True Core Olympic Lifting Program
Our Olympic Weightlifting Class is coached by Alex Lee of the USNA’s Strength and Conditioning staff. The class will focus on refining and training the two Olympic Lifts: The Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. Accessory movements are also trained in order to help with the progression of the snatch and clean & jerk. Olympic lifting helps increase max power output that can be seen in explosive movements in sport or any typical WOD. By training the Olympic lifts we are helping members understand how to utilize their whole body as one strong powerful unit
