Olympic Lifting Class at GF Paramus begins 4/6
This program is designed for both novice and more advanced lifters looking to master and improve their Olympic lifting technique, or as a short-term alternative fitness regimen to Strength Training or CrossFit classes. Whether you are an athlete or recreational lifter, there is no substitute for Olympic lifting to achieve total body, explosive movement. The complex nature of Olympic lifting, while exciting and fun, requires regular practice and a strong understanding of the principals and mechanics behind the Olympic movements. This program will help the novice lifter to develop better execution and understanding of the Clean, Snatch and Jerk. The focus will be on quality repetitions with light weights in order to ingrain correct movement patterns. More advanced lifters will work through a set program of skill work and increasing weights over time.
