Weightlifting – APRIL

Posted 31st March 2019 by claudia clarkson

This month sees us following a similar structure to last month’s programming. Percentages are slightly higher each week in comparison to last month. We still have a de-load week in our 3rd week, sharpening up our movement pattern and resting those legs for even bigger numbers in Week 4!! So much fun to be had over the next month.

I have added a few different drills, particularly with a focus on a few pausing in our catch position in both Oly lifts. Getting comfortable in the catch and strengthening our core. Thursdays will always alternate between Snatch and C&J drills, just to spice things up a little bit.

Again, everyone is welcome to the Oly classes, so if you don’t know your numbers, it doesn’t matter, it is about learning the movement and using what you learn in the Crossfit classes.

Looking forward to coaching you all over the coming month and just having a right old laugh!

Peace Out
