Adult Olympic Weightlifting (16+)

Categories: Weightlifting, sport performance

Layne Performance’s premier class and home of the Gator Weightlifting Club. Olympic weightlifting requires enormous strength and power. As a result, weightlifters are among the most powerful and explosive athletes. At Layne Performance, we focus on building lower body strength and explosiveness through squats and squat variations, pulling motions, and the Olympic lifts (snatch and clean & jerk).

The Olympic weightlifting class meets four times per week. Weightlifters are required to attend four sessions per week. Weightlifters are also encouraged to compete in local and national competition.

First week is FREE for new weightlifters.

Class schedule: MTRF 6-8am EST, MWF 5-7pm, Saturday 9-11am.
