I’m pleased to announce that The Arsenal home of will be hosting an MDUSA Olympic Lifting seminar on Saturday November 22nd. The event will run from 9 AM – 5 PM with a 45 minute lunch break. The Coach/Athlete who will be leading this seminar is MDUSA Athlete Matt Bergeron:
Matt was invited to join Team MDUSA in April 2013. Matt grew up swimming competitively for 13 years. While obtaining his undergrad degree in Applied Exercise Science, Matt started cheerleading for Ball State. He continued to cheer while earning his Masters degree in Sports Performance. The strength and conditioning program for cheerleading introduced Matt to Olympic weightlifting.Matt follows Team MDUSA’s training program, which consists of 9 training sessions a week. Matt focuses on the two main Olympic lifts and their different variations as well as a lot of squatting and pressing. His favorite lift is the snatch while his least favorite lift is the press from the split position.
This clinic is designed to take your lifts and technique to the next level. The whole day clinic will focus on the following:
- Snatch, clean and jerk
- Important aspects of weightlifting training
- Teaching a whole year worth of programming at MuscleDriverUSA
- Auxiliary work
- And tips to improve weightlifting performance with programs designed by Glenn Pendlay, Don McCauley and Travis Mash
Anyone who signs up by Friday November 7th will receive 2 months free video analysis by Matt! This is a $50 per month service!
We will be limiting this opportunity to 20 athletes (this includes Arsenal staff) so be quick on the trigger getting signed up. If this event is as well attended as we expect, be ready for many more in-house seminars in the upcoming year. Attendance will be exclusive to members through Saturday of this week, and then open to the general public if we have not sold out. Consider this a massive accelerator to those of our athletes looking to get significantly more efficient and improve your mechanics in these difficult lifts.
