athletes. This for me was absolutely superb. Just the sheer level of expertise that Tommy brings to the field, it really was an awesome day.
And that leads me on to todays education update. Which is all about the month of April!
So in April we have 2 workshops.
Firstly on the 6th we have Rhodri Lloyd coming up to do a day on ‘Training Tomorrows Champions’.Rhodri is one of the leading figures in paediatric Strength and Conditioning and Athletic Development in the UK at the current time. He wrote the position statement for the UKSCA on that very subject, has a Phd focussing on youth strength training, and is also a practising coach and tutor for the UKSCA. The workshop will be both theory and practical, but needless to say a lot of truth will be spoken and some big questions answered! I can’t wait to listen to this one!

The second workshop on the 20th April is Tommy Yules second day which this time focusses on strength training. Now Tommy is a serial medallist at the commonwealth games and an olympian in the sport of weightlifting so he knows a thing or two about building serious strength. He’s also a strength and conditioning coach working in elite sport with UK Athletics and other governing bodies. It’s this personal and applied experience that he’ll be sharing on the workshop.
Here’s a clip of Tommy FRONT squatting 210kg, an awesome demonstration of strength:
Key considerations such as how often should people lift above 90%, programming for strength and power, how many times should you squat heavy in a week, coaching considerations for the major movements to maximise strength potential and much more will be covered in the workshop.
We had 20 coaches attend the first workshop, I think this one will be very similar, and with a maximum number of 25 I would book asap to avoid missing out.
The early bird price for this workshop EXPIRES ON THE 30TH MARCH so save yourself some money and book in advance.

Be great to catch you at a workshop soon!
PS If you’re coming up to Rhodri’s workshop don’t forget you can get some training in at the strength camp, 4 sessions over 2 days.
