02 Dec Olympic Lifting Options
Posted at 22:55h
|nothing like 2 man teams pulling a RZR for a 5K
This week you will notice we are adding in the option of an Olympic lift to be done during the strength/skill portion of certain workouts (depending upon the programming). So for example this will be Monday’s training:
Double KB Strict Press – 3
Spend remaining time working heavy singles
100 X Double KB Clean and Press (35/18)
* DO NOT SET BELLS DOWN. Only authorized resting position is farmers carry hold. Do not set on shoulders and/or legs. INTEGRITY. If you set bells down or use unauthorized resting position, you immediately perform 25 burpees.
As you can see during the S/S portion we will have 2 different options going on at the same time. On the gym floor we will separate these two groups out with a coach with each group. HOWEVER, in order to participate in the Olympic lifting portion, you must have taken an Olympic Lifting intro. To do so, send Coach Zak an email (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and he will get you started.
The Olympic lifts aren’t just something you can pick up on your own. You need to be trained by a certified coach to get you started down the right path. Just so happens all of our coaches are USAW level 1 coaches.
We believe this will accommodate everyone’s needs and give you guys a chance to pick what you want to work on. The choice is yours. If O-lifting doesn’t interest you, no problem you can still work the basic lifts and continue to advance your strength levels. Then after the S/S portion is over we link back up for the finisher.
See you guys for another great week of training!
