ANNOUNCEMENT: CROSSFIT THRESHOLD’S OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING SEMINAR IS THIS SATURDAY AT 11AM-1PM. PLEASE RSVP ON THE SIGN UP SHEET IN THE GYM! HERE IS AN OVERVIEW FROM ZACH EISENSTEIN WHO WILL BE ONE OF THE COACHES TEACHING THE CLINIC:
Guys,

I know you have all seen the sign up sheet in the gym for Saturday’s olympic lifting seminar which will be taught by Adriana and me. Some of you also might be thinking why do I need to learn the olympic lifts, I’m not trying to compete, get bulky, be too strong (I don’t know why not) etc…

Here are just a few reasons to sign up:

1) Learn to safely and effectively execute the fastest, and most powerful lifts in existence (snatch,clean & jerk respectively)

2) The olympic lifts are the only lifts shown to increase maximum oxygen uptake, the most important marker for cardiovascular fitness

3) Faster WOD times through increased efficiency!

4) Move up to Rx’d weight in CF benchmarks (Grace, Isabel…)

5) They’re fun!

The benefits of Olympic weightlifting don’t end with strength, speed, power, and flexibility. The clean and jerk and the snatch both develop coordination, agility, accuracy, and balance and to no small degree. Both
of these lifts are as nuanced and challenging as any movement in all of sport. Moderate competency in the Olympic lifts confers added prowess to any sport (Crossfit Training Guide).

Adri and I will be presenting knowledge we’ve acquired from renowned trainers including Greg Everett and Mike Burgener.

Sign up. Have some fun and learn how to lift heavy stuff over your head!


And Grace said she was scared of climbing a rope….
