Barbell Strength and Power

Strength is the basal bio-motor ability upon which ALL other abilities rely.

As Mark Rippetoe once said: “Strong people are generally more useful and harder to kill.”

No matter what your fitness or life goals, it’s likely that you could benefit from more strength, speed, and power. It’s also likely that you could benefit from better technique in the classic lifts. And that’s what this group workout is all about. Making long term progress in the Olympic lifts as well as basic strength lifts, and conditioning oneself with supplementary exercises. This class also serves as the basic template for preparing athletes for competition in strength sports, such as Weightlifting, Powerlifting and Strongman, as well as a necessary component of CrossFit Games preparation.

This class is based on our coaches combined years of experience in the high school and collegiate weight room setting: it’s an evidence-based and practical approach to making people stronger and more powerful. It is open to ALL members of the gym who have completed fundamentals or whom have current 1RM data for the following lifts:

  • Snatch
  • Clean and Jerk
  • Back Squat
  • Press
  • Bench
  • Deadlift

This class is currently offered Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights at 6:00pm, as well as those same mornings at 6:00am. Additionally, there is Olympic weightlifting only specific programming offered on Tuesday nights at 6pm and Saturday mornings at 9am.
