On Tuesday 26th & Wednesday 27th September 2017 we held two squat clinics with Tom Platz.
A once in a lifetime opportunity …
This was a 5 hour in-depth squat clinic consisting of 50% class room and 50% practical.
Trainers learnt everything they needed to know to perform the ultimate squat from the man himself, the workshop included
This was NOT your NORMAL workshop!!!
Tom Platz began his competitive bodybuilding career in the 1973 Mr. Adonis competition. He competed as an amateur until he won the 1978 World Amateur Championships middleweight division. In 1978 and after completing his degree at Wayne State University, he moved to California. He arrived there with $50 and a dream to win Mr. Olympia. For the following nine years Platz competed as a professional, aiming for Mr. Olympia. Though Platz never took first at the Olympia competition, he had a string of top ten finishes, with a third position in 1981 being his best.
Platz became famous for his remarkable leg development. He developed a high intensity, high volume method of leg training, which led to his unparalleled size and definition for his time. Regardless of what was found lacking elsewhere, it is still widely claimed in bodybuilding that Platz holds the mark for the best legs of all time.
Tom Platz retired from professional bodybuilding competition in 1987 and did a ‘Comeback’ in 1995 when he was awarded Honorary Mr. America. He still promotes the sport wholeheartedly.
Tom says, “I just want to give back to the sport I love which has been really great to me.”
