Awesome Lessons at Total Performance Sports

As you might already know, Chad Wesley Smith is coming to TPS March 24/25, 2012 for a two-day Juggernaut Method seminar. This is going to be one of the best seminars that we have ever had. Chad is one of the strongest people that I have ever met, and I have met a bunch. He is also incredibly explosive and more importantly, he understands how to teach you to be stronger and more explosive.

I strongly encourage everyone to attend this, from high school athletes, to coaches and trainers, to everyday gym-goers. Everyone will learn more than they paid for at this.

When I was learning how to lift, all we had was bodybuilding magazines, a few books and that was about it. Now we have the ability to bring in the most successful lifters and coaches and learn from them. This was completely unheard of 30 years ago. If you were lucky, like I was, you found out about the Russian methods and tracked down those books, or you had someone teach you that knew what they were doing. I was the annoying kid in the gym asking all the strongest guys for tips. Lucky for me, they were also great lifters. Now, I find the best lifters and coaches and bring them to you so that you can learn from them. Take advantage of this.

To the parents of high school athletes: sign your kids up for this. If they are lucky they have a coach who knows what to do and teaches them right. Chances are they don’t. At worst, they go to the gym unsupervised and design their own program, which is probably centered around benching as heavy as they can all the time with terrible form. Give them the gift of knowledge and form a World Champion. It will last a lifetime and set them up for success, not just in the weight room, but in life. Lessons learned under the bar are ones that stay with you. If you don’t know what I mean, I highly suggest that you read Dave Tates’ Book, Under the Bar. You can get it at TPS or on

The Juggernaut Method is taking the training world by storm. Why? Because it works. Raw training is the best way to get strong. Even if you use powerlifting gear, raw training will make your equipped lifts go up. This seminar is not just for powerlifters.

Trainers, coaches, athletes and novices to the weight room will all benefit from learning how to properly lift RAW.

Chad knows a thing or two about getting you strong. Chad has some very impressive accomplishments to his credit, including:

Squat-905, American Record

Bench Press-515




Shot Put-PR-63'10.25"

He is also the two time NAIA National Champion.

In this seminar, Chad will cover:

Lecture Topics:

Organizing a Dynamic Warmup

Organizing High Stress CNS Activity into the Training Cycle/Week

Periodizing Jump training volume/type throughout the offseason

Periodizing Sprint training volume/type throughout the offseason

Periodizing Throwing training volume/type throughout the offseason

Gym Day:

I am 100% confident that this seminar will sell out. It is limited to 25 people. We are keeping the attendance low so that everyone can get individual attention form Chad and all the coaches.
