To address a few frequently asked questions regarding our new Olympic lifting class:
1) the class will focus on the technical aspects of the snatch and clean & jerk, as well as their many variations
2) this is a stand-alone class, not meant to be piggybacked on top of a regular CF class. The oly lifts require energy and focus that may be lacking following a regular class. In addition to technique work, you can expect to move some heavy (relative to your ability) weights, and potentially some heavy (again relative) pulls and squats. We will also occasionally perform some oly based WODs (think “Grace” or “Isabel”).
3) the Tuesday night and Friday morning classes will be the same, so if you missed it on Tuesday then Friday is a chance to make it up. You are more than welcome to attend both but understand that the content will not be different. We will also continue to program oly lifting at least weekly in our regular classes. Ex: If the oly class focus is on the clean for a given week, then we will work on snatches or jerks in the regular class.
Hope this helps clear up a few things. Tonight we’ll talk a bit about the format of the class, then get to work on this week’s focus: split jerk. See you at the box(0) Comment »
