Would you like to improve your Olympic Lifts? We were contacted by Brandon Jackson, USA Weightlifting Coach & CrossFit Level 1 Trainer to host a 2 or 3 day camp. The cost would be $250.00 for the 2 days or $400.00 for the 3 days. In the camp you would learn:
* proper technique for more efficient movement
* proper Bar path
* Cues to help with understanding how bar should move* mental exercises for attempting maximal lifts
* progressions that will help practice proper position
* drills to reinforce good mechanics
* complimentary movements to improve strength and reinforce technique
* demonstration of the movements for repetition.
If we have enough interest we will host a two or three day camp with Brandon Jackson. Let us know if you would like us to host a Camp by emailing email@example.com.

Technique, Technique, Technique
This is my philosophy.
Of all the lifters I have seen and studied, in my years of experience, the technique Olympians demonstrate is the same from the time they grab the bar until they reach attempts at 100%. Most people, every time they lift, each attempt looks completely different. My program is based on methods that are proven to be sound based on the theory of function, form, efficiency and repetitive movement at sub maximal weights. In order to be able to hit 100% correctly, the bar must be moved correctly. That is the key to being a great weightlifter as well as Crossfit athlete. The key to success is remembering that all athletes are not created equal and no one method provides the sole answer for all. I take each athlete I work with and create a technique based on their mechanics and own body movement; as well as body awareness.
