Barbell Club – Oly

Barbell Club – Oly  

1-oly-split-jerk-682x1024Need more barbell in you life? Looking to improve your technique and become more comfortable with the technical Oly lifts?

The Oly track includes technique work combined with accessory strength and will alternate weekly between the Snatch and Clean & Jerk along with their associated accessory lifts.  This opportunity is great for those who want to spend a full hour dedicated to the most complex lifts we do in the gym.  The skills you learn in these classes will not only increase your 1 rep max lifts, but they will transfer over to your regular WOD scores and overall fitness.  Who knows, maybe you’ll even find yourself buying a singlet and competing in an Olympic lifting meet one day!

Classes will be held in the Southie White (the annex space off of the main space).  Each class lasts an hour. Coach Liv will be leading our group.  When Liv is traveling we will either switch days or programming will be available to keep the party going!

An example of class structure can be found below.
