Crossfit Olympic Lifting Certification
This weekend I am going to get my Crossfit OLY cert. in OKC on Saturday and Sunday. I will be spending two full days with CrossFit Coach Mike Burgener and his staff learning, studying and practicing the Olympic lifts. The snatch and clean and jerk bring speed, power, coordination, agility, accuracy and balance to your strength training. These lifts are indispensable to CrossFit programming and expert coaching is a powerful advantage.
