We are delighted to announce a practical workshop with one of the world’s leading weightlifting coaches. US-based Glenn Pendlay has developed lifters like Jon North, Donny Shankle, Jared Fleming, James Moser and James Tatum and this is a unique opportunity to learn from the best.
A wide range of topics will be covered including flexibility and mobility for weightlifting, specific warm-ups, weightlifting for sports performance, conditioning for high repetition lifting, coaching of the main Olympic lifts, motor patterns, the speed of movement and most importantly an invaluable insight from a world-class coach.
This workshop is not only suited to active weightlifters – it is open to all athletes, players, coaches and for anyone with an interest in the application of weightlifting in sport. It will be a highly practical day and a fantastic opportunity to be coached by Glenn.
Glenn Pendlay is a top US Olympic weightlifting coach who has produced national champions at every level of the sport, from the Junior Olympics through Masters and Senior Nationals.
In 1992, Glenn met Russian coach Alexander Medvedev while attending the Junior World Powerlifting championships in Moscow. Medvedev invited him to remain in Russia where he would personally train him on the Olympic lifts. Since then Glenn has produced over 100 National Champs and 20 medalists in international competition, and his athletes have broken as many as 10 American records in a single year.
This is the level of experience he will share during his time here in Ireland with us. Find out what he does differently, and what you can learn from one of the great weightlifting coaches.
