Let’s Lift!

What?  A 5 week Olympic Lifting training program. If you want to get better at your technique, get stronger, and improve at CrossFit, you need to spend some time focusing on your Olympic Lifts. Competitive weightlifter, Olympic Lifting and CrossFit Coach, Greg Mings, will be teaching the course.

When? This course will run from April 23 – May 21.  Sundays at 11:00am.

How much? $60. Pay through WODTogether to reserve your spot.

Who should attend?

Anyone!!! This class is open to anyone who is interested in learning or improving the Olympic Lifts. If you have been participating in CrossFit for 5 days or five years this class will benefit your lifts. Class size is limited to 12 to allow individual instruction and correction.

What can I expect to work on?

The class and program will focus on the two main lifts; the Snatch and Clean and Jerk. There will be work to improve flexibility and range of motion. There will be an emphasis on positional strength. There will be programmed accessory movements with an aim to increase strength in the core and posterior chain. In addition to the classic two lifts there will be a focus on lifts that will improve your strength in these lifts. (squatting, presses and pulls)

I already know the lifts why should I take this class?

Olympic lifters spend their days working on their lifts constantly chasing perfection. Everyone can benefit from taking some time to work on his or her technique in a controlled environment. The lifts will be taken apart and correction will be made based on the athlete’s performance, mobility and flexibility. Minor technical changes in your lifts will translate to bigger numbers.

How will training these lifts benefit me?

Training in theses lifts will help your overall fitness. You will be stronger and faster in anything you do.

So what is it about the Olympic lifts that works such magic on the human body?

Most simply, they engage nearly all of your muscles to move weights farther and faster than conventional exercises. In fact, each repetition takes only a second or two from start to finish, which allows you to target your fast-twitch muscle fibers.

Can I still take my regular CrossFit classes if I start this five-week program?

​ABSOLUTELY!!! This program is meant to supplement your regular training. We will be utilizing the strength that’s already programmed through the CrossFit classes in this program. Coach will discuss with the class how to train smart in this 5-week period to get the most out of the program in combination with CrossFit classes.
