The NSCA’s Foundations of Coaching Lifts: Hands-on Approach to Coaching Lift Progressions certificate course lays the groundwork for teaching athletes and clients how to properly perform the bench press, push press, power clean, and squat. This course covers exercise application, lift progressions, and coaching cues.
This course is designed for aspiring fitness professionals, sport coaches, physical education teachers, and students who have vested interest in strength and conditioning, but may not have practical coaching experience or a background in exercise science.
The Foundations of Coaching Lifts: Hands-on Approach to Coaching Lift Progressions certificate course provides a coaching and teaching model for foundational exercises commonly used in strength and conditioning. Foundations of Coaching Lifts covers the utility and application of exercises, progression from rudimentary to complex movements, basic biomechanical concepts, and teaching methods. To assume that the progressions covered in Foundations of Coaching Lifts are the only ones that are appropriate can be misleading and even dangerous; the intent of this course is not to solve every possible problem that may arise. In lieu of an endless series of standards and technicalities, coaches should be engaged in an ongoing process of learning and problem solving.
The Foundations of Coaching Lifts course is comprised of online, self-paced learning modules and two days of hands-on, active-learning. Coaching course attendees must pass both a written and performance-based assessment to obtain a course certificate.
The course will be taught by Drs. David Szymanski, Kyle Pierce, & Ben Gleason. Cost is $400 for NSCA members and $450 for non-members. Sign up using the NSCA link below.
