Weightlifting 101 Training Camp

The training camp consists of one group of up to twelwe people, which is run through two to three hard training sessions from Thursday to Sunday. The training starts early in the morning and continue to the afternoon with scheduled breaks for food and recovery. The exact timetable varies depending on the gym hosting the camp and the exact program is not revealed in advance as every group of participants is different from one another and thereby neccessitates different programming and individuel adjustments.

The price of participation is 500 euros paid via PayPal and the participant is himself/herself responsible for accommodation, transportation and food.

When the camp is fully booked a Facebook group message will be created by Erik Lau Kelner of Weightlifting 101 and all the participants added and asked to post their email address so a PayPal invoice can be send to them. The participant confirms his/her participation by paying the invoice, which has a deadline of ten days. There is a strict no-refunds policy.  

If you have never attended a Weightlifting101 Training Camp before this is the place to start. The overwhelming focus in this camp is on identifying technical mistakes and on correcting them using the Weightlifting101 Method and to instill discipline and work ethics so as to reap the full benefits of each session.

To participate you need good command of the English language; to be injury free and able to do all weightlifting exercises without accompanying pain and to not be a beginner as the camp calls for hard work that you need to be conditioned for. The most important criteria for participation is coachability, ie. your attitude. It’s paramount that you come to learn and to work hard in order to improve. This training camp is heavily oriented on learning by doing and only a limited amount of time will be spend talking about theory.

If you are interested in attending, please have a look at the Training Camp Calendar and send an email to info@weightlifting101.net stating the specific camp you would like to attend along with your name, gender, age and 1RM snatch and clean & jerk.

If a particular camp is fully booked you can still write an email and get on the waiting list in which case you’ll be notified if a spot becomes available.

Weightlifting101 Training Camp - Advanced is for the athlete that have already attended at least one training camp of mine in the past and is looking to take it to the next level. In this camp the technical level is higher; the participants are familiar with my style of coaching and my technical vision; they are all hard workers and hungry for improving and testing themselves. The higher level among the participants allow for more work to be done and for the programming to be both heavier and more technically challenging than in a regular camp where the focus is on the basics.

Hosting a Training Camp

Hosting a Weightlifting 101 Training Camp is the ideal solution if you prefer a camp close to home but in order to host it you need to have twelve participants that meet the requirements listed below:

To participate you need good command of the English language; to be injury free and able to do all weightlifting exercises without accompanying pain and to not be a beginner as the camp calls for hard work that you need to be conditioned for. The most important criteria for participation is coachability, ie. your attitude. It’s paramount that you come to learn and to work hard in order to improve. This training camp is heavily oriented on learning by doing and only a limited amount of time will be spend talking about theory.

The participants are run through two to three hard training sessions from Thursday to Sunday. The price of participation is 500 euros paid via PayPal and each participant is responsible for accommodation, transportation and food. For hosting and organising the camp one free spot goes to the gym or organiser, which can be used for participation, be sold or given away but whoever takes the free spot must meet the requirements for participation.

When the camp is fully booked a Facebook group message will be created by Erik Lau Kelner of Weightlifting 101 and all the participants added and asked to post their email address so a PayPal invoice can be send to them. The participant confirms his/her participation by paying the invoice, which has a deadline of ten days. There is a strict no-refunds policy.  

Here is an example of the schedule but it can be changed to accommodate opening hours and classes at the gym.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday:

Session 1: 10-12:00.

Session 2: 13:00-14:30.

Session 3: 15:30-17:00.

The best solution, however, is for us to have our own area from morning to afternoon without any interruptions or classes. This allow for more flexibility in my coaching and will benefit the participants greatly. This is not always possible, of course, so if need be we will design the best schedule to accommodate everyone involved.

In order to host the camp it must be possible to drop weights at all hours of the day and preferably have access to technique bars as well as 15kg and 20kg bars.

If you are interested in hosting a training camp at your box or if you have any questions, please send an email to info@weightlifting101.net.
