Olympic Weightlifting Class

Fit@Oracle decided to host an Olympic Weightlifting class at the Broomfield campus.  It was led by Jonathan who was very knowledgeable and comfortable working with a variety of skill levels.  As we did not have barbells, the class was conducted exclusively with PVC.  9 students were in attendance (6 girls, 3 guys, including Stefan, Sam's Dad).

We started out with air squats and reverse lunges.

Then we did snatch grip shoulder shrugs, high elbows, muscle snatches, power snatches. and squat snatches.

We also did push presses, push jerks, and split jerks.

Finally we finished with tabata dumbbell snatches.  8 rounds of 20 seconds on 10 seconds rest with 15# dumbbell.  I got 46 reps and was consciously considering form on most reps.

Finished with strict pull-up, 8 tuck pull-ups and 1 L sit pull-up.

Also spent 5 minutes on double unders.  I could get 4-5 strung together several times.
