At CrossFit London’s Olympic Weightlifting classes, you get to follow our dedicated Olympic weightlifting programming. Whether you are a CrossFitter, an Olympic weightlifter, an athlete looking to dominate the competition, or just looking for a great new sport – this is the program for you.
The value of the Olympic Lifts outstrips their much-promoted development of strength and power. Those who struggle to learn the Clean and Jerk and the Snatch, often suffer from a lack of sufficient speed, flexibility and ability irrespective of how much strength they possess. Refinement of the moves develops exacting standards of coordination accuracy and balance . These amazing physical gifts, not available to most gym goers, can be yours.
You will find that directly proportional to the load you can Clean (for example) are the benefits in terms of strength, power, accuracy, flexibility, speed, accuracy, agility and balance; amazing gains from a single movement.
The Olympic lifts are a complete exercise which incorporates a “super-useful” core to extremity motor recruitment pattern, along with learning how to generate and transmit large and sudden forces.
We have been teaching people how to Snatch from scratch and Clean and Jerk since 2005 and we have developed all the progressive learning drills to help you succeed.
