What is Weightlifting?

Weightlifting official definition: a competitive sport that evaluates the strength and technique of an athlete by lifting weights.

Olympic Weightlifters are broken out into bodyweight categories and compete against one another based on two lift events – the clean and jerk and the snatch.

Powerlifters are also broken out into bodyweight categories with focus given to Back Squat, Deadlift and Bench Press.

Strongman also utilizes bodyweight categories but focus is given to unique odd object lifts – Log Press, Atlas Stones, Sled and Yoke work, Strength Medleys and much more.

In layman’s terms? Athletes learn how to control every component of their bodies through intense discipline to lift heavy amounts of weight in feats of superhuman strength.

Our Weightlifting Focus

Weightlifting programs here are heavily based on the Olympic lifts called the Snatch and the Clean-and-Jerk. These lifts are primary, and focusing on them gives great body positioning, aesthetics, stance, mobility, and base.

We also focus on the powerlifts: the Back Squat, Deadlift, the Bench Press. These lifts are excellent for building raw power and overall strength.

To round out our weightlifting regimen, we have Strongman. Attention given to odd object training, heavy stones, sandbags, axle, logs, and other implements helps us to develop strength, conditioning, and fix imbalance issues in the body.

“Our quality programs are led by a carefully selected team of coaches. We are with you each step of your journey to a stronger, leaner, faster, and more confident you.

You can expect a very unique blend of programs, each designed to enhance and complement the other, ultimately enhancing your human performance. Each program is led by a specialist in their respective field.”
