“When lifters repeatedly use the same simple method of training to raise their strength level, they will eventually stall. Like the scholar who must utilize many sources of information to achieve a higher level of knowledge, the lifter must incorporate new and more difficult exercises to raise their standards.” – Louie Simmons (of Westside Barbell)
The CrossFit Woodbridge Strong Side Powerlifting Seminar is a 7 week seminar that focuses on the development of strength and speed in the powerlifts, squat, deadlift, and bench press. Two classes a week, Tuesday and Thursday(morning and evening options), which will use the Westside Barbell Conjugate Method which features a rotating set of maximum effort and dynamic effort days. Maximum effort days feature a maximum weight lift followed by accessory lifts and core strengthening exercises. Dynamic effort days include a percentage weight lift using accommodating resistance, bands and chains, to add speed to your lifts and is followed by accessory lifts and core strengthening exercises. **This seminar will be capped at 12 athletes per session.
The purpose of the Conjugate program is to handle max lifts while allowing for ample recovery, in turn avoiding overtraining the C.N.S. (Central Nervous System). The “Conjugate Method” does this by using a complex method of rotating special exercises that are close in nature (for purposes of staying true to Westside) to the power lifts. Training with this method will increase strength relative to the classic lifts (Squat, Press, Deadlift) and help perfect coordination, and in turn; advance one’s technical skills.
