Two days are spent detailing each lift (snatch on Day 1, clean and jerk on Day 2). The focus is on participants experiencing the basic positions and learning the foundational teaching points for instructing others to achieve them. The snatch and clean and jerk bring speed, power, coordination, agility, accuracy and balance to training and are indispensable to CrossFit programming and developing a well-rounded athlete.
The Weightlifting Course teaches participants:
- The proper stance, grip and positions for the snatch, clean and jerk.
- The Burgener warm-up, skill-transfer exercises and the rationale for each component.
- Common faults and corrections for each lift, with opportunities to coach other participants in the lifts.
