Weightlifting 101/102 starts next Tuesday. This seminar will be a GREAT addition to your functional fitness workouts. You will get tons of one-on-one attention working on the platforms with the snatch and clean & jerk. The knowledge and technique you gain during the seminar will stay with you throughout your future workouts. This class will help not only with your olympic lifts, but your mobility, your power, your strength, etc etc. If you’ve hardly touched a barbell at the gym, Weightlifting 101 is for you! If you want to learn how to catch the lifts in the squat position, you will definitely do that in Weightlifting 102!
Did you read Lyndzey’s message from yesterday’s blog? She’s all business, so if you sign up for Weightlifting 101/102, get ready to work and get ready to 👹 LIFT 👹
Register on Mindbody today! Go to “Online Store,” select Olympic Weightlifting, and you’ll find the option for 101 or 102.
