The Outlaw Way program is built around a hierarchical movement structure which places Olympic Weightlifting (along with Gymnastics skills) at the top of the developmental food chain. We believe weightlifting is not only important for our sport – nearly 50% of the point value for the last four Games seasons has been from WL movements or accessories – but we believe it is the single greatest developer of neuromotor processing, utilization of contractile potential, and overall coordination under load. In other words – athleticism. That athleticism is especially important in a sport which rewards those who are proficient with a barbell with half of its total points.The goal of the Outlaw Barbell Training Camps is to continue the weightlifting education started during previous camps, but dig far deeper into the lifts, the science, the accessories, and the programming needed to cue, coach, and develop successful lifters. The Outlaw BB camps will be presented by 2015 & 2013 National Champion, 3x World Team member, and Outlaw Barbell Head Coach – Jared Fleming. Jared has been coached by multiple world level coaches, has trained with Olympians, and has competed against some of the best international lifters throughout his career. This is not a PVC and basic drills seminar. It is a course that will provide new depth and insight into what good technique actually is, how to coach it, and the accessories or positional work which develops it. Jared and David will also be covering specific topics about programming, mobility for the lifts, how to break down video, biomechanic differences in lifters, meet management, and almost anything else you can think of related to weightlifting.The Snatch and Clean & Jerk will be the clear focus of the Outlaw Barbell Training Camps, but here are some other highlights you can expect:-Hands on sessions taking every attendee through the correct positions at every point for the Snatch and Clean & Jerk.-Instruction on all accessory movements, including: hang positions, Jerk specific drills, pulls, and others.-Break down of the essential angles, trajectories, and bar track for excellence in technique. With instruction on how to utilize these to analyze your athletes or yourself.-Biomechanic discussion to focus on the differences in setup and positions for every body type.-Video analysis of lifts for every attendee, and feedback for how to improve.-Examples of Weightlifting templates, and instruction on how to program for different level lifters/athletes.-Max out sessions (aka “bro-sessions”), with instruction on how to plan lifts and jumps.Who should come?Anyone who is instructing or participating in weightlifting at any level. This includes coaching clients at local affiliates, and anyone looking to gain knowledge or deeper understanding of the lifts.Do I need to be a good lifter to attend?Absolutely not. If you are inexperienced or struggling with the lifts, this is the perfect seminar for you to attend. The goal, execution, and desired outcome of the lifts will be made crystal clear to anyone of any experience level.How many attendees will there be? Will I get personal attention?We are limiting the Outlaw Barbell Training Camps to twenty attendees to allow for quality of instruction, and a more intimate environment. This will allow Jared to learn each athletes tendencies and issues, and give them a chance to address your specific issues. *In cases of high demand camps may surpass 20 attendees but another elite coach will also attend to make sure 1 on 1 attention remains high.
Learn to perform Botox injections and other aesthetic procedures during Empire Medical Training's weekend training programs. For your convenience, we have scheduled the Complete Botox Training, the Dermal Filler and Facial Aesthetics workshops on consecutive days over a weekend. These educational courses are the very basis for every aesthetics practice. Overview: The Botox Training workshop is very complete and all inclusive and created so that you can immediately begin performing these techniques on your own. The general format of the workshop is to receive very detailed lectures in the morning followed by intensive hands on training in the afternoon. The workshop gives you the opportunity to use real Botulinum Toxin products on actual live volunteers. In fact, a good percentage of your tuition is used to purchase these supplies as well as all the medicines you will be using. Attendees are also welcome to bring along a friend or companion if you choose to use them for your injections. (Why not, they are receiving FREE injections. We never charge our volunteers). Workshop Topics: You will learn all the protocols associated with each of the Botulinum Toxin Type A products such as Botox Cosmetic as well as the newer, highly effective Xeomin and Dysport products. To operate a successful aesthetic practice it is important to know about and be able to utilize the different products your patients may ask for. Each will be available and used during the hands on portion of the class so you can decide on your own which Botulinum product will best suit your practice objectives. Comprehensive Training and Certification: This is a certification program intended only for Physicians and qualified health care practitioners. After completion of the course and demonstration of proficiency, you will receive your certification and course certificate. Attendees also have the option to receive their certificate framed in an attractive wood and metal plaque. Empire provides you with everything needed to perform Botox injections safely and correctly in your practice so that you will not only become certified to perform Botox injections, but will also gain a level of confidence working on your own patients. Empire has successfully graduated thousands of medical professionals over the past 17 years and helped many of them set up their own Aesthetic practices as well.

Improved techniques, new, safer sclerosing agents, and high patient demand for in-office aesthetic procedures makes Sclerotherapy Training for nurses and physicians a must for any physician practice wishing to expand their services. Over 80 million Americans suffer with unsightly venous disease and the vast majority (75%) of these is cosmetic in nature which you will understand and be able to treat after completing our training. Visible veins give the impression of age and poor health and though many people wish to receive treatment, they are unaware of the safety, effectiveness, and lack of discomfort associated with newer sclerotherapy methods. Sclerotherapy by injection uses small amounts of detergent solutions to irritate the vein walls and achieve ultimate closure of the unwanted vein. Cosmetic laser centers and vein clinics perform these procedures not only because they are lucrative and simple to perform, but also because their patients receive impressive results using both laser vein therapies and traditional sclerotherapy using FDA approved detergent sclerosants. Our comprehensive sclerotherapy training will take you from the prospective patient through the consultation process as well as teach you the latest techniques and protocols used today.
