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.
