Strength and Conditioning group classes for everyone
At Barbell Strategy, we like to keep it simple - we believe in barbells and kettlebells. In our program, you will get lots of exposure to the traditional powerlifts (squat, bench press, and deadlift), but our history is centered around the Olympic lifts (snatch and clean and jerk), so you’ll get practice with those too. All these movements can seem deceptively simple, but provide a lifetime of challenges to master! We’re open from 4:45 to 6:30 every weekday evening. Be ready for an hour of work, but get into the gym when you can - no need to rush. Our program is simple, effective, and will fit with your schedule.
We start every day with strength work centered around the traditional lifts. We want you to have frequent exposure to these lifts so that you become an expert in them quickly. After the main strength work, you'll move into a seasonal program: generally we take 6-12 weeks at a time and focus on a particular goal. It could be preparing for our favorite semi-yearly competition - the Tactical Strength Challenge, or it could be a back-to-basics strength cycle (like a Wendler 5/3/1), or we could even be experimenting with new kettlebell programs. We focus so that you get a chance to get good at something, but we switch it up often enough that you'll never get bored.
Anti-glycolytic Training (AGT)
Every third or fourth day we spend some time on anti-glycolytic training which is the perfect way for both strength and endurance athletes to improve their conditioning. Anti-glyolytic training is our secret sauce, you'll walk out of the gym feeling great - almost like you didn't even get a workout! Over time your speed and endurance will improve without you even noticing! We use this style of training for our professional athletes, weekend warriors, and everyone else too!
