So many of you know, or may not know, that Sicfit Austin offers an Olympic/ Strength Training program. I am proud to say that I head this program up and write the programming. Many of you who know me know that throwing heavy things around is my passion, what I would consider my specialty and what I love doing.
The boys getting a little warm up workout in
The best way to describe the class is that it is a hybrid Olympic skill training and strength and conditioning class. So to me it's the best of both worlds. The strength training portion of the class is geared to power and speed. The short workouts will help teach you to be explosive through the hips, legs and will force you to use strong mid line stabilization and will last no longer than 15 minutes. The strength met cons will often have sand bag work from running with them to pushing them over the head. Not to mention sleds and sledge hammers. The Sicfit Austin Gym has a wide variety of fun tools to use and help build strength and power which are key to Olympic weight lifting.
Now that your good and warm we move to the heavy lifting and the skill work. We will do some form of squat one time a week in class be it over head, back or front and it will be heavy. You will get strong!
Working the over head squat
The skill work is obviously geared to the two Olympic lifts, Clean and Jerk and the Snatch. There is a wide variety of ways to build these skills and to get strong at the same time and we do them all.
Over the past year and a half I have learned much and have been taught by some outstanding and very skilled athletes in the world of Olympic lifting and strength and conditioning. At the same time I am teaching you guys and gals I am learning myself and my passion has gone through the roof.
