Recursive’s Olympic Lifting Program!

Back by popular demand – and it is new and improved!

The two Olympic Lifts – the Clean and Jerk and the Snatch – are two of the most technical movements you will do anywhere. Both of those will take a loaded barbell from the ground to locked out overhead.

The mere practice of the Olympic lifts teaches an athlete how to apply large amounts of force to an external object. By lifting the bar from the ground to overhead, the entire body is used. As you begin the process of adding weights to the Olympic Lifts, the entire body compensates by getting bigger and stronger.

What muscles do the Olympic Lifts build? All of them. It is a simple matter of the length of the movement of the bar. In a bicep curl, the bar may move four inches. In a Clean and Jerk, the bar moves from the floor to overhead, upwards of seven and a half feet! Every muscle, tendon, and ligament in the body is used.

This program will focus on optimizing three main components of olympic lifting technique:
(a) barbell trajectory (i.e., path of the barbell)
(b) barbell height
(c) time to fixation (i.e., how long it takes you to get under the bar).
And will culminate in week 6 by testing your 1 rep max Snatch and Clean and Jerk.

While this class can be for those just starting Olympic Lifting or those who are well practiced, it is a great complement to our normal Recursive programming. And since this is a technique driven program, you will not be too tired or sore to take classes while doing this program!

Class limit of 8 athletes per session to ensure everyone gets plenty of personalized training. Classes will be 60 minutes long each and will run for 6 weeks on Thursdays at 6:30pm starting May 31st, 2018.


Cost for the class is $179 for 6 weeks
Cost with a regular Monthly Membership is $89 for 6 weeks
