Oxana Slivenko and Vasiliy Polovnikov are two of the best weightlifters in the world. They’ve achieved greatness at the highest levels of national and international competition. In this unique event format, Oxana, Vasiliy, their coach Vladimir Safonov, and Nikita Durnev will share their experience and insights, demonstrate monstrously heavy lifts with awe-inspiring speed and technique, and lead you through a training session to help improve your lifts.
The first part of the event consists of a discussion panel facilitated by Sean Waxman of Waxman’s Gym. During the discussion, you can expect exclusive revelations from the lifters and coaches about world-class weightlifting, with insights about technique, training, competition, and developing a winning mindset.
Next you’ll get to see Oxana, Vasiliy, and Nikita put on a lifting exhibition, moving heavier weights faster than most of the world has ever seen in person. The discussion with them will continue while they lift.
Finally, after a brief break, for those who wish*, it’ll be your turn on the bar. Oxana, Vasiliy, Coach Safonov, and Nikita will lead you through a training session where they’ll provide you with technique and training tips to make you a better lifter. Those who wish may work up to PR attempts with the help of these coaches. After the attendee training session, we’ll all regroup for final discussion and Q & A.
* The attendee training session is optional and spots are limited. Those who do not participate in training may take a break or standby to watch (if you wish) during this time. All attendees are welcome to join for final wrap-up discussion/Q&A.
