Lifting Technique

Prevent injury while learning how to establish correct Lifting Techniques

Consultations are aimed to evaluate and correct lifting technique through a variety of Olympic and Core lifts performed as a part of the client’s strength program. The program provides the client with the relevant education to lift with safety and confidence. It allows the client to work efficiently towards achieving their desired goals. Individual recommendations are also made to any variations and progressions of specific lifts that might suit the individuals training age and sport specific requirements. The major benefit of the lifting program is establishing correct and efficient movement patterns in order to prevent the occurrence of injury while allowing optimal improvements in strength and power.

The lifting program can be useful for a wide range of clients from any fitness level through to elite sports people. Learning correct and efficient lifting technique is extremely beneficial during the early stages of an individual’s athletic development and it is our belief every school based athlete benefits enormously in learning correct, safe lifting technique. This program is a great tool for developing athletes but is also beneficial for experienced clients to reaffirm lifting technique and alter incorrect habits that the individual may not be aware of.
