Olympic Lifting Training Camp

Hey folks: Jordan is preparing a full-day training camp on the Olympic lifts. We still have to nail down some dates, but it will be a Saturday early this spring. Jordan will be teaching the finer points of the Snatch and Clean and Jerk and we'll provide BBQ for lunch. Stay tuned for details - this will be something you won't want to miss. Space will be limited to 2 per platform.

From Jordan:
I'm excited to announce our first ever Barbell Strategy Olympic Lifting Training Camp! This will be a one day camp held on a Saturday this spring. You will have a three hour session in the morning, a break for a BBQ lunch that we'll provide, and a two hour session in the afternoon. This is for athletes that have done the Olympic lifts before and are trying to take their lifts to the next level. We will train squats and pulls in the morning and finish the day up with a friendly team competition. Everyone, even with a little experience in the Olympic lifts, is encouraged to sign up!
