The Workshop:

This is a comprehensive olympic lifting workshop focusing on overhead movement patterns, squats, and bar flow; A strong emphasis on the following movements: the Snatch, Clean & Jerk

Allow me to set the tone by asking a few questions …

  • Are you interested in Barbell movements, but shy away from them due to mobility restrictions?
  • Have you avoided using the barbell in your training due to lack of knowledge and coaching in this area?
  • Have you been Olympic lifting for months, maybe even years, and hit a plateau?
  • Have you seen people does these lifts and thought, “that looks cool, I wish I knew how to do that”…

If you answered “Yes” to any of the above scenarios, then I highly recommend joining us!

The Goal:

  • Work towards full execution of the barbell movements
  • Clean up any bad habits we might have picked up
  • Build confidence in the overhead position
  • Build confidence  getting under the bar
  • Learn proper mobility drills to fine tune your overhead position
  • Learn how to move more freely, perform better, and to minimize any risk of injury

* If comfortable, athletes will try to build to max attempts OR we will continue to focus on breaking down positions to reinforce movement patterns in the full Olympic lifts.

  • Whatever you’d typically work out in!
  • If you have weightlifting shoes, feel free to bring them. If not, flat bottom athletic shoes will be just fine.
