Want to actually LEARN about strength and not just be told what to do? Have questions about what's the best way to train?
We often tell lifters to become students of the sport -- to learn all they can and get better at every aspect. Now through RTS Classroom, you can learn all the strength-producing details of the Emerging Strategies method popularized by the company that brought you RPE training. RTS Classroom is designed to help you do that. Whether you're a coach, a trainer, or just a lifter who wants to get better at coaching yourself, joining RTS Classroom is going to make you so much better at the things you do.
This course teaches you the fundamentals on how to create training ‘from the ground up in an individualized Emerging Strategies fashion. Over the course, you’ll learn how to:
- Understand the problems with traditional Periodization and how Emerging Strategies attempt to solve those problems.
- Analyze and monitor athlete response to training including the use of ‘Stress Index’ measurement.
- Use strategies and tools to help athletes benchmark their progress, improve hypertrophy, and utilize novel movement variations to target weak Range of Motion improvements.
- Write development, pivot, and maintenance cycles in order to peak you or your athletes for competition.
