Who’s ready for the return of Verve Barbell Club?


Verve Barbell Club is making a return!!

The next Barbell Club cycle will begin Monday January 8th at 7pm. Here are all your important, need to know details:

Dates: This is a 6 week cycle starting Monday January 8th

Days: Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays

Time: 7pm-8pm

Cost: Current Verve members- $40 (for 6 weeks), non-Verve members- $150 (for 6 weeks)*
*All VBC dues to be paid in full prior to start of 6 week cycle.

Who is the Barbell Club for?

VBC is a program written for anyone interesting in working on the Olympic lifts, the snatch and the clean & jerk. Prior to the start of the 6 week cycle there will be a test day. This will be Thursday January 4th at 7pm. Those interested in participating in the 6 week cycle are encourage to take the hour to find both their 1RM snatch (the kind with a squat) and 1RM clean & jerk (the one with a squat and a split jerk). These maxes will be used for the remainder of the cycle, as the majority of the program is written based on percentages. It is not advised to enter this 6 week program using maxes that have not been hit within the last month. 

What can you expect from VBC? What are the minimum requirements needed to join the VBC?

While each class will have a trainer present, their primary roles are to keep the class moving through the various exercises and cue/ correct movement in each exercise. There is no formal warm-up or formal instruction on movements prior to performing them. It will be required that those involved show up approx 15 minutes early prior to the start of class to warm-up. It is required that athletes involved have an understanding of how to perform the Olympic lifts (snatch, clean, and jerk), and a basic understanding of some variations associated with these movements (muscle vs. power vs. squat, high hang vs. hang vs. ground, push jerk vs. split jerk, etc.). There is no requirement that any VBC member be really, really, really good at any of this. . . that’s why you are working on it. 😉
