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.
Over the many years that Louie has been involved in Powerlifting, he
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
reactive and contrast method have become his area of expertise. It is
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
600lb benchers, and five 700lb benchers. Also to his credit are
twenty-eight 800lb plus squatters, ten 900lb plus squatters, and three

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,
patented in 1993. He is a strength consultant for the Cleveland Browns,
