Friday: 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Olympic Lifting consists of two movements performed with a barbell. These two movements are the snatch and the clean & jerk. Our Olympic Lifting class is an opportunity to improve your technique and maybe even set a few personal records (PRs) with the snatch, clean and jerk. Our Olympic Lifting class takes a slightly different approach from our functional fitness classes, but generally follows the same structure.
Each class will begin with a proper general warmup, followed by mobility and movement instruction with a PVC pipe for the lifts we’re going to be working on that day. Then, all our athletes get out a barbell of their choice (15, 35 or 45 lbs) and we drill the movements with the empty bars. Finally, we complete the Olympic lifts, which always consists of specific movements performed on a set interval to allow for proper rest and quality lifting.
