Cycle begins Monday 1/8 and continues for 7 weeks.

This first cycle of the year is going to be used to get everyone re-acquainted with Olympic Weightlifting fundamentals. The focus each week will be building body awareness with the bar, properly producing power with the legs, and developing stability under heavy weight and increased completion of lifts.

By working on these specifics, you can expect yourself to feel more comfortable with you lifts and start to FEEL what went wrong with a missed lift and KNOW how to make an adjustment before the end of the lift.

If you are planning to take part in this cycle or ANY of our barbell cycles, we ask that you commit and invest your time in sticking with it from beginning to end.

You must be registered through the following form to participate in the cycle. Registration ends Friday 1/12.

With the CrossFit Games Open coming at the end of February this gives us the perfect opportunity to build and maintain a better squat/press/pull strength-base as we know a higher volume of the following are coming:

SQUATS: thrusters, air squats, box jumps, lunges (weighted, unweighted), front squats, full snatches/cleans, etc.

PRESSES: thrusters, “shoulder-to-overhead” (press, push press, jerks), thrusters, handstand pushups, etc.

PULLS: deadlifts, cleans, hang cleans, pullups, toes-to-bar, dumbbell snatches, etc.

We also plan to build confidence with your midline stability and grip strength. We hope to increase your intelligence with what’s reasonable with your training so you have time to recover.

Those who plan to do well in the Open should be supplementing with CrossFit workouts at least 3x/week.
