February 9 from 2-6pm

at Beyond Limits Training

Olympic lifting develops strength, speed and power unlike any other training.  The Clean and Jerk and Snatch have become increasingly popular choices in training regimens.  Strength coaches and CrossFit boxes are leading the trend.  Maximizing hip power and explosiveness used in olympic lfiting has tremendous carry over to just about any movement or sport.  

The only downside is the considerable technical experience and coaching needed to maximize efficiency in these lifts.  Other key physical components include flexibility, coordination, agility and accuracy.  While developing basic power movements such as the deadlift, squat and press provide a great foundation, the above factors demand great skill and practice.  But, who doesn’t want to maximize strength, speed and power while also enhancing flexibility and function?  Exactly.  Pretty much anyone training for a purpose or sport would like all of the above.
