Hi all, I’ve got a teaching module on my course which i’m basing around powerlifting - using a combination of practical and theory teaching.
The bulk of the project is a resource to aid this teaching, and it would be really good to get some opinions on what is and isn’t out there. Obviously there are numerous video channels, and paid form checking services, as well as forum communities.
The idea I have had is a portable “cheat sheet” with illustrations and form cues. Kinda like those posters you see tucked away in the stretching area of the gym, but A5 paper sized and laminated so that a student can take it with them into the gym. Idea being that someone who is new to learning the lifts can receive formal teaching, gain familiarity with the lifts, and then use my resource whenever they are in the gym without a coach to keep mental cues and tips fresh in their mind.
That being said, any other ideas would be welcome.
So just a few questions:
What would you like to see in a resource designed to aid novice powerlifting trainees in learning the lifts?
What do you feel the most important points to cover in such a resource would be?
Do you have any ideas for the format of such a resource?
Any other thoughts?
