Do you aspire to get serious enough about Olympic lifting that you need to use kilo plates? You’re in luck. The start date of Next Level Weightlifting Club’s late morning cycle has been pushed back to this Friday, so you have more time to register!
LATE MORNING NEXT LEVEL WEIGHTLIFTING CYCLE: REGISTER NOW!
Next Level Weightlifting Cycle is an Olympic lifting program focused on the development of the Snatch, the Clean, and the Jerk. Think of it as an Olympic lifting version of our popular Starting Strength Program cycles. During this 8 week cycle led by Coach Frank Murray, there will be a heavy focus on strength and technique. Outside of the Olympic lifts, we will train the Squat, Press, and Deadlift to develop the prerequisite strength required to lift big!
Weightlifting is more than just technique. It is the combination of strength, mobility, coordination, and power. We will work to enhance all of these abilities to maximize the Olympic lifts as well as overall fitness.
The benefit of Next Level Weightlifting Cycle that it trains a wide range of modalities. The skills and strength developed over these 8 weeks will transfer directly to CrossFit and your overall fitness.
