With 8 USAW Certified Olympic Weightlifting coaches on staff, Ballston CrossFit provides a comprehensive approach to the sport of Olympic Weightlifting. The B&R Barbell Club is offered daily (our sister box CFR7) to focus on improving the Olympic lifts of our athletes (whether you are looking to compete on the platform or a beginner looking to improve your oly lifts).
Both the snatch and the clean and jerk bring speed, strength, power, coordination, flexibility and balance to your overall training while increasing explosive strength and explosive output. These lifts are an integral part of developing as an athlete, and the B&R Barbell Club is a great avenue to improve these very technical movements.
Athletes will learn the movements in detail, incorporate drills for each lift, and analyze their technique using video analysis (Coaches Eye) to help get a good sense of what’s going right, what’s going wrong and how your mechanics can be improved to maximize the loads lifted. Sessions will include a warm-up, mobility work, strength work and sometimes end with a brief conditioning session.
