More info about the presentations
Current Theories in Auto-Regulation: Auto-Regulation is the key to any good long-term training program, but it's difficult to do and hard to know if you get it right. In this presentation, Mike Tuchscherer will present on the current methods and techniques employed by top RTS lifters to ensure every day's training is maximized. Coach Mike has been consistently honing and developing auto-regulatory techniques for 10 years and is the author of the RTS Manual, which has revolutionized the way RPE is used for strength athletes.

Winning the Mental Game: Everyone says that mental preparation is crucial for athletes, but what have you done to prepare lately? Twenty one (21!) time national champion and three time world champion Sioux-z Hartwig-Gary will share with you her secrets of mental preparation in this first-ever seminar experience. This will be a detailed and practical presentation on how you can improve your mental game to make yourself a better lifter!

DUP (Daily Undulating Periodization) Models: Have you ever wondered how to sequence your training day? Which should be heavy? Which should be light? What role does power training have in strength sports? Dr Michael Zourdos will answer those questions and others in his presentation on DUP Models. He will present information that is grounded in real science and tempered with the experience of a successful coach. Learning how to use Daily Undulating Periodization in your training will help improve it's effectiveness and get you back to setting PR's.

Planning a Training Cycle: Many people conduct poorly planned training -- not for lack of knowledge, but for lack of process. In this presentation, Mike Tuchscherer will walk you through the process he uses to custom build training programs for Team RTS athletes. This presentation will focus less on periodization theory and models which is often hard to apply, but instead will focus on how to put those models and theories into practice.

Applying Science to Attempt Selection: All the strength in the world doesn't matter if you can't display it on the platform. Multi-time international US team coach Matt Gary will show you the best ways to make sure your strength is displayed when it counts. His claims are thoroughly backed up by hours and hours of painstaking statistical research. Applying the lessons presented here is the easiest and most direct way to make an immediate positive impact on your total!

Daily Maximal Squatting: Daily maximal training has had a resurgence in popularity in recent years. But is it really a valid method or is it just industry hype? Dr Mike Zourdos will share his personal experiences with daily maximum squatting (with many streaks lasting more than 90 days in a row). Additionally, he will provide his expert opinion on the rationale of it's benefits and limitations. Special attention will be given to what the current body of scientific evidence suggests as well.

Coaching the Lifts (pt 1 and 2): Lifting maximal weights becomes unnecessarily more difficult and dangerous if your technique is poor. What's more, proper technique must be individualized to fit the unique leverages of each individual. In this hands-on presentation, Coach Matt Gary will help you understand why certain techniques allow you to lift more weight. Special attention will also be paid to proper execution and customization of technique for each lift.

Debate on the value of assistance exercise: In what promises to be an exciting and educational conclusion to the weekend, two industry experts, Mike Tuchscherer and Dr Michael Zourdos will debate the role that assistance exercises should play in the training program of a Powerlifter. This will be a structured debate that promises to inform as well as entertain. In seeing both sides of this argument, attendees can gain a better understanding of the principles that guide successful training programs -- regardless of which side one agrees with!

This is an event that is sure to increase your total! Check out what one attendee had to say about another RTS Seminar!
I've always had a good classroom learning style, so I was optimistic that the July Orlando Seminar would be a good experience for me. Its turned out to be more than I could have imagined!

Just 5 weeks after the seminar I competed at the USAPL Mid Atlantic and had a 15 lb squat pr and a 20 lb meet pr. Ten weeks later, I (just) competed at my home gym in the Brute Strength Gym Halloween Howl and had another 15 lb squat pr, a 25 lb deadlift pr and a 50 lb total pr. That's 70 lbs on my total in 15 weeks since the seminar.

I'm at a loss to tell you how happy I am. I credit the the full experience of the seminar with this surge in my training results. Thank you and Reactive Training Systems for making this possible. And please let me know when the next seminar is scheduled.
