Courses versus certifications?

Courses are a full day of user instruction, perfect for beginners or for those ready to get serious about strength, but are not quite ready for the intensity of a Certification. No testing is performed.

Certifications are 2-3 days long, and will prepare you to be able to teach others these methods. Strength and technique are tested, and to an extremely high standard.

“Strength is the foundation for development of the rest of physical qualities,” categorically stated Prof. Leonid Matveev. It takes priority over all others: endurance, flexibility, etc.

Until one becomes “entry level strong”, e.g., a strict bodyweight military press for men or strict pullups for women, no priority other than strength can be justified for a healthy athlete. Science and experience have taught us that any athlete, even in ultra-endurance sports, who has not built a foundation of strength will fail to reach his or her potential.

Strength has been compared to a glass that can be filled with other qualities. The larger the glass, the more endurance, sport skill, fat loss, etc. can hold.

Be what you choose to be.

But be Strong First.
