Time to Get Stronger
Weightlifting School of Sergey Bondarenko
Dear friends,

My name is Sergey Bondarenko and I am an Olympic weightlifting master of sports of international class (Russian top sports rank). Weightlifting is our family craft and legacy, my grandfather and father were both professional weightlifters and from 6 years I followed their path, which led me to Russian National Team, numerous regional records and cups and 200kg Snatch/235kg Clean & Jerk in 105kg+ weight class.

After decades of experience in weightlifting training and competing with best athletes and coaches in the world, I decided that I want to be a coach to deliver this knowledge to aspiring athletes seeking to discover the world of weightlifting.

By now, I have 5+ years of coaching career, more than 30 seminars in Russia and Europe, 10+ weightlifting camps and trainees all over the world, from USA to Australia. My methodology is basing on Russia/Soviet school of weightlifting with scientific approach to workload calculations and the richest arsenal of specific exercises to address any mistake and weakness. Dozens successful amateur and aspiring athletes brought up by me gave me the experience of precise and efficient programming work, which I now utilize to provide remote coaching opportunities.

Sergey is extremely articulate and takes the time to review videos and give easy to understand suggestions to improve technique
The cost of his coaching services was extremely fair and I received far more value from his coaching than I paid.
Sergey raised my total by 35 kilos in 18 months, and lift weights I never thought possible

Coach, Seminar Host
I am doing strength preparation for Track & Field athletes working with Olympic medals winners. My coaching methods involves use of Olympic lifts. Knowledge that I received on Sergey's seminar allowed me to enrich our team methods and exercises arsenal. I must admit that Sergey showed high level of professionalism and commitment during seminar, making sure that every athlete get enough attention and personal approach to his needs and problems.
Every trainee I take get a fully individual approach with program addressing his personal weaknesses, flaws and adjusted to his way of life, schedule and conditions. With the commitment I give to my athletes, I treat them not as customers, but as members of SB Team, where we all share one goal - pursuit for excellence in weightlifting. I never thought of making a blueprint program with my name on it and selling for money, that is why you can get a blueprint program made by me FOR FREE.
