The Powerlifting Mentorship Program

Have you ever had detailed questions about a lift and you just couldn’t seem to find the exact answer online?  Have you watched an instructional video and then wanted to ask follow-up questions about that technique but were unable to do so?  Would you like to be able to ask program design questions to an experienced coach and then have a dialogue about the different options?  Ever thought about becoming a powerlifting coach to help others dominate on the platform?

If the above scenarios applied to you, then you are in luck.  Here is your chance to do all of those things and more.  I am pleased to announce the creation of The Powerlifting Mentorship Program.  The goal of this program is to teach your all of the fine details of the sport of powerlifting, so you can in turn help yourself and help others reach strength levels they never even dreamed were possible. 

Let me share with you why I created this program.  A few weeks I received this email:

“Hi Tim – I’m currently looking for an online powerlifting mentor. I work as a personal trainer and want eventually to train athletes for meets. I would also like to improve some aspects of my strength programming for gen pop clients. In the country where I live (XXXX) there are no good coaches who train natural athletes that I know of. What I’m looking for is a powerlifting coach who currently trains athletes for competition and who would help me with aspects such as programming and exercise selection (I would pay them for their time obviously). What I have is mind is case studies or using some of my clients as case studies. I’ve done lots of reading, but I need help with the application.  Do you know anyone who would be a good fit for this?”

I was immediately intrigued by the idea.  I hadn’t heard of a setup exactly like this before, but I could see there was a need for it.  At first I kicked around the idea of just doing this one on one, but if I charged my usual rate that would likely be outside the workable range for most individuals and yet the idea of working 15 hours a month on something like this for a couple of hundred bucks didn’t sound very appealing either. 

The solution was just like personal training – we make it a group thing.  We get a small but dedicated group of individuals that want to do this.  With a group I can keep the price per individual pretty reasonable, but I can still be compensated fairly and best of all in a group we’ll have different perspectives, different questions, and we can all learn from either other.  Thus the Powerlifting Mentorship Program was born.

I am visualizing this as a 12-week online program.  Each week we will have clear objectives, recommended reading, study notes and additional supplemental material to help us learn the key concepts.  At the end of the week we’ll get together – primarily via a closed facebook group and/or possibly over the phone/Skype – and we’ll talk about what we learned, how to apply it, and the questions you have about it.  Just like real school, each week will build upon itself.  By the end of the 12 weeks, you should be an expert in the sport of powerlifting.

If you are considering doing this, I should warn you that I am looking for eager, active participants.  If you just want me to spoon feed you the information with no active learning on your part, this won’t work.  I am looking for individuals that have questions, that want programs to be analyzed, that want to understand the differences between Westside and Starting Strength, and what’s good about 5/3/1 and what could be improved, and why moving your elbows in or out at a certain point on the bench makes a huge different in muscle recruitment.  I will expect you to ready, to study, to learn, and fire back questions at me. 

Here’s an overview of some of the topics we are going to cover in the Powerlifting Mentorship Program:

  • Powerlifting Fundamentals – stuff you must know
  • Program Design Basics – main difference between size and strength
  • Biomechanical analysis of the squat and how to train it
  • Biomechanical analysis of the bench and how to train it
  • Biomechanical analysis of the deadlift variations and how to train
  • Game day preparations: tapering, attempt selection, winning strategy, making weight, and how to warm-up
  • Analysis of popular PL programs with pros and cons
  • How to write your own programs
  • The different feds and various rules
  • The 30 sec video analysis
  • Plus much more!

Here’s what you get with this program:

  • Weekly objectives, study notes, and assorted articles
  • Access to private FB page for Mentorship Program Members only
  • Exclusive video content
  • Tim’s individual review with feedback of your programs and submissions
  • A complimentary copy of:
    •  All About Powerlifting hardcopy

    • All About Program Design eBook
    • A $60/value
  • Ability to participate in group chats
  • If needed group or individual phone chats to explain challenging material
  • Certification of Completion

The program is set to start on Monday February 25th and it will run until the end of May.  With my personal training and teaching schedule as busy as it is, it is unlikely I will run this program again in 2019.

The cost for this program is $350 or 3 payments of $135/each. 

If you are ready to take your passion and your knowledge of powerlifting to the next level; if you want to be truly elite when it comes to the information you know and how you can help your friends, your clients, and yourself then apply NOW.  I am only accepting 10 students for this first class.  Don’t hesitate and miss your chance, contact me today so you don’t let this pass you by.
