CrossFit Powerlifting will be
taught with the techniques used by Louie Simmons of Westside Barbell.
Laura Phelps-Sweatt and Shane Sweatt will be presenting
these methods at this course. Spend 2 days learning the Backsquat,
Deadlift, and Bench Press using techniques that have allowed Louie
Simmons to create the most successful powerlifters in the world. This
course is not for the faint of heart. You will be jumping right into a
very intense lifting environment.

has gained a vast amount of knowledge on how to produce strength.
Through experience, the percent training method, conjugate training
method, dynamic training method, maximum effort method, lifting
techniques, raising work capacity, rehabilitation and restoration, and

this knowledge and expertise that has lead to the production of 25 World
and National champions, 27 lifters who have totaled over 2000 lbs and a
world record in the 400m dash by Butch Reynolds. Also, Louie's methods
of training have resulted in thirty-three 550lb benchers, eighteen

articles have been published and 7 training videos produced. He also is
the creator of the Reverse Hyper 5356,359 and 6,491,607b2 machine,
