Those who want to learn proper pumping iron can take in a weightlifting camp today and tomorrow at the Redeemer Community Church, 9230 Ridge Road, New Port Richey.
River Ridge High School girls weightlifting coach Mike DeGennaro and international weightlifting coach Danny Camargo will put on the 2012 Florida Weightlifting Federation Camp Wednesday and Thursday, July 19 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
It is open to both boys and girls and the cost is $100.
Campers will learn how to be stronger, faster and more flexible. The lifters will learn proper technique on the snatch and clean and jerk.
DeGennaro has coached high school weightlifting for 26 years. His River Ridge High girls team won the Sunshine Athletic Conference in 2012. He is a certified USA coach.
His current star, Alexis LiCalsi, recently won her second national lifting title. The River Ridge High senior was second in the state in the 139-pound class at the FHSAA State Meet in Kissimmee. She set a state record in the clean and jerk with a 195-pound lift.
