The Goal of the CrossFit Wake Forest Olympic Lifting program is for athletes to learn, practice, and train the clean, Jerk, and Snatch. Athletes of all ability levels are welcome and encouraged to participate.
These sessions are designed for two types of athletes...
1. CrossFit athletes looking to improve performance in CrossFit WODS.
2. New and seasoned weightlifters looking to compete in local and regional USAW sanctioned meets as part of our CrossFit Wake Forest Weightlifting Team.
If you are new to weightlifting, the exercises are taught and practiced starting with only a PVC pipe. Once technique becomes proficient with the PVC, we will move to a 10# barbell. We progressively add weight based on ability. The goal is to eventually integrate all new weightlifters into our regularly prescribed group workouts.
If you are someone who has experience in weightlifting, daily workouts are prescribed and technique issues will always be addressed. Our goal is to improve your performance through better efficiency in the movements and through well thought out, highly effective training programs.
