I am excited to announce that I will be delivering a one-day seminar, “Optimizing the Big 3″ along with fellow Cressey Sport Performance Coach Tony Bonvechio. This event is a great chance for strength and conditioning professionals, as well as for athletes who have an interest in improving the squat, bench press, and deadlift.
“Optimizing the Big Three” is a one-day seminar geared towards those looking to improve the squat, bench press, and deadlift.
Split into both a lecture and hands on format, the event will provide attendees with practical coaching on the technique of the classic power lifts. Additionally, we will cover valuable information on how to specialize movement preparation, utilize supplementary movements, and organize training around a central focus: improved strength in these “big three” movements. Furthermore, we will touch upon the lessons learned in preparation for your first few meets, to help you navigate everything from equipment selection, to meet-day logistics.
The value in learning from us is a matter of perspective. We will effectively shed light on how applied movement principles, athletic performance modalities, and anecdotal evidence from working with a wide variety of different populations can aid one main goal; optimizing the technique, health, and improvements in strength of amateur lifters.
9:00-11:00AM: Maximal Strength Training Theory – The main lecture of the day will be focused on the principles of how to assess where you (or your athletes) are in terms of training history and how that determines what kind of training loads should be used. Furthermore, this lecture will focus on principles of managing stressors and how to assign proper loading parameters for different level lifters. Last will be a discussion of the cornerstones of training vs. planning as well as a look at the commonalities and differences of different training approaches.
11:00AM-12:00PM: Managing the Strength Athlete: Assessing and Meeting the Demands of the Lifter – Learn what demands a high amount of volume in the classic lifts puts on the body; how to assess for it in others and yourself; and what you can do to manage the stress associated with these demands.

On the fence? Here is what people have been saying:
Greg Robins has constructed one of the most comprehensive seminars that I have ever attended. I’ve had the opportunity to not only attend The Big 3, but host it at my gym as well. I truly believe that every coach and/or individual who’s interested in mastering the squat, bench, and deadlift absolutely must attend this workshop. Greg is loaded with knowledge and learning directly from him has greatly impacted my ability to coach my clients and athletes. – Chris Semick, Co-Owner War Horse Barbell, Philadelphia PA
Attending the Big 3 Workshop with Greg Robins and Tony Bonvechio was the best thing to happen to my barbell training. After taking close to 20+ years off from working with a barbell I decided to attend the Big 3 workshop to receive excellent coaching and guidance in training. In my experience as a healthcare provider (ATC) a strength coach and a kettlebell instructor this course has helped myself and my clients significantly. I was able to relate all the movements to rehabilitation, strength training and kettlebell training I perform with clients and this helps me to give them a better transition back to sport and training. I would happily attend this workshop again to continue to learn and dial in the Big 3 movements. Just one day with these two professionals is not enough time to soak in all the knowledge! – Eric Gahan, Co-Owner, Iron Body Studios
“Greg Robins is the epitome of high integrity, an unparalleled work ethic, and a true passion and dedication toward making those around him better. His Optimizing The Big 3 Workshop is no different. After attending this workshop while also being a personal client of Greg’s, I’ve increased numbers in all 3 lifts, and improved my overall strength by leaps and bounds in the process. Greg is the real deal. Don’t hesitate – just go.” – Matt Ibrahim, Owner Movement Resilience
