Don’t Forget…
Today… Any & Everyone Are Welcome To The 8AM Olympic Lifting Session…
I’m Just Going To Throw Up A Re-Post…

You Asked For It… You Got It!!!

This Saturday, December 26th & Next Saturday, January 2nd…

We Are Hosting An Open Olympic Lifting Session!!!

I Know A Lot Of You Have Been Asking To Attend The Saturday Morning Olympic Lifting Session…

And Our Answer Has Always Been… “NO!!!”

Coach Ivan’s Programming For The Olympic Lifting Session Is Beautiful… It’s Smart…

I’ve Heard People Ask Him Before… “What Program Do You Follow?”

His Answer… “Mine… I Pay Attention To My Athletes & Program How I See Fit For Them…”

Exactly As It Should Be!!!

So… For The Next 2 Saturdays… Anybody Is Welcome To Attend The Olympic Lifting Session…

But… We Have Rules… Rules That Must Be Followed Or You Will Be Kicked Out…

This Last Cycle… We Started Out With Athletes Standing On Almost Every Single PlatForm & On The Pull Up Station Side Closest To The White Board…

Now We’re Down To, Maybe, On A Good Day, 4 Or 5 Athletes…

We’ll Explain The Rules These Next 2 Saturday’s…

But Here’s One Rule That Must Be Said Now…

WE START @ 8AM!

WE START @ 8AM!!

WE START @ 8AM!!!

That Doesn’t Mean That You Show Up @ 8AM… WE START @ 8AM!!!!

That Means That You Get Here Early Enough That You Have Time To Put On Your Knee Sleeves… Olympic Lifting Shoes…Wrist Wraps… Tape Up Your Thumbs… Perform A 500 Meter Row & JunkYard Dog!!!

At 8AM… Coach Ivan’s Huddles Us Up & Explains The Lifts We Will Be Performing For The Day & Then Takes Us Through A Warm Up…

And Then It’s Go Time!!!

Now… I Can Already Read People’s Minds…

You’re Probably Thinking…

“Why Does It Have To Be These Next 2 Saturdays??? Right After All The Christmas & New Year’s Eve Parties?!?!”

Because The Olympic Lifting Session Takes Commitment…

Also… If You Have Previously Been Kicked Out Of The Olympic Lifting Session… Well… Here’s Your Chance To Redeem Yourself!!!

We’ve Been Doing A Lot Of Olympic Lifting Lately…

Snatches… Cleans… Power Snatches… Power Cleans… Clean & Jerks… Power Clean & Jerks… From The Ground… From The Hang… Snatch Balances… The List Goes On & On…

And Some Of You Are Really Good @ Them… You Catch On Really Quick…

Some Of You… Not So Much…

So If You’re Not Interested… That’s Fine… Just Don’t Complain To Us When You’re Not Getting Better @ “X” Movement…

But If You Are Interested… Come On In… The Water’s Fine!!!

JUST DON’T BE LATE!!! WE START @ 8:00AM!!!

And I Know There’s Going To Be Some People Who Want To Do This But Might Be Shy Or Scared & Questioning If They’re Ready For It Or Not…

Ask Us… We’ll Be Straight Up With You…

Coach Ivan Will Be Running The Class… And I’m Not Sure If I’ll Even Be Lifting Depending On How Many People Show Up Because I Might Be Coaching As Well…

Also… For Our OG Olympic Lifting Athletes… We Might Be Asking You To Walk Around & Coach As Well…

For Our Newbies…

Be Patient!!!

We’re Not Doing Sit Ups/Push Ups/Box Jumps/Running…

We’re Performing Olympic Lifts…

Snatches… Clean & Jerks…

Also Progressions Of The Above Movements…

They’re Difficult…

They’re Going To Take Time To Get Them Down Kind Of Right…

A Lifetime To Get Them Perfect…

But When You Do…

It’s Beautiful…

I Know I Put These Videos Up Numerous Times…

But Seriously… Watch Them…

Notice His Body Position… His Movement… The Barbell…

It’s Perfect…

ALRIGHT… HERE WE GO!!!

MOBility: 7AM & 11AM

Open Olympic Lifting: 8AM

GRID WOD: 10AM

3…2…1…GO!!!
