CrossFit Freedom Olympic Lifting Program 

A five-class course designed to improve the technique and efficiency of the Olympic Lifts and all variations for Crossfitters.  Each one-hour class will be devoted to either the Snatch and it's variations or the Clean and Jerk and it's variations.  All athletes will pre- and post-test by performing the bench mark workouts Isabel and Grace, and at the end of the course will establish a one rep max Snatch, and Clean and Jerk.

The Olympic Lifting Course will cover:

  • Full technique of both the Snatch and Clean and Jerk
  • Video capture used to improve and evaluate technique for all variations of both lifts.  For example, power snatch, push jerk, power clean, etc...
  • Assistance lifts to improve performance that won't typically be used during regular Crossfit classes. 
  • Different techniques for improving 1 rep maxes and also performance of each different lift during WODs (high rep)
