The new OPEX strength course is simple and concise on the factors that as coaches we should be considering when approaching the strength lifecycle of the people we have in front of us. It is a vast subject so it is often very easy to get overwhelmed by this and where we should start with an individual. This course simplifies the process to help you understand actually what is essential to help people get stronger over a lifetime.
The Programming: Strength course is a fantastic resource for any coach looking to understand strength development. Anyone can make a new client stronger initially with linear progression, but that only works until it doesn’t… Kevin and Keegan do a phenomenal job of explaining how to set someone up to get stronger for a lifetime. They teach solid movement patterns through effective cueing, take the “guesswork” out of accessory work, and clearly define the evolution of program design for a beginner to advanced lifter with longevity in mind.
The Programming: Strength course is a refreshing take on building strength. Other strength education is derived from the sport of powerlifting, which is focused on lifting the most weight on competition day, and not how to keep clients healthy and lifting for a lifetime. This course lays out the progression from the very first day under the bar, to building a base of great movement, to reaching strength potential, and finally resisting decline for as long as possible. For the coach who respects the power of the iron and wants to wield it to create resilience, longevity, and an impressive back squat, Programming: Strength is your course.
The Programming Strength Course has been great. The content is high quality & presented in a way that is easy to follow/understand. This course has provided me with new information & refreshers on the principles behind strength training and how to properly assess movement in order to build strength for any client. As coaches, it’s our responsibility to always explore, learn, and experience new information and I felt this course has helped me expand my knowledge base which helps me refine and add to my current skill set. For me, anything that can help me “level up” as a coach is invaluable. I would recommend this course for coaches who are looking to build on their current coaching practice and gain a deeper understanding of how to properly build strength for clients on an individual basis.
I also really enjoyed Kevin and Keegan as the instructors. I felt their expertise in strength training translated throughout the course in a way that provided me with a fresh perspective and I appreciated that they were “brought in” to help create this course.
Hearing Kevin and Keegan’s descriptions of how movement is used for proper strength development really made sense. I took away great principles for selecting the appropriate movements to help people get strong for a lifetime. It’s the intricacies of movement selection that really can make a difference for the individual. Anyone attending the live workshop or taking this course online will take away key principles that can work for any individual in front of them.
