Olympic lifting encompasses two lifts: the snatch and the clean and jerk. These two movements are widely used throughout CrossFit and their carryover can be seen from wall balls to thrusters. As frustrating as the lifts can be, we at CrossFit Strong believe in perfecting these movements to improve your overall athleticism and body awareness.
CrossFit Strong Weightlifting utilizes the Snatch and Clean and Jerk as well as assistance exercises to help improve timing, coordination, and confidence under a barbell. Technique is vital in performing these lifts, and this element is emphasized above all else. Our program provides a positive environment for all skill levels, from a beginner to those who are familiar with the Olympic lifts. In our classes, positions, tempo, speed, and strength are all a part of your journey to learning and loving the snatch and clean and jerk.
