Basic Barbell Lifts Seminar

Jake Articles, Events

RVA Performance Training is hosting our first Basic Barbell Lifts seminar with Chris Lawyer.

A large majority of any solid training program will likely come from what has come to be referred to as the slow lifts: the Press, Back Squat, Bench Press, Deadlift and their variations. Despite their apparent simplicity when compared to the Olympic lifts, the basic barbell lifts require practice, instruction, and a solid understanding of the lift’s mechanics to best apply them to your own training.

Spend a Saturday with experienced strength coach Chris Lawyer to improve both your understanding and performance of these lifts.

The seminar will cover:

Shoulder Press
Back Squat

Seminar will include in-depth discussion on basic performance of the lifts, mechanics, and error correction. Seminar will be a combined lecture/lift format; all attendees will lift throughout the seminar under Chris’ supervision and receive coaching on how to improve your lifts.


January 14th, 10am-3:30pm, with a 1 hour lunch


$40 ($30 until 12/15)
