By now you’ve heard how 98% of those who participated in our last strength cycle set new personal records for their Bench Press, Back Squat, and Deadlift.
Almost immediately I was ask when the next strength cycle would start?
Today starts our next strength cycle, which will focus on Snatch and Clean & Jerk.
Dont shy away from these, just like the last program these may be newer movements to you, but our coaches are there to help you understand and develop these movements.
These lifts are pivotal in developing overall strength and creating explosive power. Building lean muscle ass and loosing weight in the process!
What can you expect during this strength cycle?
- During this strength cycle you will have two programmed class days that will be focused on weightlifting. These classes will include primers/warmups, technique, and strength work.
- Each class will be led by one of our coaches, all who have experience preforming and coaching these lifts.
- In addition to the two programmed days, there will also be two additional days of strength training available. These days will be optional and can be completed outside regular classes. In total, everyone will have access to 4 days of strength training revolving around the Olympic Lifts.
How will the strength cycle be structed at the gym?
- Monday – Snatches, Back Squats
- Wednesday – Clean Jerks, Front Squats
- Friday – Auxiliary Training
- Saturday – Make up & Skill Work
We will also be bringing in a renowned Olympic Weightlifting coach to lead a seminar halfway through our cycle. He has helped to improve many lifters technique in the past and has coached a top 5 Nationally Ranked lifter as well as a National Record Holder.
At the end of the 10 weeks, we will be holding an inter-gym Olympic Weightlifting competition. At this competition, all participants will have the ability to attempt three lifts at both the snatch and clean and jerk with the goal of achieving the highest total possible!
They will always teach and correct all movement to ensure your safety. The Olympic lifts are fundamentally safer than the traditional lifts.
We are all looking forward to these next 10 weeks and seeing the improvements that are made throughout this cycle.
If you have any questions regarding the cycle please see Joe, Hussey, or any of our other Strength and Conditioning coaches.
