Barbell Academy: The Principles Course

The Principles Course takes the basic knowledge learned in Coaching 101 (a prerequisite to The Principles Course) to a deeper level. While open and beneficial to anyone who wants to learn more, the content included in the Principles Course is designed specifically to help the aspiring barbell strength coach design and direct a basic barbell strength program.

Whether you are looking for the knowledge and confidence to coach others effectively or seeking to understand better the “hows” and “whys” of your own training, the Principles Course will expose you to the foundational areas of barbell training.

  • Anatomy

  • Physiology

  • Biomechanics

  • Programming

  • Lift Analysis

As an enthusiast and lifter who signed up for this course, I would highly encourage others like myself to take it. Even though I have been lifting for eight years, I learned a lot of information that helped me to better understand the dynamics of the lifts and how to critique and properly execute them. There are so many people out there who do not understand barbell training. This course is an excellent solution to that problem. It was highly informative, fun, and will help me be a better lifter.

I was never a “Study” guy, but the Principles Course had me coming back and back again… I sometimes had to force myself to NOT just plow through the material. There is no other course I’ve ever taken that has provided me with so much useful information. There wasn’t really anything I could consider “filler” information, everything was useful in one way or another. Some of the information I haven’t even considered before until I saw it here. This was truly a knock out of the park.
