Alright boys and girls, it’s been quite a while since we’ve had a “specialty” class at 5 PM on weekdays.  Now that the dust has settled from the Open and we sit patiently in 15th place hoping nothing changes and we get an invitation to the Regional in Dallas, we thought it was a good time to fill that 5:00 hour with a new lifting class.

The class will be focused on developing the two Olympic lifts, the snatch and clean and jerk.  We will use Monday and Thursday for snatch focus and Tuesday and Friday will focus on the Clean and Jerk.  There will also be a lot of squatting involved.  We won’t have modifications for any of the movements so if you have injuries that prevent you from performing any of that days lift, expect to do what you can you do and leave the movements alone that may cause you pain or aggravate an injury further.  
We will begin the classes on Monday May 5th and in order to participate you will have to a proficient understanding of the the two movements as well as the different starting positions, such as high hang, low hang, and mid hang.  We will coach and correct but given the amount of work to get accomplished in 1 hour we will have very little time to teach movements.  This will be similar to the past “barbell club” in structure.  A solid understanding or at least practice in both lifts will be very helpful.
Tomorrow I will list the movements that we will focus on as well as the different lifts that you should know you 1 rep max lifts for.
We could potentially offer a morning class, but that is going to be based on trainer availability.  Once I have better insight into our trainers availability for next month, I’ll update you all on the morning class.  More details to follow tomorrow.

    I can’t make a 5:00 PM class, but I’m very interested and can do mornings.
