Spend the day learning the theory and practice of the press and the bench press with Starting Strength Coaches Inna Koppel and Chris Palladino.
The camp will focus on good execution of the lifts, the practical aspects of performing the lifts, and how they fit into a training program. Participants will spend lots of time on the platform receiving coaching and instruction on the press and bench press in a small group setting. Attendees will learn the hallmarks of a properly executed press and how it should look and feel when it is performed correctly. Attendees will be coached through the practical portion of the press and then take a short break.
Following the press session, the group will be introduced to the Starting Strength model of the bench press, with focus not only on the movement itself, but also on proper spotting and safety techniques. Similar to the press session, attendees will learn how a correctly performed bench press should look and feel when done according to the model as they are coached through their warm-ups and work sets.
After the practical sessions are complete, we will begin a discussion of programming and how to identify and correct common technical problems. The camp will wrap up with a question and answer session. Whether you are just starting out with strength training, struggling with the basics of the lifts, or looking to polish your technique and understanding of these movements, you will come away with valuable insights and experience to benefit your training. Attendance will be capped at twelve to allow for individualized instruction.
What to Bring
Proper weightlifting shoes are highly recommended. They increase stability, control, and consistency in all of the lifts and should be considered essential equipment if barbell training is a priority. If participants use weightlifting belts, they are encouraged to bring them. You are also encouraged to wear a 100% cotton shirt if possible or avoid wearing any slick/moisture wicking material.
