New Olympic Weightlifting Class at the Shed!!!!!!!!

Beginning Wednesday, December 6th, we are offering an additional Olympic Weightlifting class for all members.  It will replace the current 7:30pm class.  To learn more, see below!

Who is this class for?
This class is for everybody from beginner to seasoned athlete.  It is a great time to get extra practice with the lifts and learn the safest and most efficient way to move a barbell.  Remember:  Olympic Weightlifting is its own Olympic sport, so it takes many years to master the lifts.  If you like to challenge yourself mentally and physically, then this class is for you!  

What do we offer?
Each member who comes in will get 1-on-1 attention, effective warm-up exercises and lifting progressions.  We will alternate the training focus each week (i.e. Clean and Jerks one week/snatches the next week).  Special attention will be put on strength, speed, power and flexibility development.  

Why Olympic Weightlifting?
Many of the top Strength and Conditioning programs incorporate olympic weightlifting in their training.  According to Science for Sport, 97% of high school athletic programs, 88% of NFL programs, 100% of NHL and 95% of NBA programs incorporate olympic weightlifting into their strength and conditioning programs.  Why?  Because it is regarded as one of the best tools for power-development along with skill and kinesthetic development.  
In short, it will help you learn the most efficient and safest way to move a heavy implement all while building strength and body awareness that will help you in all of your workouts, whether they involve a barbell or not.

Our Wednesday night Olympic Weightlifting class is in addition to our Friday 4:30 class and will be most effective if you attend both each week.  Workouts will be posted on this website every Tuesday and Thursday night.  It is highly recommended to use this class as your workout for the day, especially if you are just starting out.
