Alex Parry, MSc, BA

I’ve been working within powerlifting and strength & conditioning for around a decade, coaching recreational through to senior international athletes across a range of sports.  I’ve supported two major universities and three national talent pathways.

Alongside this I work as a tutor and educator for British Weightlifting, was Head Coach of Yorkshire Barbell Club and Outlift Powerlifting Club, and work as an assistant Lecturer at the University of Hull, specialising in Strength Coach-Athlete Relationships.

How it works

Here’s a step by step explanation of what happens when you choose to sign up for online powerlifting coaching

1) Info gathering

Great powerlifting programmes require high-quality information, so we’ll start by discussing your goals, training history, workout frequency etc.  I’ll also ask you to send me a few videos of you performing squat, bench, deadlift and close variations for technique assessment.

3) Train & Adapt

Each training session you’ll record key performance data such as weight and reps, as well as fatigue.  I’ll then review all your data and adapt your powerlifting programme for the following week to keep you performing at your maximum potential whilst moving towards bigger numbers in the squat, bench and deadlift.

2) 1:1 Support

We’ll start each week with a check-in, where we set your focus points for the week.  Throughout the week, you’ll have access to me through WhatsApp, where you can ask questions, as well as send powerlifting videos for feedback.  We then round the week off with a review check-in on the friday.

3) Train & Adapt

Each training session you’ll record key performance data such as weight and reps, as well as fatigue.  I’ll then review all your data and adapt your powerlifting programme for the following week to keep you performing at your maximum potential whilst moving towards bigger numbers in the squat, bench and deadlift.
