During our traditional CrossFit classes, you’ll encounter the two predominant weightlifting movements – the snatch and the clean and jerk.
In the snatch, the weightlifter lifts the barbell from the floor to overhead in a single movement.
In the clean & jerk, the weightlifter lifts the barbell first from the floor to the shoulders (the clean) and then from the shoulders to overhead (the jerk).
We pride ourselves on technique at CrossFit Undeniable, and we work with athletes to master various positions within the lifts. This leads to more power, decreased injury, and heavier lifts. During a traditional 60-minute class, we’ll critique form and introduce drills, but if you’re goal is to specifically improve your snatch or clean and jerk, you need to dedicated time on those two lifts.
Our Olympic Weightlifting program is designed to help you refine technique and spend more time under the barbell. Over a six-week period, you’ll work with a coach in a small group setting across 18 workouts getting individualized feedback, learning new drills, and refining your lifting technique.
We run our Olympic Weightlifting specialty class once a year over a six-week period although we’ll run additional workshops throughout the year. During the six-week cycle, classes run three times per week for a total of 18 classes (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).
Each class is coach-led, and the program is limited to a maximum of 15 participants so each athlete gets individual feedback on their technique.
While we will have scheduled workouts throughout the week, you will receive the workouts over email, and you’re welcome to complete them on your own during our Open gym times.
Our last Olympic Lifting workshop was on Saturday, January 5, 2019 at 10:00 AM. This kicked off our six-week Olympic Lifting cycle that started on Monday, January 7, 2019. Signup is no longer available.
We’ll be scheduling additional workshops in the future so please keep an eye out on our events page and social media channels.
This includes unlimited access to all classes for the duration of the Olympic Weightlifting program.Sign Up (Not Currently Available)
I had some prior Olympic lifting experience before starting the cycle, but I had a lot of room for improvement. We did countless drills & accessory work that really focused on speed, good mechanics, and technique — all of which I was lacking, and I feel so much more confident after working with Kyle for six weeks. He is a fantastic coach – he keeps the class engaged, keeps the atmosphere fun, is a great communicator, and is really able to zone in on what each athlete needs to work on to achieve their goals. I PR’ed both my lifts at the end of the cycle, and feel much more competent & proficient when I see barbell movements come up in workouts. I’d take this class again in a heartbeat, and highly encourage anyone who wants to improve their lifts to sign up for the next round!Rebecca N.
Throughout this barbell cycle I received some of the best barbell coaching. The cycle was full of technical drills that resulted in each of my lifts becoming better. The detailed coaching and programming also helped me to understand these lifts more and how to approach these movements with more confidence.Autumn C.
