CrossFit 204 will be presenting a five-session clinic on Olympic weightlifting led by top regional competitor and outstanding lifter Tyson Takasaki. Olympic lifting is fun, and it’s also key to success in CrossFit competition. Tyson’s aim is to help set yourself up for success in the New Year, whether you want to compete in CrossFit or Oly meets or you just want to get better with the barbell.
The clinic will start Nov. 10 and end Dec. 8, and all sessions will take place on Saturday afternoons at 12:30 p.m. at 483 Berry St. All sessions will be 90 minutes.
This clinic is for intermediate to advanced CrossFit lifters, and you should have some experience with the Olympic lifts. This course will cover more advanced technique with an aim of dramatically increasing your understanding of the quick lifts and giving you the tools to improve your numbers on the snatch and clean and jerk.
The sessions will be hands-on with lots of time on the platform, so plan to lift in each session.
Topics will include:
The three pulls
Finishing the pull
Correct bar path
Getting under the bar rather than pulling it higher
Drills to correct specific problems
Working with blocks
How and why to perform position snatches and cleans
Strength vs. speed
The cost for the five-session course is $105 (GST included), and space is limited to 10 people. Registration is now full.
