With the success of our first two weightlifting seminars hosted in house at Outlaw CrossFit North, the next step is to take the show on the road- and that’s exactly what we’re doing.
Brian Dickie of CrossFit CPHS attended our first seminar earlier this year, and has asked us to come up to his gym in Ottawa to put on our weightlifting seminar.
Thus, we are pleased to announce….
Outlaw North Weightlifting Seminar, hosted at CrossFit CPHS.
April 20, 2013
9:00 am – 3:30 pm
About the seminar…
Here at Outlaw North we love to lift weights. The Snatch and Clean & Jerk are a focal point of our programming for a few reasons:
– The lifts themselves, and their accessories comprise a very large portion of the movement lexicon in our sport.
– They movements are very high skill and will not only improve body awareness required to perform the lifts well, but will also carry over in body awareness to perform gymnastic movements.
– Performing the lifts regularly builds both strength and explosiveness through the hip and posterior chain (important for nearly every athletic movement you’ll ever do).
Come on out and learn some new techniques, hit some PR’s, and take away some drills and techniques to help improve your lifts back at your training facility.
