Last week we had the privilege of hosting Andre Benoit’s Hypertrophy Academy at our gym in Lawrence, KS.
Andre is a two-time Olympian competing in the 1988 and 1992 Olympic games in the luge, was as an assistant coach at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, and served as the strength and conditioning coach for the Canadian national team. Andre has also coached over 30 athletes in different Olympic disciplines as well as professional athletes from the NFL, CFL, NHL, and Track and Field.
Over a 4-day period Andre taught his Hypertrophy and Energy System Academies. These courses covered training theory for beginner and advanced trainees, proper core training, shoulder health and training, energy system training for fat loss and conditioning, and how to perform a thorough structural screening to identify potential injuries before they occur.
Andre is considered to be a leading expert on hypertrophy and performance training. He is a Poliquin Level 5 Coach and we were glad to have him. Check out some of the pictures from the event.
