In this class, we learn and practice the olympic lifts because they improve balance, coordination, power, flexibility, timing, speed, strength, and accuracy. No other weightlifting movements are performed faster, or are more complex. As a result, there is a specific progression we follow to build our athletes up to performing the olympic lifts and these movements take time to learn. Once technique is proficient, we increase weight and reps to challenge ourselves. Many times, we’ll start you with a broomstick, teach parts of the movement, and progress to the full movement as time goes on.
