BURGENER STRENGTH - WEIGHTLIFTING LEVEL 1 COURSE
The course objective is to teach coaches and athletes how to teach and perform the snatch, clean, jerk – safely, efficiently and effectively. Spend 2 days dialing in the fundamentals, drills and positions for both the snatch and clean & jerk in both coaching and performance breakouts. The focus is on participants learning and experiencing the foundational teaching points for instructing others to achieve them. (Formerly the CrossFit® Weightlifting Course)
Fundamentals - Stance, grip, and position are critical components for every lift performed in weightlifting.
Burgener Warm-Up and The Skill Transfer Exercises - 10 movements that break down the complexity of the snatch into practical, effective, and specific movements in order to dial in technical efficiency.
High Hang Position - The first and most effective position for teaching a new athlete how to snatch or clean.
Launch Position - Critical for both the snatch and clean, as it puts the body in a position to generate speed and power throughout the remainder of the lift.
Start Position - Learn how to properly “set up” and lift the barbell from the floor to the knees.
Front Squat - 5 variations that help teach and develop a strong receiving position in the clean.
Jerk Skill Transfer Exercises - 5 progressive movements that teach an athlete how to take the barbell from shoulder to overhead.
Split Jerk - Learn the 5 points of performance for the split jerk through a detailed diagram that marks the feet.
