2018 Bruce Baumgartner’s Heavyweight School

1 2 3

JULY 1 – JULY 5, 2018

• This special heavyweight camp will feature many of the top heavyweights in the country. You will receive instruction from the top heavyweights of all time and current stars. Don’t miss the chance to learn from this elite group.

• To separate the novice from the more experienced “big boys” and provide a more appropriate level of instruction, a special group for “beginner” heavyweight’s – starting at 7th grade and up is being implemented.

• You will receive outstanding attention with an ideal camper-to-clinician ratio (approximately 10 to 1) and receive plenty of individual instruction. The camp is open to those who weigh more than 180 pounds. We will show tips and techniques that allow upperweights and heavyweights to accomplish their goals. THE FIRST AND BEST HEAVYWEIGHT CAMP!

• This one week camp will stress technique, weight lifting, proper diet and nutrition, strategies and techniques that have been proven successful for all heavyweights. You will learn how to prepare and train yourself to dominate during the next season from Olympians, National Champions and All-Americans.

Numerous High School State Champions and Place Winners have attended this camp.
