Basic Barbell Course
The barbell is the single most effective tool to get you strong, but it’s not as simple as just picking one up. Unfortunately many athletes and trainers do not maximize the effectiveness of these movements in training and many athletes never reach their full potential due to faulty mechanics.
Our 8-Week Basic Barbell Course will introduce you to the concept of linear progression and focus on increasing your Squat, Press, Deadlift, Bench Press, and Power Clean! Athletes will learn these basic barbell movements, refine technique, and train hard.
Beginning Monday, May 16th, participants will attend a total of 24 90-minute sessions with CrossFit Powerlifting and USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance Coach Ryan Brown implementing the basics of Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength Program. Athletes will learn the movements in detail, incorporate drills for each lift, and analyze their technique on video to help get a good sense of what’s going right, what’s going wrong and how their mechanics can be improved to maximize the loads lifted. Sessions will include a warm-up, mobility work, strength work and sometimes end with a brief conditioning session.
There are no minimum requirements or prerequisites to participate in this course. Athletes of all experience levels are welcome. This class will be capped at just 8 participants to maximize personal attention and time under the bar. Each athlete’s training program will be individualized according to their strengths and weaknesses.
Mon/Weds/Fri 6pm to 7:30pm
Price: $399 for all 24 sessions (current CFD athletes will not have to pay their monthly membership fee while attending)
