Learn the Olympic lifts with a Commonwealth gold medalist

24 Jun


Crossfit SE11 is delighted to be able to play host to Giles Greenwood, the former Commonwealth gold medalist to run a 3 hour Olympic weightlifting masterclass here in London.

The goal of a Greenwood Weightlifting (GWL) workshop is to improve your technique with heavy weights on the snatch and clean & jerk. At the end of the workshop you should have a better understanding of the key positions in the lifts, variation between lifters and the technique that is right for you.

You can use the knowledge and practice gained during the workshop to improve your programming and increase your personal bests. The session starts with a short talk about technique in the snatch and clean, particularly the pull. The aim of the talk is to present weightlifting technique in a simple and accessible way to give you a clear understanding of what we hope to achieve in the practical section. Followed by some pre-lifting Q&A’s.

Once the talking is done it’s time to put the theory into action. A warm up using the GWL teaching sequence to correct form and reinforce good habits leads on to a run up to 1RM’s on both snatch and clean & jerk. Not necessarily PB’s (although that’s always nice!) but it’s useful to see where your form starts to break down so you know what to look out for in future.

After all that there’s usually time for some more Q&A’s so you can ask the question you didn’t think of earlier. The whole workshop should last 3 hours and is a measly £40.
