Olympic Weightlifting Seminar by Dmitry Klokov

You will leave this class with the knowledge and skills to improve your lifting.

  • Dmitry coaches from decades of personal experience as a pro-lifter to answer your training questions.
  • When do I need to lift? How much do I need to lift? Do I also need to rest? Guess no more. Ask Dmitry Klovov directly and get no-bullshit practical advice you can use in your next workout.

Having decades of experience as a pro athlete and to have been brought up by a weightlifting champion really helps to sort out what works and what doesn’t when it comes to training. Most of us don’t have this privilege and waste precious years trying out useless methods and soon get stuck.

To assist his students avoiding such trappings, Dmitry designed a 4 hour lecture (weightlifting theory only) that precedes the practical segment of the seminar to cover the following:

  • Important training principles that will help you avoid stagnation
  • The systems that you need in place to successfully train long term
  • Exercise selection
  • Recovery
  • And More


Practice Makes Perfect. 

As you already found out, Olympic Style Weightlifting is highly technical sport. This is not novelty, as for decades coaches and scientists have been researching the optimal techniques to execute the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. In the second segment of the course Dmitry Klokov demonstrates and teaches the classic lifts fine points of technique.

This segment includes:

  • Snatch technique explanation
  • Clean and Jerk technique explanation
  • Clinic time where Dmitry directly gives you feedback on your lifts
  • Drills
  • And More
