"I recently saw Matt Poe and was able to hear him in Boston last year. Being on the front page of the NEW YORK TIMES was long overdue. I have never heard anyone lecture on the biomechanics behind speed development as Matt Poe presents this science. He is quite a student and a showman."....Darrick Sencinello, PHD Biomechanics.
"This was my last exercise on a 21 set deadlift day using free weights. I ended with lifting my trailer. My lower back was shot. Lifting a trailer off the ground is a good exercise for increasing the time it takes to go from hip extension to hip flexion. This hip speed through this range of motion is the key to a great start in sprinting and a powerful transition into your flight stage"...Coach Poe

ADVANCED INSTITUTE OF POWERLIFTING AND BODYBUILDING
SEMINAR A SUCCESS!!!!
"Talk about POWER, Ed Coan, Matt Poe, and Wade Hooper looked unstopable. I would hate to have to compete against them. They are so focused, confident, and their techniques are perfect. I have never seen anyone press overhead as Matt Poe did.
Wade Hooper (167 pounds) reps 500 pounds RAW with Joe Majors as the head spotter.
"I could not believe I was in the same room with the strongest man to ever live and the greatest POWER LIFTER OF ALL TIMES----ED COAN. He was so nice, but you could tell he owned the weights, especially when he was toying around with the deadlift. He is a true champ..."----Visitor of site---Cynthia Shaw----Atlanta, GA.
"Being a lighter lifter myself, seeing Wade Hooper was incredible. His form was perfect and his demonstration of a 500 squat and a 400 bench was done with such ease that I now know I have a chance to follow in his footsteps weighing 167 pounds---Visitor of site---Carter Jenson---Ohio
"We met yesterday at the seminar in Atlanta. I'm the guy that was wearing
the longsleeve gray shirt and asking too many questions.
I didn't say much during your pushpress demonstration, but just quietly
took some mental notes.
I tried out a few adjustments that you pointed out yesterday, especially
popping the hips forward as fast as possible. I set a 30 lb PR in my
pushpress, and got more than my bodyweight overhead for the first time
I just wanted to drop you a note and say thanks."
Visitor of site---Mike Vallotton---Douglasville,GA
