West Bloomfield MI's Most Successful Olympic Lifting Gym
Strengthen your body with our success driven olympic lifting program!
Olympic lifting can be beneficial to ANYONE, regardless of your age or fitness level. This is because you're able to adjust your weight, and utilize most of your muscle groups when you're lifting.
Olympic lifting is one of the “mainstays” of what makes CrossFit so successful. It’s called “Olympic” Lifting because it is the only form of lifting performed in the Olympics.
Olympic Lifting Increases Overall Power in Younger Athletes
Olympic lifting is great way to strengthen and develop the body’s joints, as well as improve athletic performance in sprinting, vertical jumping, and any other explosive maneuver. Olympic Lifting is one of the few exercises that works your entire body, moving weights farther and faster than traditional workouts.
For older athletes, the fact that the body constantly has downward pressure exerted on its skeletal structure has been proven multiple times to greatly improve bone density. This is essential to long term health and preventing injuries at any age.
How do CrossFit Students Benefit from our Olympic Lifting Class?
Our West Bloomfield Olympic Lifting class focuses on learning to move properly. It takes time and dedication to learn the right form and technique to properly execute the core moves like the "Snatch" and the "Clean and Jerk". Fine-tuning these movements allows everyday people to become monsters in the gym. By using the right form and technique, we’ve seen smaller lifters to outperform larger, stronger athletes.
Every Athlete Should Incorporate Olympic Lifting Into Their Fitness Routine
Snatches and Clean and Jerks are essential exercises for athletes of every sport - not just weightlifters. The benefits of Olympic Lifting include:
- Increased Power
- Increased Vertical Jump
- Faster Sprinting Speed
- Improved Body Composition
- Improved Flexibility
