Olympic Weight Lifting Class
We will be running a Oly Weight lifting Class every other, Tuesday at 6:30 pm for the Summer starting June 5th and depending on interest. Possibly longer. This class will only be able to have 16 people and if you do not sign in or the class is full unfortunately you may be out of luck for that class. If this class is popular we will look at expanding numbers with more coaches or an additional day.
The weight lifting class will be taught mainly by Coach Stouty & Coach Sarah.
This class will not feature a WOD or be considered a heavy class. This will be primarily drill work focusing on Clean & Jerk and Snatch. The program will be building skill for beginners, as well as fine tuning technique for the more advanced. The amount of weight on the bar will not be the focus although those who have been working at this a while will definitely have the ability to load the bar. But note this, the best Olympic weight lifters in the world warm up with a PVC and sometimes never go farther than an empty bar for more then an hour of training. If you cant sweat under a PVC then you are not doing the drills right and you need to be at this class. This is not a “Specialty Class” any membership level may sign up.
Class structure will follow a very strict regime of Mobility, Technique and Mental Focus. There will be new practices for many and I will ask you if you plan to come I expect complete focus and full participation. If you are serious about getting better at Oly lifting then you need to buy in and be willing to practice the basics and drill work over and over again. This will not be a sexy “Post your 1 RM on IG” kinda class, but I promise if you attend regularly practice the techniques and do homework you will become an efficient and strong lifter.
Looking forward to the first class this coming Tuesday. Make sure you sign in if you want a spot. As only 16 spots will be available. This also means that on the Tuesday Nights that this class is running there will not be a regular 6:30pm WOD.
